Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind. ~Mary Ellen Chase

Monday With Friends!

It was a beautiful day so off we went to the the Huntington Library and Gardens we go. We had to have tea at the Rose Cottage Tea Room and shared special times together. Two bottles of champagne later, all was well. We walked for two hours afterwards!

Did You Know? - Japchae, jabchae, chapchae, chop chae, or chap chae (Korean: 잡채) is a Korean dish made from sweet potato noodles (called dangmyeon, Korean: 당면), stir fried in sesame oil with vegetables (typically thinly sliced carrots, onion, spinach, and mushrooms), sometimes served with beef, and flavoured with soy sauce, and sweetened with sugar. It is usually served garnished with sesame seeds and slivers of chili. It may be served hot or cold.

This dish is served at Korean parties and special occasions, with seasonal vegetables added.

Japchae is most commonly served as a side dish, though it may be a main dish. It is often served on a bed of rice; with rice it is known as japchae-bap (잡채밥), bap (밥) meaning "rice."
