Laptop Lunches #242

Wedges of scallion pancake (panjeon), homemade dipping sauce, some cherry tomatoes, kumquats, a piece of English toffee with milk chocolate and almonds, wasabi-flavored seaweed snacks, and crispy tofu sprinkled with sliced scallion and black sesame seeds.

Word to the wise: crispy tofu needs a sauce. Always. I used the dipping sauce and wrapped them in the seaweed, but still. Must have sauce!

My internet service is terrible. It has been going in and out every flipping day. The best I can figure it out, it seems to not like cold weather, because it tends to be on when it is warmer, and go out as the temperature drops at night. So if I turn out to be intermittent for a while, blame the horror that is Comcast. (Comcast is supposed to come tomorrow to fix it. We'll see.)

An aside: making Comcast call me "Dr." is strangely satisfying.

  1. I'm a fan of sweet chili sauce on fried tofu. Though a good ponzu or plum sauce works nicely too.

    1. Thanks for the tip! I ate the leftovers with a sweet-and-sour sauce I made from random stuff in the fridge (soy sauce, ketchup, rice vinegar, and pineapple dessert topping) and it seemed to work out. Your ideas sound a little more orthodox..

  2. If you've done the work to get the degree, making the (no-so-satisfying) services call you Dr. is totally deserved.
    Another Dr.

    1. Thanks, yes! I'm still getting used to it, but "Miss" always vaguely annoyed me, anyway. It's back on, and I'm just a little more at ease with being "Dr."
