was going to title this "Fried Food, Part III,"
but something got the better of me. Or, looking at the
title this entry ended up with, the worse of me.
Today's meal includes rice noodles
cooked up yakiudon-style, with a pair of quail egg eyes.
There's edamame fresh from
my freezer. There's something new I tried last night,
cassava fritters! I found yuca (cassava) root in my
grocery store, figured I must be able to do something
with it and bought one, did some research online, and
found a Cambodian recipe for "num t'long mee
chien" - basically cassava
fritters. So I made it, and it turned out quite
good when slathered with butter. (There are actually
two fritters in the lunch box, packed warm with a lump
of butter between 'em.) Finally, there are some grapes and a green bean mochi.
The monster in my noodles reminds me of Trekkie Monster
from Avenue Q, hence the title quote. If you
know the song it's from, you are a person of exquisite
culture and taste!
