sometimes hot salty food is necessary in the blizzard aftermath...
mabo tofu, salt broiled mackerel, kyushu style tonkotsu ramen.
nice, warm and tasty, although, they were too salty & spicy for me.

tempeh bacon & avocado salad, and vegan bbq sandwich at boneshakers.

simple, real lunch at ashbox - salmon onigiri (with germinated rice), tofu salad, egg salad sandwich in close up views.
and the black sesame cheesecake. was on the dryer side, but i liked it like that.

then dinner at home :

sardine/avocado/cuke/radish toast with some sides.
i could never get sick of this!

can't get enough of kale lately. actually 2 different kinds of kale and collard greens.
it goes so well together (maybe it's the way i season the kale) with smoked tofu.

great asian potluck for chinese/korean/vietnamese (lunar) new year.
handmade dumplings were ace - i brought multigrain kale bibimbap.
(in white bowl with a big serving spoon in 3rd pic).
food was sooooo good except now i seem to have a hard time digesting starch.
ahhh getting older is so sad for that. T__T

snow day!!
i'm most bummed out that i've got a cold so i can't really enjoy this snow day
(like sledding in the park) and also that i can't bike either for a day or two
until the snow clears a bit.

but in the mean time, walk in the snow was nice!
had chicken gyro and salmon kebab, both of which were too much for me today.

multi-grain rice (including beans) with tofu & mushroom stirfry,
alongside some indian lentil stew (pre-packaged).
would've been nice with some kale or chard (or any greens),
but i was sick and just wanted some warm food.

a nice weekend mahjong day with friends.
lovely audrey baked her trademark goodies - vegan cupcake (w/orange custard fillings & chocolate frosting) along with the best frosted scones EVER!!

i've been cutting down on my dessert intake (which used to be ridiculously frequent)
so i had a bite of this supposedly "the best chocolate chip cookie in NYC" at the roasting plant.
not sure of that, but it was pretty good, so was their decaf latte.

tax & errands day is still not too bad on our bikes.
failed attempt at trying a lovely day lunch special,
we went up a block to café gitane, an old favorite,
for a small meal : endive salad with avocado & tangerine,
orange blossom waffle, with cafe creme (latte).

another avocado / brisling toast!
can't get enough of it these days, although i'm starting to have a hard time digesting starch. :/
