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 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!

Day 396: Mortadella

For lunch we had mortadella sandwiches made with meat Matt picked up Thursday.

For dinner we both had leftover lamb and three new side dishes from the Zahav kit. Goodies from the Korean bakery we went to yesterday. It was a very international day of food!

Matt did our taxes! Looks like we are getting a refund, thankfully!

Day 391: Rockfish

For lunch I had the rest of the lamb and some leftover eggplant. Matt had some soup.

For dinner I made some (previously frozen) rockfish. I really want to clear out our freezer! I really stocked it up in case of illness or high rates but now we are waiting for our second shots and we want to go to H Mart so might as well use it up. Rockfish wasn’t my favorite of the frozen fish. It was okay but I’m not sure if I’m going to get it again. Fresh and local rockfish has spoiled me. We had leftover lemon potatoes and kolokithokeftedes on the side.

Finished a tiny weaving mostly to get it off the loom.

We watched Brokenwood and the last Bloodland on Acorn.

Day 387: Ramen & Salad

For lunch I had leftover tuna/bean salad and Matt had some canned soup.

He doesn’t feel great so he had chicken and rice for dinner and I made myself some fancy ramen with frozen mixed CB seafood and shredded cabbage. And some popcorn.

Great Pottery Throwdown is back! We started that and finished Purple Noon which was sort of slow. It sounds like a mash up of Under a Cherry Moon and Purple Rain but sadly was not.

Day 385: Pesto

I had a corned beef scramble with the tiny bit of beef that was leftover for lunch.

For dinner the plan was ravioli with mushrooms but Matt didn’t feel well and the ravioli was moldy?! I guess the package got punctuated or something? So I tossed some regular pasta with jarred pesto, broccoli and mushrooms.

I’m teaching myself a new technique for weaving and we watched more Briarpatch. I’m not surprised it was was canceled! It’s oddly flat.

I had a last minute Whole Foods order delivered with some bland food for Matt for tomorrow and some veggies.

Day 383: Hominy, Grilled Cheese & Lamb

For breakfast we had hominy and breakfast sausages. It has to be brown and serve for this! An old school Baltimore favorite.

Then very late we had grilled cheese and pickles. The bread was a loaf from Costco that was already a little stale but fine for grilled cheese! We used cheddar and gruyere.

For dinner I made an anchovy fennel potato dish and we heated up the leftover lamb. Good and simple!

I had a bit of a headache but did finish some weaving while watching Great British Menu.

Day 382: Lobster Salad

Today we went to pick up a Hoosier cabinet I found on Facebook outside of the city. It was weird talking to a stranger! It was a very peppy retired man who told me he was vaccinated. The new small talk! Unfortunately the whole thing didn’t fit in my car (or half in Matt’s like we hoped) so we had to go back. It looks cute in place!

For lunch we made lobster salad with the leftover lobster tails. So fancy! I got them at Costco so it was a big pack of them so it made a lot of salad.

Then for dinner we went in the opposite direction and had leftover rotisserie chicken and mushrooms over mi goreng. High-low.

We watched a movie about the 1970 Miss World completion which wasn’t bad (Misbehavior, Netflix DVD) but a little flat.
