“Like a Kid in a Candy Store”.
I think this phrase is often overused and abused. I am sure some of us probably still get excited when surrounded by candy, and some of us probably look at the dessert section of the menu first. What has changed is that we no longer have to plead and beg to our parents to buy us candy. As mature responsible adults we buy it ourselves without restraint, overeat, feel guilty, talk about it, tweet about it and maybe even do some exercise.
Why am I talking about this? I wasn’t in a candy store today but I visit virtual candy stores everyday, your blogs. The good thing about e-candy stores is that you can see it but you can’t touch it. And since my pantry is never well stocked, I usually can’t make it. Today few ‘candies got me excited’, including okonomiyaki on with a glass. Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savoury pancake, its no candy in the conventional sense of the word. I didn’t have the ingredients to make okonomiyaki but instead settled for pajeon, the Korean version which is much less complex to make. To make pajeon, I added carrots and onions to a simple batter, shallow fried and had it with dipping sauce made with soya sauce and apple cider vinegar. Simple and delicious. We are still like kids sometimes, we want to eat what someone else ate.

We missed the first public viewing of a 16 year old McDonalds burger. When it was 12 years old the burger had barely changed. I don’t know in what condition it is today, I am sure it is still 'healthy', doing well and has many years to come.
