January 19 has been lost to history. I swear I wrote at least some of this down, but it is now missing, and once I have already uploaded something from my memory, it is gone. It wasn't a very exciting day in any case.
Breakfast: Leftover eggplant pickle; black seedy grapes; two slices of toast and butter, one with apple butter and one with apricot jam; hard-boiled egg.
Lunch (after work): Honestly, I am not sure. What turned out to be the physical and emotional disturbance of an impending migraine (more on this later) both destroyed my motivation to record things in a timely manner, and apparently impaired my memory as well. It's been a hard week.
Shopping (New Grand Mart): I bought a lot because we have a blizzard coming, and heavy snow shuts down the Washington DC area for days, sometimes (I hear) weeks. Thin-sliced ribeye, cut-up chicken legs, "simulated lobster balls," shrimp balls, toothpaste, vegetable oil, canola oil, gallon of whole milk, buttermilk, sugar, matcha green tea powder, toilet paper, a bag of tiny packets of mustard peas, bag of roasted chestnuts for snacking, chocolate chips, spicy peanuts for snacking, beef balls (the Asian kind, similar to the shrimp and lobster balls), walnuts, russet potatoes, La Yogurt individual yogurts (assorted flavors), basket coffee filters, quart of Dannon vanilla yogurt, 3 packets of fresh udon noodles, "irregular" bacon (cheap!), Guatemalan queso fresco, tofu, mild cheddar cheese, butter, bulb onions, yu choy, sugar snap peas, scallions, fresh fava beans, 2 dozen cage-free brown eggs, cilantro, four tiny forelle pears, green beans, romaine hearts, 2 mangos, 1 tomato, 1 dragon fruit (cost $7!), 1 gigantic papaya, regular bananas, little manzano bananas. $132.
