look at this tree being all xmas af.
so yes. monday i ran some errands for the first time since the snowstorm. i wasn't particularly interested in the crushed ice sale tho. not at the moment.
in general, the sidewalks are clear! i know this is because of the city ordinance/fines for not clearing but, damn, it is nice to not have to worry *quite* so much about falling when you have places to be.
as you might expect, the l is crowded these days. lookit how cold the platform is in this picture and you'll understand why. haha brrr
got some mochi yesterday!! mango filling, not anko which means i'm not the only one eating them. XD
and for dinner, i heated up some gyoza
and FINALLY made some tantanmen!! (i had been craving it for a bout a week.)
it was quite good, if i say so myself! here's the recipe if you'd like to make some too.
