Left the Office…

…to a dark swirl-whirl of snow blanketing midtown east.

I ordered lunch from Spoons on 52rd Street today, a bowl steamed tofu and broccoli over brown rice with a side shoyu/sesame/green onion dressing. Sometimes nothing feels quite as nice as a cleansing lunch…but of course, I’d have to go and chase that lunch with dessert!

Also from Spoons, a soft ginger cookie. Dainty in size and darling in appearance, it was a tad too soft and light on the ginger for my preference.

And, for an afternoon pick-me-up, slices of Asian pear.

Dinner? The audit team did takeout from Little Thai Kitchen where I had a warming dish of pad see-ew. LTK is a favourite dinner spot with our audit team – dishes are always on the greasier side, but oh man, after grinding away at Excel sheets for 12 hours straight, nothing hits the spot like hot noodles! ^_^
…and a cup of thai tea to wind down for the night. The drink was a strange number, tasting as if it were sweetened with corn syrup instead of condensed milk…

P.S.
We’ll keep hush-hush the Klondike bar devoured at 8pm…along with midnight munchings of chocolate truffles and toffee from Wiseman House (more to come on the package of treats they mailed over :)

Hope you all enjoyed Tuesday!

    somehow the fact that those noodles are all greasy and what not makes me want to eat them all the more!!! also, thai food when it’s snowing just seems to me to be soooo appropriate. you know what i really want? drunken noodles.
