Cheonan Odds 'n' Ends

While my sister was here, we both went down to Cheonan quite a bit for frequent family get-togethers. Here are some Cheonan eats that got lost in all the other blogging activity:

Breakfast at Cheonan: a bowl of oats, some black raspberry bread from Veggie Holic with peanutbutter and apricot preserves, a few pieces of fruit, and a cup of OJ.

This was a cold soy bean drink that my mom randomly bought from the local market. It's basically just soy beans blended very well with water and is used to make cold soybean noodles. It's somewhat of an acquired taste, but it's very refreshing in the summer (although that's not very relevant now that it's fall).

The holy trinity of 'jangs': ssamjang, gochujang, and a huge bowl of dwenjang sauce.
