What a sweet and poignant essay about your mom and what we all took for granted until the pandemic--the ability to leisurely pick our produce and do mundane tasks like grocery shopping.

It looks like even without her trip to H Mart, she can still prepare a delicious lunch. Is that a simpler home version of bibim naengmyun? I'm not Korean, but I love ordering bibim naengmyun on a hot summer day.
