For lunch I made our “big meal” for the day. Matt bought fresh dandan noodles at Hmart last week and I wanted to make dandan noodles with them (obviously) but I didn’t have all of the right ingredients. So I made some dandanish noodles with Sichuan peppercorns, homemade chili oil, ground chicken (instead of pork) etc but I didn’t have the right vinegar and my pickled greens aren’t quite ready. I subbed in the kohlrabi greens and bulbs I prepped and cooked yesterday instead. It was pretty quick to make too even though I hand-ground the peppercorns and made my own infused oil, it only took about half an hour or so? The noodles and chicken cooked really quickly.
For dinner we had fish sticks (thank you Aldi for cheap, sustainable, wild caught fish sticks) and cucumber spears with hummus.
Matt made cookies after dinner.
Then he spilled about a liter of olive oil on the kitchen floor so that was a mess! On the positive side, the floor is very clean now.
Non-food related activities:
It was warm today (upper 80s) but not humid so I got to use the hammock twice. Miraculously no one was setting off firecrackers or mowing the lawn. I got some of my book read and more came in from the library (digitally).
Watched more Black Spot on Netflix. This season is more supernaturally than the last, I think.
Listened to more of the Faded Out podcast; I still find their priorities and order for each episode a little off. I also feel like the host thinks the police are a lot more involved and competent than they actually are. Why would they interview the landlord or an ex girl friend if they weren’t around at the time of the child’s disappearance? I barely saw my landlord when I rented. He had no idea what I did or who I was.
