For lunch we had gravlax with Norwegian flatbreads, cream cheese, capers, hard boiled eggs and red onion. I think the flatbreads are a seasonal cracker at Aldi and were great. Very crisp.
For dinner we made country style pork ribs in the slow cooker and shredded them for sandwiches on the leftover rolls from burgers. Matt made baked potatoes and coleslaw with leftover radishes, cabbage and red onion.
We watched the rest of The Wilds. We also made cornflake wreaths with coconut added.
It was quite and international day here! For lunch I made our main meal, Norwegian Plukkfisk (Patreon recipe) which was really cozy! Maximum hygge for the one of the coldest days this fall.
Then for dinner Matt made kimbap with burdock root, pickled radish, cucumber, carrot and leftover ham. So good!! It was one of those boneless whole hams so it was the perfect thickness and we could cut long strips out of it. I hope Aldi has more when I go there Wednesday. The burdock and radish have lasted forever in the fridge. Kimbap is such a great light meal. Matt also bought 100 sheets of gim back in the spring so it is good to work on that.
I ordered a loom and a ebook with videos today. I really don’t feel like sewing (I really feel like we have some electricity issues I want to have checked out. We are running a lot with Matt working from home now) and embroidery is okay but slow going and I really don’t feel like my contacts prescription is quite sharp enough. I think I at 20/25 and I’m finding myself getting tired doing fine work like that. Anyway, I ordered a frame loom and thought I’d make some free form tapestry type things. Why not?
We watched some Miss Sherlock on HBO Max. I like the food scenes. Lots of eating even when it isn’t part of the plot.
We normally do a movie and food themed marathon each year for New Years Eve. I think we are going to do end of the world/apocalypse and make rationing food. I think it will work because I don’t know if I’ll be shopping for food then like I normally go.
For lunch we just had canned soup. We are in the dredges with fresh groceries. It’s been about three weeks and the last trip involved Thanksgiving so I wasn’t able to get as much as usual due to space concerns surrounding the turkey. I’m debating going shopping next week, we have a lot in the freezer but are getting low with milk and eggs and fresh meat/produce. The virus is up since when I went but the positivity rate is like 8% vs 7% which doesn’t seem horrible and will mostly likely only go up closer to Christmas. At this point next week, it would have been two weeks post Thanksgiving so hopefully people would either be well or staying home if sick or past the real infection already stage.
It’s really difficult to know what to do! I do wonder if I’d regret not going and then really getting down to just freezer food if it’s too bad to shop in late December.
For dinner we had fried rice with leftover ham from making the soup. So good! I was starving, a can of soup is not a full lunch!
We watched more Gentleman Jack. Matt’s on call so he’s had extra work to do.
For lunch I turned the leftover macaroni salad into fake crab salad.
For dinner we had split pea soup with ham I made in the slow cooker. Very filling!
We watched Same Time, Next Year on Netflix DVD and it was a delight! Neither of us had seen it before. We also started Gentleman Jack on HBO Max. Our week trial is ending and I think we will keep it for a month.
I ran to the post office in the morning then came home and made a quick fried rice when the leftover oyster rice dressing and turkey.
For dinner Matt made schnitzel, heated up the leftover mashed potatoes and made some Swiss chard and mushrooms. The thin pork chops were sell by Friday so we had to get them done! We also cooked up the steelhead trout which also was sell by Friday. We will make trout salad for our lunch tomorrow.
We watched Good Morning Vietnam on Netflix DVD. I hadn’t seen it before.
