Walnuts For Sale!

13 Dec

Did you know when you buy walnuts, you should shake each one first? If it rattles, it’s dried and you should put it back! Find the ones that don’t shake ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

*I know this because I was,shopping like an uncouth wild thing just picking up a handful and a Chinese nai nai shook her head in a tsk-tsk manner and started teaching me the proper way ๐Ÿ˜Š

New Treats!

24 Nov

My student brought these today! They are a weird taste combination between sweet (sugary) and fritos? If that makes sense? ๐Ÿค”
It’s like a healthy cookie texture + fritos flavoring? I dunno ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ But yummy!!!

#Foodie – Eggs are Gross ๐Ÿ˜ญ

20 Jan

One of the daily issues of life in #China is that they don’t clean the Eggs before you get them. So you gotta get the poop off before you can stick ’em in the fridge. These Eggs actually came from #Walmart and were in a real #Egg cart๐Ÿ˜ฎ Usually you gotta pick ’em out of a giant pile by hand ๐Ÿ˜บ


#NoSmoking. Really

16 Jan

โ€‹We’re still a little stumped by this one.  About 8 #cigarette holders were on the table, filled with water and #nosmoking signs๐Ÿšญ.  

Ok, I get the ‘no smoking’ ๐Ÿšญ. . . . but then why put out 8 cigarette holders๐Ÿšฌ at all???  If to SAY no smoking, wouldn’t one do the job?๐Ÿ˜‚

They took up a lot of table space, and we were all just rather perplexed ๐Ÿ˜œ

Fishy Food

โ€‹Cwabbies (as my friend calls them)!  #Walmart offerings in #China . . . . Super fresh! ๐Ÿ˜„

#Burger with Hair! ๐Ÿ‘จ Mmm mmm Good!

20 Aug

Went to #KFC and Michael tried this new #chicken ‘burger’ they are selling. The bread is just Food coloring. The stuff that looks like hair on top we THINK is fried pulled chicken? – He said it just tasted weird ๐Ÿ˜œ Unfortunately, they put the Mayo on TOP of the bun to hold on the fried stuff, so eating it was hilarious. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜œ Yum!

#Food Culture

30 Jun

๐Ÿ˜‚  Nice that #America gets the knife, fork, spoon ๐Ÿด on our art at the Zhengzhou #airport (To be fair – so did #Italy and #France).  None of this #chopstick thing for us! No sir!

btw – chopsticks + glass rice noodles = IMPOSSIBLE! ๐Ÿœ

#Strawberry ‘Betterfiles’

18 Jun

The name was ‘Betterfiles’ but I think it was supposed to be ‘Betterflies’ ๐Ÿ˜œ

Tastes #Divine!  Small restaurant in the new CityOn Mall in #Zhengzhou called “Strawberry Forever”  —  all the deserts are strawberry! ๐Ÿ“ 

Zhengzhou is really growing recently – the #Mall is HUGE and has #Forever21 #Zara #sephora and more.  So nice and lovely! 

Sweetie Pie, Honey #Bread

9 May

#Honeybread – A popular dessert here is Honey Bread – a really sweet bread with ice cream on top.  Slowly the ice cream melted down into the bread.  Very fun!
