I went to Fresh Market today and feel pretty good. Back's a tiny bit tight, but nothing too bad. Knees: terrible -- but that's the way it is.
I almost wept for joy at the bok choy -- Publix sells these big clumps of rubber and calls it "bok choy" but Fresh Market had crisp, fresh, baby bok choy -- bok choy the way it's supposed to be. They also had lemongrass, which I've been looking for for ages. I want to make Pho, which is a Vietnamese noodle soup (usually it contains meat, but I have a veggie version), but you really do need lemongrass for that and I haven't been able to find it. I also snagged a half gallon of fresh orange juice and I've already downed half of it (oops).
Dinner tonight is going to be a stir fry. I've made this teriyaki sauce before and I'm making it again because it was the best I've ever had. I'm going to press some tofu and add that along with onion, carrots, maybe a stalk of celery (I have it and it's just going to go bad), a red bell pepper, some mushrooms, scallions, my beautiful bok choy, and a head of broccolini. I have eaten broccolini many times, but I've never cooked it. Not that stir frying is all that challenging. I always feel bad for Bruce because broccoli is classic in stir fries, but I just cannot stand it, so broccolini is a good compromise (if I don't tell him, he'll probably think it's broccoli -- except he reads this blog :). Every once in a while I'll make something with broccoli in it, but I think he could eat it every day and if I never saw it again it would be fine by me.
My heating-pad burn is getting better -- it's at that annoying itching stage.
I think I have been kind to everyone I've come in contact with today. My interactions have been minimal, so it hasn't been all that challenging. :)
