My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 70: Insert clever title here


Back to the


Messy! The main item here is yakiudon, which I made with finely sliced carrots and scallions, dice-sized tofu cubes, and shiitake mushrooms. This time around I sliced the mushrooms into fairly small pieces, which I think improved the flavor.

With this is edamame, inarizushi (getting rid of the last of the package I bought at Kroger!) and kashiwa-mochi. That last one is a very sweet, chewy rice cake with anko in the center and wrapped in an oak leaf. I bought this from an Asian grocery store, leaf and all. Maybe one day I'll post a recipe, but the idea of scouting for oak leaves is a bit daunting. You never know what's been crawling over them, y'know.

Wanna talk about it?
