My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 418: The other white meat


Back to the


Chicken & Rice Nuggets The fuzzy-looking substance in the lower left of this lunch is not just rice, but pearl meatballs - steamed, rice-covered meatballs - made with chicken. Technically pearl meatballs should be made with pork, and I've substituted beef. I'd planned to use beef this time as well, but then I found out that what I'd defrosted was actually ground chicken. Oh well! So I made the meatballs, and the meat mix was a bit softer than usual, so the meatballs ended up kind of flattened and weird instead of nice round balls. But, what they heck, they taste great!

And I have light-fried plantain chips, the colors of which I quite like, and the taste ain't bad either. And takoyaki and edamame out of my freezer, bulla out of my fridge, and rice crackers outta my cupboard.

Wanna talk about it?
