Day 99: Jajangmyeon & Chicken Tenders

For lunch I made some packets of jajangmyeon Matt bought at H-Mart. They didn’t have the fresh noodles so he got this instead of us making our own from scratch. It was pretty good! We had one pork chop left from the 3 we had for dinner last night (I saved it without the sauce) so I diced that up and tossed it in.

I prepped mustard greens to pickle tomorrow and left them to dry on the enclosed porch.

For dinner I made chicken tenders. I missed the really fluffy battered kind we get at one restaurant so I tried to make a lemon pepper version. It turned out great! The physical piece of chicken seemed to greatly expand when it was frying (??) because the final pieces were huge despite the chicken tenderloin (when raw) being rather narrow and only about the length of my hand when I took them out of the package. I don’t really understand what happened but I don’t normally fry large pieces of chicken breast or boneless meat too often. We also tried Aldi brand tots (not bad, maybe needed an extra minute in the oven) and a bagged salad. Since I’m making so much food so often I really need to have some meals with only one labor intensive part to it. Since the chicken was freakishly big once cooked, we have some leftover.

Hogan has opened the state (and our mayor, the city) to basically 50% capacity everywhere despite he sharing that he personally, with his health issues, doesn’t feel comfortable dining in at a restaurant. Of course he thinks it’s fine if you have those same conditions and work there! People really can’t think past their own selves. Like how Trump hate germs and illness and no one is allowed near him with a cough but it’s all fine if we get a virus and die.

Non-food related activities:

We watched Greta on DVD (Netflix) which seemed like two movies stitched together. I wonder if there was some drama during production?

Matt worked lateish and got a call during dinner so we didn’t do much.

I finished a book and started the new Vera Kelly book.
