And as my title says, lunch today was cooked! By me! IN my apartment! Hahaha now the reason why I'm so excited about this is because I haven't been able to do any of my own stove-top or oven cooking because our stove is a piece of (insert expletive) and doesn't work. But, my roommate and I recently discovered that if we turn on the gas and manually light the burner, we can cook! Not the safest thing to do but we make sure to turn the gas off when we're done and this way we're able to cook food. So, in my excitement I whipped up some broccoli stir-fried with the juice of half an orange, orange zest, a ton of fresh chopped ginger, and tamari. Then I grilled some tofu with hot sauce and added everything to some udon noodles. Sprinkled honey roasted almonds on top and lunch was served!
It's always more fun to eat with chopsticks :) I had some delicious juicy papaya for dessert too.
Off to run some errands before I go in to work at my other job for 7 :)
