Day 185: Noodles & Braised Cabbage

For lunch I had the leftover pork country ribs and zucchini tossed with some Tainan style noodles. Matt had regular noodles and cottage cheese. Our instant noodle consumption really has increased during quarantine! It is a good way to use up some odd bits of leftovers. I try to get the non-fried, lower sodium ones.

For dinner Matt baked some pork chops, braised some red cabbage and apples and made baked potatoes.

Matt planted some saffron bulbs! We think we might have already had some in the yard but now we have official ones. It’s possible they might even bloom this year! The shipment took longer than it was supposed to for various Fedex related reasons so I’m not sure if they got in the ground in time.

I love growing things that are expensive to buy in the store! We haven’t had much of a harvest of anything this year, it’s been very rainy and windy. The beach plums all split on the bush, the apples and pawpaws disappeared off the trees. Honestly, I don’t have too much energy to do anything with it anyway.

Today I stepped on a shard of plastic on the porch. I don’t think it was too deep but one more thing to worry about. I think it must have been from when we had to repack the recycling to take it in ourselves since recycling is on hiatus here.

We watched There Are No Fakes on Prime. What a bizarre story.

I read André Leon Talley’s memoir.

I’m looking forward to getting my mom’s estate moving forward. My dad asked me to help him with the day to day expenses for him which I don’t mind but it’s a lot of work on top of the estate stuff too. It’s a little overwhelming.
