what we ate

Day 11 Recap: Gussied Up Ramen & Phryne Fisher (3/23/20)

We sliced up and marinated the second half of the package of thin pork chops we opened on Saturday in soy sauce, mirin, ginger and garlic. Today I sauteed them, cut up some nori, made some 6 1/2 minute eggs and added some peas to a packet of Nissin RAOH tonkotsu ramen. It’s their “premium” line of instant ramen and it’s really good! It even makes the cloudy broth you find in tonkotsu ramen at restaurants. I buy it at Shoppers. It’s more expensive than their Top Ramen but still under around $3. Totally worth keeping on hand. It was a great lunch on a dreary day.

We had hot dogs a few days ago and thus opened the packages of both the hot dogs and rolls so I had them again tonight. Matt’s stomach wasn’t feeling great so he just had some saltines. Normally I wouldn’t have hot dogs after having ramen for lunch but the rolls aren’t going to last much longer (they were already slightly stale so I revived them in the oven) and I don’t feel like hot dogs keep too long out of the package either. In the long run, I don’t think it really matters. I’ll have some less sodium rich meals tomorrow.

Non-food related activities:

Marylanders have been urged to stay at home and non-essential businesses have been closed. I’m disappointed he is still allowing gatherings of 10 or more and isn’t saying in more plain language what staying at home means but it’s better than nothing!

Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears premiered on Acorn today! We loved the show and have been eagerly awaiting the movie. Her outfits were amazing as always!
