spent all weekend judging auditions, which didn't leave
a lot of time for cooking. But there's always time for
noodle & veggie dishes! So here's some yakiudon-style vegetable noodles with broccoli,
snow peas, red cabbage (which looks quite bluish!),
and carrots. How's that for colorful? It's also especially
flavorful and low-calorie, because I didn't fry anything
in oil. Rather, I simmered it in some of the water I
saved from the last time I soaked shiitake mushrooms.
I had to keep adding more in, a tablespoon or two
every five or so minutes, but I really like the result.
I also have baked Japanese sweet
simmered shiitake mushrooms, and
some fresh lychees. Looks like lychees are in season
