lunch

i was lucky enough to be able to take the day off from work today (but actually having worked those hours in the past few days...)

it was so nice to be able to eat outside, sitting in the stairs that give way to our yard.

quick pickles


for a little side for 2 people:
2 lebanese cucumbers (yep, still trying to eat all we grow!)
2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
2 dashes of togarashi (or more if you like spicy)
maldon salt

bean sprout salad


4 handfulls of sprouts
12 sweet peas, cut on a thin bias
1/2 red pepper, sliced thinly
small handfull of vietnamese basil, chopped
cilantro leaves, chopped
1 green onion, sliced thinly on the bias

1 lime, juiced
3 Tbsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp soy sauce (i prefer light)
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, microplaned

sesame seeds would have been a nice addition but i couldn't find any...
