Meal Prep Day! ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿฑ

Today I prepped my meals for the rest of the workweek. While they are pretty plain, I add a little something extra every day when I actually eat. I use Japanese sticky rice and boil my hot dogs in broth after cutting them up. They also have a little paprika in them.

When I eat, I’ll add butter, salt and pepper to the eggs, a little something extra I may find on the fridge that day (today it’s olives and hearts of palm) and furikake to the rice. I also usually like to mix a little bit of gochujang sauce with sour cream, but today it’s just mayochup (or salsa golf as we call it in Argentina) since it’s a better fit for the hearts of palm and I don’t have sour cream anyway. ๐Ÿ˜…

Furikake is THE best thing ever and I always find the cutest kinds. I’m almost out though. It really makes the rice delicious and gives the whole otherwise plain meal a very fancy touch:

Oh yeah, guess I never showed off this placemat. Normally, I keep it upstairs, but I wanted it for these photos. I use it to avoid staining my fancy gaming mats when I’m having a snack:

Today is going really well so far and I expect that before 1:00pm all my chores will be done. I hope!

Little Impromptu Get Together ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ™‚

Good morning, everyone! Our weekend ended on a lovely note. Our friend Kris invited us to dinner. I wasn’t super hungry but outings have become quite precious and I wasn’t gonna pass it up. It was him, his girlfriend (whose name I’m still trying to learn) and our friend Jessie whom we saw this weekend already.

We went to Scruby’s BBQ. I was delighted by their holiday window decorations:

These window paintings never seem to change. Now or in the 80s, even in my country, they look very similar. It’s such a nostalgic feeling.

I wanted to be myself last night. I dressed a little more like my usual self and brought Stitches for a picture. I just had fried mushrooms and stole some of Christopher’s fries. My food was actually really bland, so I didn’t eat them all. What with COVID, I didn’t want to touch any of the non-disposable sauce containers or salt and pepper shakers.

After we got home, I worked on a personal New Year’s drawing (I began it at the restaurant, since I brought my iPad with me, but I mostly finished it at home) and then opened the Evangelion Tamagotchi that Christopher got for me. It was a preorder since April, and something we definitely wanted more as a collectible/curiosity than for being a “good” Tamagotchi or anything –but it’s definitely a legit Tamagotchi with the Tamagotchi logo, and it’s official Evangelion merch.

Right now, I still have it at the embryo stage, and I’ve figured out how to do simulation training and give it energy, but I can’t seem to check its stats or do anything else… I’ll have to look into it.

Anyway, Kotoko just came to me meowing with her mouse in her mouth, like every morning. She doesn’t want food or pets. She just brings it for me every morning and then gets on with her day. I guess I should get on with mine.

See you on the next post!
