Midweek Munchies

More random things.

A while ago I spoke about how Cha Time, a bubble tea place, had soy milk options now. I had tried a strawberry milk tea with red beans, very nice. But my favourite flavour of bubble tea is taro milk tea with pearls. A lot of places have the taro already pre-mixed with cows milk, but Cha Time can mix it with the soy milk. I was excited. Then I was sad. I think maybe they didn't mix it well? It was very grainy and didn't have that wonderful cookie flavour that I associate with taro milk tea. In the future, I'll stick to my strawberry.

Popping back to those blessed frosty days of winter, oh how I miss them. And this lovely bowl of pumpkin soup topped with bacon bits.

When I am exhausted or sick or overwhelmed, instead of cooking I might get a delivery from my trusty nearby Superoll. As always, I get the Tofu Hustle, with tofu, mushrooms, and vegetables in a mushroom sauce. It never fails me.

Alpro yoghurt is here in Australia! And it isn't coconut! This is very exciting! I enjoyed this mango flavoured almond yoghurt, and they also have a strawberry almond yoghurt that was good.

Behold, this silly drink. I drank it when I was sick, a lot of the above photos were from one of the many times this year I have been sick. I had hoped it would heal me. It did not, but it was fun.

Silly Turmeric Drink

I think I've mentioned that I've been eating a lot of tofu scramble for lunch lately. This was some leftover scramble from a previous dinner, mixed with cheese sauce and served with toasted olive and thyme sourdough and avocado.

Cute Kitty Photo of the Post

Dim Sim in the catmax

Poor Dim Sim, it is still often too hot and/or there is too much smoke haze (because Australia is on fire at the moment) for her to be out in the cat max as often as she'd like. But here is a photo from one of the times she has been able to go out and enjoy the sun.


  1. So sorry you've been sick! Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties, which supposedly helps with autoimmune disorders and things like arthritis, but I don't know what effect it has on ordinary illnesses (I'm not that kind of doctor). I seem to put turmeric in everything. But I understand the desperation that makes a person try anything, no matter how weird, when truly miserable. So glad you have food delivery for those times! I need to figure out what food deliveries I can get when I may need them; I know of local restaurants with food I like but I don't know which ones deliver. Looks like I have some work to do to take care of myself.

    1. I have a bit of turmeric most days, I don't know if it has helped my pain levels or not. Well, probably not given that I am still in a lot of pain a lot of the time. Maybe I need to take it in much higher doses. Bah.

      There are only a few places near me that deliver and have vegan options, but they are so handy to know.

  2. The tofu hustle sounds so good, although I would have to add some sriracha!! Ha!
    Pretty sunbathing beauty!!

    1. Don't worry, I always have a bottle of sriracha in my fridge so people can spicy things up if they so desire.

  3. Oooh, the tofu hustle sounds perfect for a delivery meal! And yay for leftover tofu scramble!
    Dim Sim is such a cutie!

    1. I love tofu scramble so much. And leftovers are even better, because it is ready in a literal flash.
