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!
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.
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!
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!
An actual outing! The conservatory had their annual spring flower show with limited timed entry so we went to that and then went to H Mart. The flowers were pretty! It’s been so long since we’ve been on that part of town!
H Mart is way in the county but well west of us so it was actually a little quicker to get there from the conservatory than from our house.
We had been trying to clear space in the freezer so we could buy dumplings. We bought like 6 bags! It’s been a long time since we’ve had dumplings and it’s such an easy snack or meal. We also bought these wild looking “corn dogs” with fish sausage to try.
For lunch we picked up sushi from the sushi stand in the store. It was pretty good! I miss sushi!
Then for dinner Mart fried up some flounder we had in the freezer and served it with some pickled radish from the prepared section of H Mart. So good!
Matt has a lot of vacation days so took some this week to make a long weekend.
He ran out to get some food at the local Italian market and picked up sandwiches there for lunch.
For dinner we had arranged for a fancy (and $$) meal kit from Zahav in Philadelphia for a belated anniversary/vacation treat. It was their whole lamb dinner with sides and dessert that we had in person a few years ago. Unfortunately they subbed in a dessert we didn’t want and wouldn’t have ordered had we known and some of the sides were short but it was delicious. The lamb reheated nicely, we even managed tahdig with the rice! It we have plenty left for at least one more meal. Maybe two more! We only opened 3 of the sides so we have more to explore.
We watched The Debut and Marty on Netflix DVD. We had never seen Marty. It always reminds me of the quiz show scandal whistleblower who loved Marty and was forced to give the wrong answer of On the Waterfront. The Debut was as fun as I remembered and reminded me of the grad parties I went to back then. The food looked so good. I can’t wait to go back to our fave Filipino restaurant one day.
