“How can a society that exists on instant mashed potatoes, packaged cake mixes, frozen dinners, and instant cameras teach patience to its young?”

-Paul Sweeney

Let’s face it. When I get lazy, I buy cake mixes instead of making it from scratch.

All Korean traditional food recipes take a LOOONNNNGGG time to make, and it takes care and patience to make it right.

I try to exercise my patience by making Korean traditional foods, but it’s quite hard to do when my body and mind are at vacation mode :b

Oh. But let’s make one thing clear. Making cup ramen does not mean you can cook.
