For lunch I sautéd some tofu with hot sesame oil and ponzu sauce and tossed with with soba noodles and sugar snap peas from our CSA. Matt prepped the peas last night so that was easy. The tofu was from Aldi and we liked it so that’s good, tofu was one of those things that was always a pain to get but now it seems like a regular item at Aldi. Who knew such a simple sauté would be so tasty? I wanted a more substantial lunch because we didn’t have a ton of leftovers for dinner.
Matt heated up the chicken and salsa rice and added some egg fried rice style for dinner.
I finished my first project on my new loom! It’s drying on the porch after the wet setting.
We finished In the Heights. Lin-Manuel is such a cornball and all the songs sound just like the ones in Hamilton. If I was him, I’d want people to forget that.
I’m trying to clear out some of our freezer and “pantry” so today was chili in the slow cooker made with frozen cooked chicken breast from a Costco rotisserie chicken we hadn’t finished, salsa from the contest, fresh pepper and beans. It was a bit of an experiment but it was really tasty!
For lunch we had tuna sandwiches.
I’m working on my new loom! I went to a yarn store way outside of the city and picked up some supplies for weaving. They were really nice and had what I wanted.
We had to take Matt’s car to the dealership so I made our main meal for lunch. I’m entering a salsa recipe contest so I was testing out a recipe. It came out pretty good!!
I had some hammock time early in the morning before it got too hot or humid.
I started warping my new loom. It is so big! I have to finish doing it tomorrow—I got a migraine and had to take Matt to the dealership. Rough evening! We picked up pit beef sandwiches on our way home because we haven’t had them in years and we were starving.
Pancakes for brunch! Then a snack later. We spent the day organizing the living room, hanging up many pictures I finally framed (we had some for years!) and putting together my new loom which arrived early!! We were exhausted and ended up getting some chicken, cornbread and fries from a local sub shop for dinner.
We ventured out to Michaels and Target for the first time what must be going on two years. Our plan had been to grab burgers but the place had closed so we got steak pita wraps and stuffed grape leaves. They changed the grape leaf recipe on us! Now they have raisins so won’t be ordering that again.
I ordered a rigid heddle loom that should be arriving so I needed to get some supplies for a first project. Luckily Michael’s had what I wanted. I forgot what it was like to stumble across some clearance items! They had some fiber craft tools like giant pompom makers on sale for $3-5 marked down from $15-20 so I picked some up.
For dinner we heated up a variety of frozen dumplings. Yum.
