kids this pic was taken at noon:
it's going to snow all night and we have blowing winds. sigh. i guess the staying snow is here to stay for a while. we don't mind though...except that when it's this cold - NO hottub. and that sucks! we get in when it snows and we catch snowflakes on our tongues - and laugh together - but when it's this windy - the hottub is a no-go.
my man got me some presents when he was in town. he knows i love red and black dishes but he got these for a dollar each at the dollar store.
and they are great presentation dishes for sure. i used one up for some yummy fried rice:
he finally found some crisp baby bok-choi so i made bok-choi fried rice with some delicious cherries and kimchi on the side - yummeh! if you can believe it - we had that for breakfast! i couldn't wait to dive into that bok-choi - i looooooove bok-choi and we don't get it very often.
he also went to the one asian store in our city and picked up a ton of sesame oil, fish sauce, soya sauce and soya bean paste to add to our preps. so of course we had to have a plain miso soup! i make the miso by first boiling 2 cups of water and 2/3 of a sheet of nori. then i add 1 and 1/2 a tablespoons of soya bean paste. with some sushi and dipping sauce. deelish!
then we did jobs around the house and yard to get ready for this storm and then we did a fashion show. i love when he goes into town and gets a pile of preps to add to our already-well stocked pantry. and he loves taking the big bins down to the kitchen and putting on the fashion show. we've added 3 months of cat food to our preps, tons of soya bean paste, sesame oil, soya sauce, fish sauce, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, dried fruit, all kinds of nuts and a whole pile of other stuff that will add another 6 months onto our almost 3yrs worth of preps. woohoo!
and remember he got me those awesome mussels from The Fish Guy? i had some more of those on one of my new fancy plates.
he'll be busy snowploughing tomorrow...and i'll be busy making him food. he wants chicken curry tomorrow and begged that we not have soya sauce and wasabi for a few days. he doesn't read my posts so little does he know that i am jammin' for some tempura and japchae....both of which involve soya and wasabi - bahahahahah! but i will make him some delicious curry for supper.
