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.
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.
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!
