For anyone paying attention: yes, I’ve not been keeping this blog up to date. As usual – when I bother to I’ll migrate the rather large volume of past entries eventually. It looks like the general consensus for 2016 has been rather grim – which I’ve also not escaped. Let’s just say I’m going to […]
I guess you start to truly appreciate good quality meat when it is less convenient to come by. Lunch is pickled radish, tomato, carrot kimpira, BBQ eggplant, BBQ chicken with home made piri piri sauce and kombu no tsukudani
Oshizushi is one of the types of sushi you can make at home (either have the mold or you improvise equipment for it), and since temari sushi is far more simple in comparison it’s one of those things I’ve put on the “when I have the time” and “if I can be arsed” categories. Let’s […]
Time to cache the sunlight, pity it doesn’t warm rice balls effectively. Lunch is seafood green curry, pickled radish ‘chrysanthemums’, cucumber, runner beans with ginger & ponzu and tomato served with onigiri (kombu tsukudani, bacon and anchovy with spring onion & ginger)
Big batches of mince are handily transformed into various foodstuffs, in this case: croquettes. Lunch is beef croquettes, steamed sugar snap peas, steamed carrots dressed in ponzu & basil, pickled radish, pickled cucumber and tomato, with kombu no tsukudani for the rice
Leftovers from dinner makes lunch easy: steamed baby carrots with lime/garlic/basil rapeseed oil dressing, steamed sugar peas, pickled radish, BBQ sardines, pickled cucumber and tomato.
Back to work but it’s a mercifully short week. Chilli beef onigiri with tomato, garlic & basil runner beans, kombu no tsukudani, fried prawns, pickled cucumber, pickled ‘flower’ radish and a rare item: dessert of matcha & ginger sponge cake.
Because I felt like udon, I went a little overboard with the toppings: steamed beans, spring rolls, soft boiled egg, shredded crab stick, spring onions, simmered shiitake and garlic eggplant – The udon soup started off as a traditional vegetarian type but I couldn’t resist adding a home made chicken stock cube. Topped with nori […]
OK I can say that’s the last of the salad for now but I doubt I’d be sick of the spring rolls ever. Rice topped with smoked salmon is accompanied with garlic & anchovy eggplant, konnyaku & capsicum, steamed beans, cucumber & wakame salad and lambspring rolls
Got lazy with thinking up lunch so it’s a carbtastic selection of sushi today: smoked salmon with capsicum & gherkin pickles, spicy salmon and crabstick with cucumber maki alongside cucumber & wakame salad, takuan and inarizushi. And now, can I take a nap?
