some more new stuff here! I just made naan
- East Indian flatbread - for the first time, and quite
liked it, so here's a bit of that, torn into chunks
and buttered up. Below that is some omelet
with turkey bacon and mushrooms. Continuing counterclockwise,
we find zucchini &
onion stir-fry, baked
eggplant slices, and
purple imo-yokan. Imo-yokan is a jellied
sweet potato dessert, and making it is so much work
that I rarely do it, but once I got the idea of making
it with purple sweet potatoes I couldn't resist.
I had planned to pack some roe in with this meal.
I found a good recipe for broiled roe in The Joy
of Cooking - and if you can't trust those recipes,
what can you trust? - and gave it a go. And...
well, the taste wasn't bad, but the look and the texture...
I'm sorry, but it was too much for me. I threw it out
and whipped up an omelet as a replacement. Most new
recipes I try turn out well, but if you don't have a
few failures you aren't taking enough risks!
