Captain,

Perhaps he meant to say a very antagonistic French (redundant?) toast.

Lots of good suggestions above for Asian-style food. The stir-fry suggestions are especially helpful.

But for me, I usually cook western food at home.

I usually cook a big pot of soup on Sat. or Sunday, then eat that with sandwiches and salad during the week. There are lots of easy soups to make. Look on the internet for recipes that appeal to you.

I also like cassaroles. You can make lots of tasty cassaroles in those deep electric skillets from LG stores. Chicken and rice; beef stroganoff; chicken tetrazinni; pork chops with stuffing...

Anyone miss Indian food?

Get the spices and stuff from wherever you can and mandu pit (dumpling skins) from the supermarket freezer, you can make potato samosas pretty easily.

Can you cook with the tap water? I've been told not to drink it, even if it's boiled, but can you still cook with it??

I cook with it all the time, and I seem okay. But my digestive system does go for a loop in general here in Korea. Too many...greasy foods. -_-

I don't want to start a whole 'nother water discussion, but most all the Korean people I know do drink the water after it has been boiled. They make green tea/brown rice tea or pori cha (barley tea) and drink it as we do water. I cook with it all the time. I wash my vegetables in it. In my opinion, it is fine to cook with it.

My guess is that people eat food at home.
But i could be wrong...who am I to know such a thing?
But, food seems like the logical choice to be eating at home no?

Okay, so here is my advice on eating well: Get an Oven. A real one, not one of those two inch toaster oven thingies. They are useless. You can get real ovens with four burner ranges at Carrefour, Wal Mart, Kim's Club, and many other places. The prices are reasonable, often under a million won. Gas or electric--take your pick.

For me, eating well is extremely important, and while I enjoy going to restaurants (Korean and otherwise), if I couldn't cook I wouldn't be as happy. A friend is coming over this weekend, and we're having fried chicken, pinto bean soup, potatoes (mashed, fried, or salad--we haven't decided yet) deviled eggs, and corn bread. Both my friend and I are from the southern region of the United States, and we decided it would be nice to have a "good, home cooked Southern meal."

I live in Seoul and often shop at the Red Door in Itaewon, and Han Nam Market, where one can get such things as corn meal, cheeses, dill pickles, et al. Even if you live in a small town in Korea, fruit and veggies are everywhere, and cheap. Okay, you might still have to go to Seoul or Pusan for some things, like cauliflower or pineapples

I visit the States about once a year and stock up on things that I can't get even at those places, and my mother always sends a care package once or twice a year. I just recieved a package of matzoh and everything I need for Pesach which is coming up in a couple of weeks. Yummmmm...matzoh ball soup at Tardisrider's house! (This year in Seoul, next year in ...)

Korean cookbooks in English are available at major bookstores, and I couldn't live without my well worn copy of "The Joy of Cooking," which is a must have for anyone. It even tells you the best way to boil an egg, if that's all you need to know.

Oh, and just in case you're wondering, I'm neither female nor particularly overweight! Razz Razz
