Dinner for One

Cooking for myself is so difficult sometimes. When Chris is not having dinner with me, I'm just too lazy to make a whole lot of efforts. A couple of weeks ago, I ended up just steaming a bit of tofu (topped it with sweet soy sauce, green onion, cilantro, and xo sauce), frozen seaweed salad (defrosted of course), and miso soup (miso paste w/ dashi extract mixed with hot water and green onion). I quite enjoyed this meal, but it's not something I would make if someone else is eating with me. Perhaps because I have to admit myself it was a bit a of strange dinner. I made more of an effort tonight though. I decided to list all the dinner for the week Monday, not knowing that Chris will have to go to work tonight. Since I already have all the ingredients ready, I stuck to the plan. I'm glad I did though.

The pork chop was marinated with grated ginger, mirin, soy sauce and rice wine. I think it would benefit with some brown sugar next time. Rice was leftover from Monday, made into fried rice with pineapple. The strange purple things in the background is a purple cauliflower I picked up at the store because it was 2 for $1. It tastes the same as the regular white cauliflower, just have the color of a red cabbage!
