planned to eat this lunch on Tuesday, but then a coworker
offered to take me out to Jason's Deli, which has a
totally rockin' salad bar. I couldn't pass that up!
So, this poor lunch waited patiently in the office fridge
Here we have a storebought steamed pork & veggie bun,
a boiled egg, some steamed
Japanese sweet potato, steamed
storebought red bean mochi, and a fruit
salad featuring apple, strawberry, and kiwi fruit.
I steamed the sweet potato because most of the
non-tiny ones I'd bought in that batch had been dry
and a bit tough. Guessing that steaming them might alleviate
those problems, I cut them into coins and did just that.
It did solve the dryness problem, but the centers were
still tough. Ah well, I could eat around that part.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to select the best
Japanese sweet potatoes?
