I woke up today and realized the cereal box was empty. But lucky for me, i remembered that i have a pack of Natto (Fermented soybeans….and yes, it stinks!). So i made a “Nattoast” which is my own special recipe. I cut up some baguette and spread a layer of Japanese kewpie mayonnaise and spread some Natto, and sprinkle some sesame and pop it in the toaster. I know, it is very hard to imagine how this might taste…I will just say that it is an acquired taste! Rob usually stays away while i eat these. lol.
Today was our first book club meeting. As I wrote yesterday, I had to cram all the reading in for it last night, but it turns out half of the group hadn’t finish the book. But we had many good discussion on various topics over champagne and cheese, as well as yummy pan cake the host made for us, and some quiche and blueberry muffins that other members brought. It was a good time!
Then, on the way home, we stopped in Chinatown in hope of trying the new Ramen place that opened up to get a bowl of noodle, but they were closed….so we went to another new spot in Chinatown that serves Korean fare. They have Korean fried Chicken (also known as KFC :) which was really crispy and good (probably 5000 calories right here). We each had two.
We decided to not hold back and order, so we split a spicy soup with vermicelli noodles called Yook Kae Jang and Black bean sauce noodles (Jajyangmyun) which was pretty mediocre though we finished most of it :P
Once we got home, I felt like I needed to burn some calories, so I decided to clean my VERY MESSY work room where I make my collages. This is REALLY embarrassing, but to get a full effect, I think you’ll have to see the BEFORE picture of my studio…Just to defend myself, this is where i usually go thorough all my papers for my collage everyday, and because I’ve been busy btwn work and doing my TAD, i haven’t had a chance to tidy up in a while…with that being said, here is the BEFORE…
And this is AFTER. It’s still cluttered b/c I have a lot of stuff (making of a hoarder?!) but it is much more in control now.
Here is around the work table. BEFORE…
ah, i feel much better now!
