Even though I didn’t do much this weekend, I feel like it flew by! Why does that always happen?
Yesterday was a perfect Sunday in terms of rest/ productivity- a good mix. I went to the gym in the morning, read my book while I ate breakfast, went out for a long walk and some produce shopping, went to TJ’s with Loren, cleaned up around my apartment, and went out to dinner at the BEST Japanese place with Nishant (houseguest/ friend) and Loren. And then I read some more. The Hours is amazing- I can’t believe I haven’t read it yet. I loooove Virginia Woolf’s work, so the book is perfect for me.
What wasn’t so great about yesterday was going through my winter sweaters and discovering moths/ larvae/ holes in some of my favorite sweaters. And having to throw them out. And pick larvae off my clothes. I did not grow up in the Northeast and had no idea moths could do such a thing. Grooooosss.
Breakfast yesterday was a big bowl of “holiday oats”. Basically, just my usual pumpkin oats with some dried cranberries on top. Festive, no?
I also made one of my favorite lunches: tuna salad with crackers and carrots. It is very simple, but definitely comfort food for me. My mom used to make us the best tuna salad- all the time. It feels like home!
I now use mayo made from olive oil- its very good!
My post-TJ run snacks included some indulgent little goodies:
These mini ice cream sandwiches are delicious and only 120 calories each! (They are also quite small). Perfect for a snack or small dessert.
I also had some watermelon and pineapple slices (I know, I know… I’m bad. Not local, not at all).
And later we went to dinner at Hibino in Brooklyn. The food here, as always, was amazing- but the service last night was really bad- way too slow. And our waitress was not so nice.
But, like I said, the food was awesome!
I got a seaweed salad which had all kinds of seaweed in it (I ate most of it- some were a little too “sea-ish” for me!) and we split an order of asparagus tempura. Yum!
And I had some “pressed sushi”. One had cooked mackarel with shisho sauce on top; the other was tuna with a bit of avocado and shisho. They were both incredible- so fresh tasting. The tuna melted in my mouth.
Even though the servie wasn’t that great, the food made up for it (and I am usually not so forgiving). Hibino is definitely my favorite sushi joint around!
