Lunch today was cool (temperature-wise) and simple (do I do anything else?)
Brown rice, thinly sliced cucumber, shredded carrot, scallion, crumbled tofu tossed with rice vinegar, sesame seeds, and (post-photo) sriracha.
Tasty but kinda boring (maybe?), so I thought I'd also give you a couple of my lunchtime-y rituals and surroundings - eating while reading (I know people say not to do it and to be "in yr moment" of eating, but it's a good book! And yes, I'm a big baseball fan.)
Eating while gazing across the street at Union Square Park:
I usually eat in Union Square Park or in another close, small park (pics soon??). It's no calm and quiet lunch, for sure, but it's sunshine and greenery in NYC. You can see the George Washington statue in the left side of the bottom photo, and the gorgeous ever-present construction of the city in the top.
And just for another glimpse at the stuff I see everyday, here's a bit of a bright spot on the sad walk to the train going to work in the mornings:
Somebody recently put up these statue/altar-y things, complete with candles, and I love them! One morning there was even a pad on the ground in front of the lady, as if someone were kneeling there, praying. There's also a garden box with a creche-like scene of lambs and dogs...
Anyway, I remember enjoying seeing shots of where you guys eat yr lunch - I think either Shen or someone showed their cubicle, which I thought was cute. Thank GOD (or whatever that lady statue's name is) I'm allowed an hour to wander around the city, so I thought I'd just give you a glimpse of that alongside my tofu salad.
