If you consider the situation half full, then it’s zen cooking (doing without thinking). If you consider the situation half empty, then it’s making do with whatever’s on hand.

A little bit of the sea asparagus salsa verde and an opened box of pasta. Add a can of tuna.

Pasta Salad

One head of Shanghai cabbage, and a few celery stalks.

Look Funn Noodles with Vegetables

No soup or dashi, only the liquid from the can of tuna. Eaten with spicy bamboo shoots.

Chili Bamboo Shoots

The last of the pork belly (not spicy) and the last of the celery.
