I ate enough chicken to feed the 500

There is always something about me and food. Always a new adventure, a new happening in which I'm not sure exactly how the meal will play out. It's totally a "Man vs. Food" thing. Will food win this round or MAN?

My mum makes really yummy dishes with chicken. Last night she made chicken marinated in kochujang (korean red chili paste). I couldn't wait to try it! So naturally when I woke up (around 11:30 am), I decided to have some of my mum's chicken for lunch. That was a good meal- chicken, rice, clam miyukgook (seaweed soup), and dried squid for banchan. I'd show you a picture of the delish meal, but of course, I ate it before taking a pic! 

I spent the afternoon with one of my oldest friends Monica; we went shopping at the mall and then visited her mom's nail salon to get our nails done. Bright orange finger nails! Orange-red toe nails! Oh the excitement!! 

I don't get home 'til seven though, and by this point, I'm hungry, but surprisingly not famished, even though my last meal had been noon. I guess I don't know how to read my own body's hunger cues yet because I must've been a LOT hungrier than I  thought. 

I downed another normal portion of chicken teriyaki, rice, miyukgook, and dried squid. That should've been good enough, BUT my mom must have planned the death of me because she decided to FRY some chicken. How can I resist FRIED CHICKEN?! So I totally devour another complete meal of fried chicken. Sigh.

I'm full, I'm good, but something... something... is missing. Dessert! My body wants something sweet! This, I blame my ex-roomies. I used to never want sweets! NEVER! Now I seem to crave sweet things a lot. So I end up eating the rest of my double chocolate cookie crisps that I originally made for my parents. Go me -__-

Food has won the battle for today.
