Most people think of chips, cookies, and other small desserts to be snacks. But in Korea, kimbap is considered as a snack. It's interesting because rice is usually eaten for dinner and for hearty meals, but that is not always the case. Kimbap consists of rice, strips of vegtables, egg, some type of meat (most common is beef), all rolled up in dried seaweed. It looks just like sushi rolls but without the sushi, and the seaweed is on the outside.

- If you like things spicy like I do, you want to put in about 3-4 spoons.
- It's up to you how much oil you want to put in but I put in about 2 spoonful

One of the major foods prepared and eaten during the Chuseok holiday is songpyeon (송편), a crescent-shaped rice cake, steamed, with crushed sweet pine nuts inside. The rice cake is found in many different colors but in my experience they all taste very similar.
Other foods commonly prepared are japchae (noodles), bulgogi (beef) and fruits.
Chuseok is such major holiday in Korea that is even celebrated by Korean people in the United States. I personally do not celebrate it with my family, but my family does enjoy eating seongpyun to participate in a small way.
I would love to go to Korea and experience Chuseok first hand someday!
