I got all 4 pair, single vision lenses, for $67 incl shipping from Zenni Optical. I’m not affiliated with them in any way but just sharing them. I have been getting glasses from them since 2014.

While I was in town because it was getting a bit later I decided to go ahead and get some dinner. I got a steak and shrimp Hibachi from one of our local restaurants. That was my lunch + dinner.

I was running the last of my errands yesterday and other than a Dr appt at the end of the month – I don’t need to go back to town for a few weeks.

I decided I wanted an Arby’s Sandwich but didn’t check the nutrition beforehand. I ended up not having it last night so I was a bit surprised when I looked it up this morning and found it was 840 calories. Whew!

No problem. I just worked my day backwards around it but sadly it was quite dry and not very nice. I wouldn’t buy it again.

Not a fault of the recipe but of me completely… I have had the clams in the freezer for ages, I thawed them too quickly/impatiently, I didn’t cook off the wine first and I adjusted the recipe lazily…

I ate the clams, which looked beautiful, but the broth was not nice at all. I adjusted my tracking as I ate the veggies and clams out of it but didn’t eat the broth… Bleh! Again – not the recipes issue – totally on me…

๐Ÿฅข MENMA (PICKLED BAMBOO) + SPROUTS

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ MINI PREP ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿณ
https://izzycooking.com/menma

I really missed my pickled bamboo in my last Ramen Bowl so I am going to make some with the leftover bamboo and bean sprouts.

The recipe above does not have vinegar, which I added or chili oil, which I’m not adding anyway…I used the Umami Mushroom Seasoning as a replacement for the chicken bouillon called for and again the result was fantastic! Now I need to do a noodle bowl tomorrow!

โ–ช๏ธBamboo Shoots
โ–ช๏ธBean Sprouts
โ–ช๏ธSesame Oil
โ–ช๏ธTamari Soy Sauce*
โ–ช๏ธMirin*
โ–ช๏ธUmami Mushroom Seasoning*
โ–ช๏ธSugar
โ–ช๏ธRice Vinegar

YES! Not spicy or overly sour but very tasty!

๐ŸœLUOSI RICE NOODLE BOWL | ๐Ÿ“ MIXED FRUIT SALAD

DAILY MEAL HIGHLIGHTS
๐ŸŒž Good morning ๐ŸŒž gentle friends!
Let’s get this day started…

———————

I got a my late start to eating today (after 6pm to start cooking) so this was my only meal today… I had ยฝ when I made it and finished the rest later.

๐Ÿœ LUOSI RICE NOODLE BOWL
@sayweee_official Luosi Snail Rice Noodle Kit
@mwpolar Baby Corn, Straw Mushrooms
@krogerco Broccoli Florets
@sayweee_official Garlic Green Peas
@lightlife Organic Tempeh
@farmfresh (local farm) Duck Egg (yolk only)
@zrollfarms Shrimp Snack Roll
@simpletruth4u Edamame in Pods

I was also testing my theory that it was not the tempeh that created the horrible reaction a few weeks ago. I was wrong at least partially.

I was fine while eating it, but a few hours later (which is how it presented last time as well), my eye started itching and swelling. Not super bad, but noticed.

I am not allergic to soy, and I eat many soy based products but maybe there is something in the fermentation process of this specific product I am reacting to. Whatever the reason, no more for me. ๐Ÿ˜

This reaction is nowhere near as intense, probably because the last one was 2 products and a higher amount, but we’ll see what happens by tomorrow. I took some antihistamines and I feel okay so maybe this is just a small warning.

I have been reorganizing my ZAPR (Zombie Apocalypse Pantry Room ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ) to make room for my last few Weee! orders. Weee! is an online Asian and Hispanic market I get a lot of my Asian goodies from.

[Do you want to see the room when I’m done?]

I found them to be very comparable to my closest international market which is 90 minutes away and I don’t have to go anywhere.

I am not affiliated with them, I just use them. It looks like the current deal is $20 off your first order… Very nice!

https://www.sayweee.com/en

Anyway… all my goodies have been sitting in the floor in their boxes…. I started sorting that out today but then decided to rearrange the whole pantry room system because… Why not, right? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Going through everything I dug out some goodies for dinner… See the video for all the product packaging if you want more info…

I needed to use a bunch of calories so I added on little extras…

I wasn’t sure that I was going to like these noodles because I am not a huge fan of peanut butter. I like peanuts but very rarely do I like most peanut butter based sauces. It smelled very peanut buttery and so I was actually working on a Plan B in case I didn’t want to eat them.

I am extremely happy to report that not only were they okay, they were really tasty and I would definitely buy them again!
