Beef Kimchi

Monday, April 24
I had an evening shift today. I usually go back to bed after making J's bento but I was awake and felt good. So I finished dishes early and went to the North park. It was such a nice way to start the new week.

Beef Kimchi and Garlic Chive Rice: The beef was for stew. So I stir-fried it with core of pineapple. I've heard that enzyme in pineapple helps to tenderize meat. I think it worked pretty good.

I didn't sleep well last night and I was very tired in the morning. J asked me about dinner before leaving for work. I was like, "Whatever. I am not gonna cook". Then he suggested Nicky's. They just opened the new location in the North Hills. Their food was good as usual. My Friday was good!

Glass Noodle Salad: No carbs ... Seriously I have to go on a diet before summer comes.

It's still Wednesday. But I slept in because I had an evening shift today. I bought pork neck bones at Wholey's on the other day and made feijoada for J' dinner. Pork neck bones are inexpensive and makes good broth. It's gonna be my lunch tomorrow.
