Yeah, then I randomly glanced at my hand and went, "OH GOD I'M WHITE D:"
A little couple hours later, I was in the bathroom, looked in the mirror, and went, "...I am not supposed to be that pale, omfg." And realized my iron had tanked--it was getting low when I was in the US (I could tell because I started crunching on ice every chance I got), so I went, "OK, IRON TIME."
I made the kimchee pork I told y'all about before, but added a side dish: spinach-tofu stir fry with pork.
Yes, two meat dishes. MY IRON OH GOD.
mirin (sweet rice cooking wine)
sesame oil (optional)
sesame seeds (optional)
Throw the ground pork into a wok or frying pan and brown. While it's browning, wash and chop up your spinach.
Pour in some mirin. Don't add too much, or else it gets watery.
Add a tea spoon of miso.
While that's cooking, chop up the mushrooms and toss them in. Stir.
Cube the tofu and toss (or, in my case, drop as you slice it because my hand is not big enough for this shit) in the pan.
Add soy sauce, same warning as with the mirin.
Add a dash of sesame oil, and another spoonful of miso paste.
Add some sesame seeds.
Stir some more, done!
I was a little surprised at how well this came out, since it was my first time doing it, and I'll be doing it more when my iron is tanking, because between the pork, the spinach, and the tofu, my body is probably going to be a lot happier in a bit than it is now.
So I was feeling pretty bleeeeh today, and run-down, and chalked it up to stress and still being a wee bit jetlagged.
