Life has been crazy these past couple of months and I’ll get into details once I’m back in the game. Hopefully after December 17th when I’m done with school and have more time to cook, travel, eat, and write.
So, last night I was watching a bunch of reruns of No Reservations on the Travel Channel. I am a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain and absolutely love his brilliant, snarky, honest attitude. I find it quite refreshing in this day and age of dumbed down cookie cutter television programming, and I’m totally looking forward to his new show “The Layover.” I know there are some of you out there that despise the man, but whatever, I really don’t care. You should probably go run to the donut shop so you can make yourself a hamburger or something.
Anyway, I guess I missed the techniques episode, which reminded me that my cousin James still needs to learn some skills. As you may recall, James did not inherit the cooking gene from our family. I’m not too sure why the hell it didn’t happen to him, maybe it’s some sort of disability. I’m hoping that he will become a wonderful cook later on in his life, since it is mandated by the Luong family to share our culture and love of food with any future little Jamesies out there.
So, here is the No Reservations: Techniques Special that I watched last night. Hopefully my cousin and the rest of you noncookers will learn something useful and to appreciate the greatness that is Anthony Bourdain.
Here’s our engagement video I made for the family before the wedding. Of course, I still have the wedding video to make and I’m seriously procrastinating. I blame it on school, but it could be due to my severe laziness.
A new school year has begun and I do not need to set up my classroom or prepare lesson plans. It feels good, but at the same time I miss the excitement of it all. Above is a video that I made for my students last school year as a “get to know your teacher” lesson. Enjoy!
