you believe I still had some leftover Thanksgiving turkey?
My freezer is truly a cornucopia of wonders. With
this treasure I made mini-turkey salad sandwiches
on steamed buns. I made
the steamed buns last night because someone reported
having problems with the recipe, and the best way to
test a recipe is by making it. (The verdict: the buns
are good, but I'm going to tweak the recipe after a
little more experimentation.)
Among the tiny sammitches are flavored
lotus slices, in this case flavored with niku-jyaga
broth, and imo kenpi, which are sweet potato sticks.
Sweet sweet potato chips; they're sugarier
than I expected when I bought them. On the other side
we have a side order of déjà vu: mochi,
takenoko no sato, and fruit
salad with apple, tangerine, grapes, and lychees.
