Making Rice Cakes!

I decided to take a nice little walk to the outdoor market by my place this afternoon.  It's one of my favorite things to do, especially on the weekends.  As I was walking by the rice cake store, I noticed that there were 2 women in the back, making them on a large steel table.  I've always been intrigued with the process, and have wanted to learn to make them, but have never had the chance to do it... Today was my LUCKY DAY though!   As I was standing there, outside the store, watching them add ingredients and smoosh them together with their hands, one of the ladies motioned for me to come over!  I was shocked, but super excited at the invitation.

As soon as I walked over, I stood over her shoulder and began to watch.  Before even 3 seconds passed, she motioned for me to get my hands dirty and make some along side her!  She also yelled for her 7 years old son to come over and help (and practice his English with me!)  The 4 of us made rice cakes together for at least 30 minutes!   Noah, her son, was one of the most adorable little Korean kids I've met to date. 

The rice cakes on the tray were the ones WE made! :)

Me and Noah!  

*** As a side note... She never asked me, or Noah to wash our hands before we started making them... Kinda made me think!!!  I wonder how many other places don't care about having clean hands before touching food!   eeehhhh
