Re: Today I Made:

This week I made vegan tteokbokki. It's not very authentic, in that it's missing all the fish bits and I put in crap tons of vegetables, because, well, I just really like them. Nonetheless, I find the end result tasty. :)

Re: Today I Made:

Made a bunch of green curry and also a roasted vegetable frittata with fake sausage in. In doing so, I have pretty much entirely cleaned out my fridge - I have literally nothing in my veggie drawer right now, and aside from condiments I think I have a small amount of cheese and about three eggs.
