Mi Goreng w/Sambal Oelek Chicken & Pork Loin w/Leftover Gratin (day 34 recap, 4/15/20)

Today for lunch I made a packet of mi goreng and tossed it with some leftover sambal oelek chicken and topped it with a fried eggs. For dinner we had a marinated pork loin, Matt had rice because he didn’t feel great and I had the little bit of the cauliflower-potato gratin we made on Sunday . I don’t like having recipes past 3 days so I was glad to finish it off!

Tomorrow I’m planning on making the soup I was going to make today. We don’t have room in the fridge for the mushrooms thanks to the huge amount of bulky lettuce and greens we have the fridge so I’ve left the mushrooms on our (locked) enclosed porch for the last couple days. It’s not insulated and cooler than leaving them in the house. Hopefully they will be fine tomorrow. I paid extra for them and they look great so I’d hate for them to go to waste.

It’s been a full two weeks since we went grocery shopping (20 days after the last grocery shop before that) and I’m hoping to make it a couple more. I tried to buy for the month when I went and the produce delivery has been helping to vary the meals a bit.

Non-food related activities:

More Animal Crossing, of course! I listened to the Family Ghosts podcast while I played.

We watched Little Fires Everywhere on Hulu. I feel like everyone is less likeable than they were in the book.

I downloaded a bunch of library books and some ARCs today so I want to get some reading done. I’ve only read 8 books so far this month. I haven’t had too many books this month that I really liked. I read half of about 3 more books and then gave up.
