Happy New Year!

Wow! It has been a long time since I edited my first Welcome post.  I will be posting more content in starting today and through 2011.

What brought me back to my blog was an email update from Matt Mullenweg of WordPress.   Updating to 3.0.4 could not have been easier, just login and click update.

Now, for an update on something outside of my blog.  Yesterday, I successfully made kimchi jjigae – kimchi stew!  The idea has been brewing in my mind for a while.  It all started with an innocent google search for a simple question: “Does kimchi go bad?”  I asked because the fermenting sounds I hear when I open up a jar of kimchi made me wonder.

The short answer to that question (Does kimchi go bad?) is yes.  However, a just a little internet research will tell you that it can last a very long time in the refrigerator (over 6 months).  Ripe kimchi is especially good for recipes like kimchi jjigae.
