Menu Plan Monday for Nov. 14 – 18

First of all, let me just say, things are gonna be a little crazy around here this week.

In case you haven’t heard, Hisa and I are moving out of our apartment this Friday.

Hisa had his last day of work on Friday, so we’re cleaning, packing, throwing stuff away, and much more this week.

I have a couple dinners and a couple lunches planned this week, but nothing else.

This is why:

This is our fridge. Take note of all the empty space.

The remaining contents (from top to bottom) include: olives, plain yogurt, ground flax seed, cornmeal, the last of the apple butter, some yogurt cups, the last of the bread, some cheese, and abura-age (fried tofu thingies).

We’re trying to finish everything off before Friday rolls around, so we haven’t been buying much food. There’s also some stuff in the refrigerator door and the cupboard, but not a whole lot. Thursday morning we’ll be getting rid of all our pots and pans (not that we have that many), and that evening someone is coming to buy our gas stove (Japanese stoves are small portable things with two burners and no oven like American stoves), so Wednesday will pretty much be my last day of cooking in this apartment.

We also need to turn off our refrigerator sometime on Thursday, so the freezer can thaw out, and we can clean it.

So please pardon this week’s short and rather simple and uninteresting menu plan. I felt I should explain why so you wouldn’t think I was holding out on you. I’m moving. Internationally. Have pity.

I just noticed there’s a large blob of sauce on the side of the bowl. Opps. Bad food picture-taking me.
