Monday - Hot and sunny
A good day.
I got up early this morning and had some iced tea. I relaxed and tried very hard to keep my eyes open during my show. I didn’t quite manage. I read blogs and I got ready for my workout. I did a two mile video today and enjoyed it. It seemed almost…dare I say it-easy!
In the afternoon I watched Penny Dreadful and then took a shower.
I decided to go out, so I bicycled off to the post office to check for a specific Gotochi card, but I couldn’t find it. Sigh. I biked off to the drugstore and got myself some necessities for the apartment like aluminum foil, mints and panko. I biked home again and had a very, very late lunch.
Around 5 pm I was just going to the kitchen to get started on dinner prep when I got a call from F. He was in Yonezawa and wouldn’t be back until close to 8:00pm. Oh no! I cleaned up the kitchen anyway as it needed it, and then decided what I’d be cooking for dinner tonight.
We had some chicken in the fridge, so I coated it in a herb mix from the store and let it sit in the bag for a couple of hours. I hemmed and hawed about cooking broccoli as I was also going to cook corn on the cob and wasn’t sure if I could do both. Guess what? I could!
When F called a couple of hours later to say he was back in Tsuruoka, I kicked things into higher gear. I prepped the broccoli for the microwave, I started to heat up the water for the corn and I got the chicken out of the fridge to come to room temperature.
F finally came home and it was about 15 minutes later that everything was done. We had a pretty nice meal. The corn was good, I enjoyed it a lot, and the broccoli turned out well too. The chicken was yummy and I even have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
We had a fairly quiet evening, except F watched some TV. It was Japanese, but it wasn’t bad Japanese for a change, so no problem really. I watched Law & Order at midnight.
I’m going to have a fairly busy day tomorrow I think. I’m planning to make some buns for dinner and I’m planning to make tuna burgers again. I think I’ll make them smaller than last time, hopefully they’ll fit into the buns I plan to make! I do hope it is a little cooler in the apartment or the oven might overheat us. Come back later and find out what is new with me. Until tomorrow….
