Day 420: Mango Salad

I made our main meal at lunch—wild rice salad with mango and avocado and trout. So good! I had poached the trout yesterday and the rice was the par-cooked kind so it was quick to throw together.

For dinner Matt had leftover meatballs as a sandwich and I had a small quesadilla with the leftover taco filling.

We watched the last Brokenwood and it was so bad! The rest of the season was really good so I don’t know what happened. None of it made sense.

More weaving! I had a migraine this evening so didn’t do too much of anything.

Day 419: Red Beans & Rice

I had some frozen shrimp for lunch with a can of tomato noodle soup. Dinner was leftover red beans and rice. I think it was actually better the second time! More creamy!

I stopped at the supermarket to pick up some soda and some odds and ends. Do you ever have a day where you drop or break everything? That was today.

We watched Mare of Easttown and The Nevers on HBO Max and I started a weaving for my friend.

Day 418: Longsilog & Tacos

Matt made rice yesterday so he could make garlic fried rice for longsilog today! The sausages got a little brown but they were fine! I think the sweetness in them caramelizes quickly. The sausages defrosted nicely too.

Then we made tacos for dinner. It feels like it’s been a long time since we had tacos but time has no meaning. We used this beef that was labeled as “good for fajitas” but wasn’t sliced?? but was tasty and cooked up quickly.

We watched A Woman’s Face on Netflix DVD. That was an odd one. We also tried Barb and Star Go to… and it was not good. So forced, like they set out to create a cult movie. What a waste and it looked like they filmed it on the set of Jane the Virgin.

Day 417: Bacon Chicken Burgers

For lunch we had some (frozen) dumplings from H Mart. One was more of a large buckwheat wrap? It was all very good.

For dinner we grilled and made bacon chicken burgers and had them with leftover cauliflower salad. We also made some meatballs with the leftover meat (they tend to heat up better than burgers) and grilled some eggplant for a future meal. The eggplant went a little too long but I think it will be okay. Hopefully! They were beautiful eggplants.

We also tried these Cuban sandwich flavored chips. Not bad!

I made a whole weaving on a new small loom I bought on Amazon for like $13. I swear it is the same one I’ve seen people on Etsy selling for $$$. It even came with a heddle bar which was nice. My other small loom didn’t and it’s hard to practice on my bigger looms with it because it takes so much more yarn and time.

We watched Bäckström on Acorn. It is really enjoyable! I don’t know why they aren’t promoting it more. It even has a non-annoying little kid!
