Lunch (12:00 p.m.): Work has been stressing me out a bit lately … although I can’t pinpoint exactly where this gloomy feeling is coming from. It’s been non-stop since January and I think I need a vacation. I’m so excited that we have a Monday off next week. (Updated 2/16/12: OMG, I just realized that Monday is a regular work day for me! Whaaaaaat?)
When I’m busy, I purposely make the time to cook myself nice lunch. Here’s today’s menu.
A bowl of rice.
Grilled Japanese mackerel (saba) with grated daikon raddish (daikon oroshi). Kevin calls it a bait, but I love saba! It’s one of my favorite fish!
Snack (3:00 p.m.): Freshly-brewed Dunkin Donuts French vanilla coffee with chocolates.
Dinner (9:00 p.m.): Mushroom, onion, and garlic pasta (whole wheat), flavored with soy sauce. I put in a little butter for extra flavor. I don’t usually like butter (I don’t put it on bread) but the combination of soy sauce and butter is out of this world.
And a side of onion, avocado, and shrimp salad. I had a few more pieces of chocolate for dessert.
Kevin and I celebrated our non-Valentine’s Day supper at home a day early. We don’t like the Hallmark holiday so we avoid 14th like a plague … so this is our “we don’t celebrate that silly holiday” dinner.
