I made some vegetarian fried rice for lunch today. I was trying to figure it how much I should make, given that it’ll only be me eating it over the next day or two. I decided to cook one cup of brown rice, thinking that I may as well make extra, so I can have half for lunch today, and then have the rest for lunch tomorrow.
But by the time I had put in all the veges, it looked like there was enough to last me for all five lunches for the work week, omg 😂 I ended up having some for dinner tonight too, so that I can finish the batch earlier rather than later in the week. I’m going to be sooo sick of fried rice by the time Wednesday or Thursday rolls around! And I’m not one of those people that can have the same dish every single day for a whole week. I need variety. So I’m gonna struggle big time!
And then to top it all off, it doesn’t even taste all that nice! 😩 And I’m stuck with at least two more meals’ worth of the damn dish. Maybe I’ll add some more salt to it, salt seems to do wonders to dishes!
I had a glass of wine with my crappy fried rice tonight, probably my first glass this year. How in the world did I get through four months of this year without having had a glass of wine?? I’ve had other drinks (even a beer, and I don’t even like beer!), but no wine. But now that I’ve broken the drought, things will probably change for the remainder of the year 😉
And then I finished off the evening with the first ever episode of Downton Abbey! It was good, I will definitely continue with this series. One of the actors from Game of Thrones is in this series. Well I guess enough characters die in that series that they have to look for other work once their GoT character gets killed off! I wouldn’t be surprised if I see more GoT actors pop up in Downton Abbey as I continue to watch theseries!
