Day 480: Giant Sandwiches!

We drove out to Sykesville near their little historic Main Street to pick up a inkle loom from FB Marketplace and caught the tail end of a tiny parade (advertised as having 30 people plus floats) and someone getting a novelty sized check for $25,000 for fixing up historic main streets.

Then we stopped in this sandwich shop in the parking lot of a gas station and brought home sandwiches. To our surprise they were massive and they must make their own marble rye and Cuban bread. Who knew, weird little place??

And the loom lady gave me a big box of yarn, supplies and books to go with the barely used loom! Not bad for $50!

Then we got soft crabs and made them with some leftover beet mashed potatoes.

I made a little plum dessert

We watched more Candace Renoir on Acorn

Day 464: Tofu with Soba

For lunch I sautéd some tofu with hot sesame oil and ponzu sauce and tossed with with soba noodles and sugar snap peas from our CSA. Matt prepped the peas last night so that was easy. The tofu was from Aldi and we liked it so that’s good, tofu was one of those things that was always a pain to get but now it seems like a regular item at Aldi. Who knew such a simple sauté would be so tasty? I wanted a more substantial lunch because we didn’t have a ton of leftovers for dinner.

Matt heated up the chicken and salsa rice and added some egg fried rice style for dinner.

I finished my first project on my new loom! It’s drying on the porch after the wet setting.

We finished In the Heights. Lin-Manuel is such a cornball and all the songs sound just like the ones in Hamilton. If I was him, I’d want people to forget that.

Day 456: Fish Sticks

I ended up having some leftover pasta salad for lunch and posted the recipe so click the link if you are interested.

I am still trying to avoid major grocery shopping so we ended up having fish sticks for dinner and Matt had leftover pasta salad and I finished the cucumber salad from Sunday.

We watched Sorry Wrong Number (Netflix DVD) which is such an odd movie since it ends with the main character apparent death and you get the impression everything could have been avoided if she and her husband ever spoke clearly to each other.

Day 454: Chicken Again

For lunch I had some leftover lingcod and bok choy in some neoguri spicy seafood noodles.

Then we had leftover fried chicken and sides from yesterday!

Matt’s car is in the garage so fingers crossed it is fixable somewhat affordably.

I picked up some library books and signed up for the summer reading program again.

We watched the latest Whitstable Pearl on Acorn. It’s cute but I shouldn’t have read the book while it’s airing because the tweaks are confusing me.

Day 444: Quiche part 2

For lunch I had leftover gyro meat on salad.

I made a bundt cake for Matt’s birthday tomorrow.

Matt felt better so we had the quiche I made yesterday for dinner.

I also made some dip for my tinned fish Patreon subscribers.

We watched some CB Strike and High on the Hog. Love the idea of High on the Hog but the host is really awkward and the captions were strange. They weren’t accurate for the French or English. It was kind of insulting to the speaker and changed the meaning. Why did they do that?

Day 440: Noodles

For lunch I made spicy chicken meatballs and had them with these refrigerated spicy noodles from H Mart. And some bok choy from our CSA.

For dinner we had a few fish sticks and the wild rice leftovers.

We watched a new show on Acorn. The Pearl of Whitestone or something like that. Very forgettable name but the show was cute.

I had a migraine again so nothing too exciting going on.

Day 434: Crabcakes

I had to get my emissions test in the morning! It was put off for so long, I have to go back in October!

Our CSA starts up this week so I drove past the pick up place. I’m disappointed not to have delivery but hopefully it was be so good, I won’t mind picking it up! It’s only about 10 minutes from our house but it’s at a weird time- 2-6pm.

For lunch I had my favorite jjajangmyeon and Matt had some noodles and cottage cheese.

For dinner we had the leftover crab cakes and I made a chickpea, eggplant, arugula, tomato salad with tahini as a side.

We finished Ghosts on HBO Max and I tried out my new punch needle but I can’t get that vintage yarn to stay put! It’s very frustrating. I tried some sun art from a kit the library gave me and it didn’t work well. Why are the easiest things the hardest for me to do? Jell-O never sets for me either.

Day 433: Tomato Salad

I finished up a weaving today using the locker hooking method for some texture.

For lunch we split a leftover pork chop and had it with mi goreng cooked with some shredded cabbage and carrots.

For dinner I made a tomato/avocado/arugula salad. We have so many cherry tomatoes! I went a little nuts buying them recently. We had leftover pork burgers too.

Our weigela is blooming! My phone doesn’t recognize it as a word for spell check but does when I use the “look up function” ?? Anyway, it’s very pretty.

We watched Mare and I was right! I can’t wait for more. The scene with Mare and her mom in the car was hysterical.
