lunch starts with a turkey-bacon BLT on French
bread. I baked the bread myself, of course, and this time around I'm making
it with tomato grown in my own garden! This is the first
tomato of the year for me. You can't see it, but it's
there. Oh, you may notice that the French bread is a
little bubblier-looking than usual. I tried adding a
few extra tablespoons of water, and that makes a softer
dough that rises more. I like the resulting light bread.
Then there's a package of... Spongebob Squarepants
edamame. When I saw that
in the grocery freezer I snickered. What does Spongebob
have to do with soybeans?! But, what the heck, it was
the cheapest edamame per ounce, so I bought it. On the
other side I have some Kool-Aid pickles
and a fruit
salad made with baby bananas, orange segments,
lychees, and red grapes. And, finally, I have some hoddeuk,
which is a Korean pancake stuffed with cinnamony brown
sugar and walnuts. I've packed that before, but that
was storebought, and this is homemade. And easy to make.
And gonna be part of my regular repertoire, I predict.
