추석 잘 보내세요! (Happy Chuseok!)

Our Chuseok table

The above really translates “good time for Chuseok,” which is what my wish is for you today. Yes, today is Chuseok, which most people refer to as Korean Thanksgiving.

I detailed our family’s Chuseok celebration last year on this blog so I won’t go into a lot of detail. Sadly this year’s celebration was not as big since we had two kids in school and two parents at work. But we did come home and make a big Korean meal, including mu guk, san jeok, mandu, kimchi, rice, and my special Chuseok crescent moon Rice Krispy treats. (One day I’m going to make songpyeon, the traditional Chuseok food, but not this year.) My Korean cooking has, overall, been given a thumbs up by our exchange student, and she enjoyed our Chuseok meal, including our crescent moon “rice cakes.”

Then we played yut nori in a marathon game in which the girls finally beat the boys. But we’ve already been challenged to a rematch and this time it’s going to be a “super yut” game, according to our son, using both yut sets we have. Should be interesting! Honestly with two very competition kids playing, the husband and I almost didn’t have to do anything. Still we had a good time.
