The absence of chopsticks or a chopstick rest is intentional.

I imagine you'd need a knife though, unless you're doing it caveman (or cavewoman to be precise) style!

 Don’t be such a spoilsport!   Leaves something to everyone’s imagination.😂

Linguine with clams steamed in Shaoxing wine, with garlic, ginger and two types of chilli.  I intended to include fermented black beans but when I got there, the cupboard was bare and I was too lazy to go out to buy some. I will remedy that tomorrow.

 

I have never run out of salt fermented black beans before in all my 23 years in China. Always a first for everything.

A Chinese restaurant that is not far away and right on Deb's way home from work, has changed hands and has a new menu. It used to be awful and if that has changed for the better, it would be a good thing. I usually get wonton and hot and sour soup when I am testing the waters of a new Chinese place. Deb likes wonton soup, so that will be her lunch tomorrow and I like the hot and sour.

The hot an sour soup was quite good with plenty of interesting UFOs of varying textures. I did add a little dash of chili oil to bump up the heat just a bit, but it was a great improvement from the previous place!.

So with you on your choice, @HungryChris.  Though I tend to need to add more rice wine vinegar.

I miss our Indian place. I would SO eat Indian tonight.

 

As it was, I snacked on Froot Loops, dry, from the box after I got home from grocery shopping. Because I've wanted them since I posted about them yesterday and, well, I got them today.

 

Tomorrow is supposed to be nasty and cold. I plan to stay home and start my holiday baking. Cranberry bread and date-maple-walnut bread.

Both Deb and I like a Klondike bar after dinner, from time to time, and we have been out for a month or more. They went on sale this week at Shoprite, so I made a list of things I also like to get there (like  Park's scrapple) and a few other items, put a cooler in the car and headed out. Of course, my favorite sushi place is right next door, so that was part of the plan as well. A spicy tuna California roll, 2 scallop, 2 uni and 2 eel sushi.

Okonomiyaki (how you like it). Today I liked it with chopped broccoli stems, cabbage, Sichuan flavoured spam and black forest bacon.

Well I think that is a given with the okonomiyaki along with that thick sweet and Worcestershire driven dark sauce.  I am not a fan.

I had a debate with myself this morning about either having breakfast before I left the house, or lunch, when I returned (I seldom do both). Lunch won the debate. Spicy chicken ramen, tree ears, sautéed sugar snaps and kimchi.

 This was from a day or so ago. It is a very tiny strip loin which I was planning on having for dinner that day. Something went wrong  with my day which I don’t even recall any more and it became lunch.   It has a miso glaze on it and I ate it with out any accompaniments.  This is a small act of rebellion on my part. Something to do with balanced meals.
