Octopuscarwash's Gourmet Adventures

I live to eat. Yes, I am an Asian Jew. My favorite meal is breakfast (oatmeal in particular). I'm only in high school, so I am a complete amateur. Some of my favorite cuisines are Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Japanese and Korean. I eat so much Chinese food that it's hard to say whether I like it or not... all I know is that I don't like what most of America seems to think of as Chinese food, Panda Express. I'm a pescetarian and love coming up with my own healthy fusion food.

Wow! Gorgeous pictures girl! You really have quite a talent! And the eats look sooo good!

Just wanted to say THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH FOR THE V-DAY GIFTS!! I JUST GOT THEM TODAY!!! Even though I got it this afternoon I waited until tonight to open the package because I wanted to build up the suspense. You couldn't have picked any better gifts! I swear you must have read my mind or something because they were so perfect! How did you know? Totally like me and totally cute!! FYI I think I am pretty much IN LOVE with the cell phone charm! And I will try your granola, I just have to kick ED aside first to do it. But I will! Thank you thank you thank you!
Hope you have a great Valentine's and feel free to drop me a comment sometime to chat.
