a very uneventful new year's eve (i wasn't even aware of it until around noon -_-) - such is life with a baby! 
but m continues to make me delicious meals everyday, it can't be easy twice a day, everyday. but he's been doing it for the past 2 months since little j was born.
today's lunch - corn/clam chowder with a sandwich (roast beef and turkey, half and half).
so hearty and yummy.

finally got a chance to get some korean food at café 232 (such a warm spring-like day!).
we got spicy cod fish soup (maeuntang) and spicy squid stir fry (ojinguh bokum), which we used to get frequently before baby - but as we noted on our last few meals, they swanked up their game but the food isn't as good as before. they have been going down a slow hill for a while but this time it really crystalized for us - it isn't worth it to eat ere anymore, sadly.

 m made indian food with trader joe's ingredients - tikka masala sauce and grilled chicken, as well as naan bread. he added a bunch of csa veggies which rendered a bit of water, thinning down the sauce a bit. i still thought it was really good, comforting like stew on a cold day.

it'd been a long time since we first/last tried waza ramen (and were subsequently disappointed) and thought we might give it another try. they had lunch specials so we thought it couldn't hurt much either.
the bento box set with salmon teriyaki was a good deal at $9, and wasn't half bad. the tuna set was obviously a bit too much tuna - overall, it was just ok, especially for the price. oh well!

 mmm salad! somehow salad was so good after not having any for a long time.
salad with waffles and eggs for breakfast was a great welcome change.
thank goodness for the CSA!

m made this amazing platter with trader joe's prime rib & baby dark leafy green mix stir fry.
the steak was good but the stir fry was the star of this dinner - so savory/umami, with tartness and leafiness. and of course, mmm steak!

sweet audrey brought us french onion soup she made, complete with crouton and cheese!
sounded so comforting and good that we ate it for dinner immediately. so good!!!

finally my 6 week post partum check up came and went with a clean bill of health, we stopped to eat at hanco's for the first time since the summer - now with  the little one in tow.
we got a classic banh mi, pork vermicelli salad, and  pho, it was a bit too much to finish especially with a baby waking up from her nap whimpering, but still very happy to have eaten something different!

i finally cooked! i hadn't since baby was born - any free time went to sleep and /or eating, and occasional showering. -_-
i had a craving for dukboki - i made this quick version, full with perilla leaves and topped with cheese.
a bit soupy but it would've been perfect with crispy panfried gyoza to dip into the sauce.
still, beyond satisfying!
