Dinner out with English Class

We had dinner out with our English class the other night. When the Air Force sends you to a new base you are usually given a sponsor. A sponsor helps you for about the 1st week or so get into a new home and they also drive you around while you get settled. Our sponsors were in charge of this English class before we were and when it was time for them to move we took it over. Well our sponsors came back for a visit so off to dinner we went. Here is some of the gang...
Not to sure what this was. I was scared and didn't try it but the hubby dubbed it pretty good. That man will try anything!!!
Now this was wonderful!! It was a squash cooked in butter and honey til even the skin was soft. Anything cooked in honey and butter tastes good if you ask me!!!

There were so many of us we had to put three long tables together. Here you can see our end...and how the dishes of food were fast being eaten!! See when you go to a Korean restaurant you get big plates of food and side dishes that everyone shares from...much sharing was going on our way!!

Here are our wonderful sponsors...Hi guys!!!
This was crepes with vegetables shiffinoded (sp?) and a sauce. Not to bad.

This stuff is a drink. It is really sweet...I think it's made from rice. You have it at the end of a meal.
This was if you couldn't tell. I really! liked this. I was supposed to share with the hubby but if you snooze you lose and when he blinked it was gone....wonder who ate it??! heehee

Last but not least was this stuff. It was candied fish skin and I gotta say...I didn't hate it. It wasn't bad! All in all we had a great time and before we knew it the clock was saying it was almost 10 o'clock. I love going out with our English class. It's one of the best things about being here...language barrier aside.
Happy eating everyone!!!

Hi,I enjoyed your blog and I'll be coming to Seoul and Daegu from September 18-October 10 to visit my son. Can you tell me the names of some quilt shops that I can visit while I'm there?

Tanya just shared Japanese food on her blog, and here you are sharing Korean food. I think it is amazing how different food is in different parts of the world. Evenif the ingredients ar the same, they are prepared so differently.

Hry there - long time no visit! Since I'm currenyly off work for who know how long I'm finally getting a chance to catch up on my blog reading. I see the Captain got back safe and sound - good. I won't comment much as typing one handed is VERY hard for me.
