    Something different, something meh

    You know, I’m okay eating the same old food every day. But that doesn’t mean I ain’t thrilled when I find something new to add to my eat-out options. Unbelievable how a box of lemongrass meehoon (rice noodles) could be cause for such excitement.

    Within earshot of this lonely pasta eater

    So this was the day before I gave up eating meat to become a short-term vegetarian. Clearly my Indian curry rice will have to wait. No problem, luckily I’m not your instant gratification kind of girl. Lately…
