an eclectic festival of leftovers. First there are some
egg noodles. I just boiled
them, then mixed in some fillings I'd stir-fried yakiudon-style.
They include: carrots, cabbage, shiitake mushrooms,
bamboo, scallions, and squid. Yep, squid! It's a lot
better than jellyfish, let me tell you.
Next up, some steamed pork gyoza.
I was too lazy to make proper gyoza filling for them,
so I instead made up a batch of the filling you'd normally
use for steamed pork buns.
I was pleased with the result, and in fact it's flavorful
enough that I didn't need dipping sauce.
The veggie side includes and steamed
yellow squash and baked sweet
potato. And for fruit I have mango and longans (the
longans are stuffed with mango olive-style, creating
a nice blend of flavors) and tamarinds.
The tamarinds, which I shelled before packing this time,
are in the upper right corner of the left box, and don't
they look unpleasant? They look even worse in person,
but they are still tasty. Trust me.
