Day 406: leftovers

Took it easy today! I had mi goreng with cabbage and a fried egg and Matt had some soup.

For dinner we had leftover keema and potato/eggplant from Sunday.

Beautiful day! Spent time reading book number 88 for 2021 in the hammock and played ball with Mitzi for an hour.

Matt is going back to picking up his medication in person. It’s at a supermarket that we don’t love (we’ve bought spoiled meat from them several times) but they have a good dairy department and of course anything self stable is fine so it will nice to go back to picking up some things we can’t get at Aldi while he is there anyway.

Watched the finale of Meurtres à….

Day 405: Kimchi Fried Rice

No leftover so we both had canned soup for lunch. I wish that was just a little more filling!

It was a long time until dinner. I made a whole weaving. It was warmish out but very overcast. The dogs were out of pocket all day.

For dinner Matt made kimchi fried rice with leftover rice from kimbap for dinner.

We watched the Midsomer Murders premiere and it was not good! I hope the next one is better.

Day 404: Lamb Keema, Aloo Baingan & Take out!

We had a planned power outage and didn’t want to open the fridge and let the cold out so we picked up lunch at a local sub/pizza place. It was so good to have French fries! We haven’t had any in well over a year! They made really good chicken strips that come with cornbread for some reason. It was entirely contactless to! I’m glad they are keeping their employees extra safe.

For dinner Matt made lamb keema and aloo baingan. So tasty and filling with naan from Costco. We have a ton of leftovers too.

We watched Sound of Metal and it was so bad! How is it getting award attention? It didn’t make any sense on any level.

Day 403: “Corn Dogs” & Kimbap

For lunch we made these crazy potato wrapped fish sausage “corn dogs” we got at H Mart. They were pretty tasty but I felt like they needed a sauce. We also made some frozen dumplings.

There is a restaurant outside of the city that sells these fresh and I really want to try them if they are still open.

For dinner Matt made spam kimbap. I missed having burdock so much! It is so much better with it.

We watched The Talented Mister Ripley which Matt hadn’t seen before. We just saw Purple Noon which was based on the same book. We wanted to try watching Naan which is a Tamil-language adaptation of the American movie and the book but it wouldn’t stream correctly on Amazon. That is the worse streaming app!

Day 402: Jjapaguri & Crab Cake Sandwiches

For lunch I made what I call Parasite noodles after the movie but are really called jjapaghuri with leftover brisket from earlier in the week. So good! I threw some shredded cabbage in too.

For dinner we had crab cake sandwiches with homemade tarter sauce. I also had some cherry tomatoes, the end of some buttermilk blue cheese crumbled up and cucumbers.

In the morning I went to my dad’s and dropped off some of our groceries, there is a planned power outage on our block tomorrow and I was worried that it might go on too long for our meat and more perishable items might go bad.

Day 401: Crabcakes!

I went to Aldi for a quick trip to get some veggies and ziplocks. They have composter on sale but my store didn’t have it. Luckily my dad found it near him.

For lunch we had mi goreng with broccoli and the rest of the leftover chicken from Monday.

Matt picked up some crab meat at Costco Monday so we made crab cakes for dinner. On the side we had some Korean pancakes from H Mart and a bagged salad.

We caught up on Death in Paradise.

Day 399: Brisket

Got my second shot! It was a lot less crowded even with walk-ins. Two more weeks and we will all be fully done!

Our dogwood is blooming!

I came home and had the chicken salad we made yesterday on the leftover milk bread.

I put up brisket in the slow cooker before I left so we had that and some mustard greens tossed with egg noodles.

My arm is a little sore! We watched the latest Meurtres à… and went to bed earlyish.

Day 398: Baked Ziti

This morning Matt took my dad to get his second shot. It went okay but they wouldn’t let him go back with him this time and my dad has trouble with the tablet they have to you use to sign in. At least he doesn’t have to go back! Tomorrow I get mine and they are starting walk ins so I’m wondering how that is going to go.

I played in the yard with Mitzi and a lot of our fruit trees/bushes are blooming!

Apple, fig, serviceberry and beach plum are all blooming and our (ornamental) cherry tree is close too.

For dinner Matt made baked ziti with ricotta, rapini and mini meatballs. The meatballs were from the Italian market and made the dish a lot quicker to get together.

Matt ran in Costco to get a chicken on his way home and turned it into chicken salad for tomorrow. He also brought home some Costco sandwiches and salads for lunch so that was easy.

My appointment tomorrow is right around lunch time so I’m glad we will have something ready to eat when I get in. I don’t eat breakfast and don’t want to since there might be a line so I’ll be hungry!

We watched Zoey’s Playlist and she’s finally with Simon!

We also prepped a defrosted brisket for the slow cooker tomorrow. I do not want to have to worry about food at all this week!

Day 397: More Lamb & Tamago Sando

For lunch we made Japanese egg salad sandwiches on the milk bread we got from the bakery and the kewpie mayo we bought at H Mart. Very easy and fun! The middle egg is slightly over cooked but it was tasty!

For dinner I had the last of the Zahav meal and Matt had hot dogs on milk bread with sauerkraut lol Trying to clear out the fridge!

Tomorrow my dad gets his shot, I get mine Tuesday and Matt gets his Wednesday so I am trying to keep meals extra easy this week. I hope we don’t all get a reaction!

We watched the Great British Menu. The WWII banquet was really cute. Another show where the contestants cry a lot. So much for the British having a stiff upper lip!
