Going camping in Lake George, NY was a staple of my childhood, and in 2019 my family decided we would go back. My boyfriend, still in culinary school at the time, cooked up a stir fry I’ll never forget- so here it is! Served best with a deck of UNO cards.

Octopus (JJukkumi) is a signature Korean food which is spicy and sweet. When you mix all the seasonal vegetables, kimchi, tender and chewy JJukkumi (octopus) with hot served rice, you will literally lose yourself, cry out and gobble happily.Lucky for me, there is a famous JJukkumi Stir-fry restaurant just beneath my apartment back home. Since it is a little too much for weekday dinners, me and my partner save this great food only for those GRAND moments. Thus delicious Jukkumi became a memory which connects my favorite person in this world with all those happy moments in my life.

As a child, my father had Friday's off from work. In the morning, he would put on a big pot of pinto beans that we would eat together for lunch. I would sit at the table and play with my toy animals and use uncooked beans as ‘feed.’ We always had fresh tortillas for scooping and my dad would shred cheese for us to put on top. This is one of my favorite memories growing up! My mom would then turn the leftover beans into refried beans for other meals over the next few days.
As a vegetarian, beans are a major part of my diet. When I got a dutch oven as a gift last year, I looked for different ways to use it. Discovering that I could cook dried beans in the oven without pre-soaking was a revelation! They're so much tastier than canned, and it's so easy. Beans rule!
Since I can remember, my family has enjoyed black eyed peas and other savory side dishes on New Year's Day to symbolize the good luck and fortune we want to invite into our new year. This illustration depicts our recipe (with a few modern updates) and shows a family enjoying the tradition. As I was finalizing this illustration I found some old stationery my late mother had written some recipes on. It was such a treat to be able to include it in this drawing about family traditions.
