My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 617: Fish for dessert


Back to the


Blub For once I have a pretty thoroughly Japanese bento. The main part is yakiudon made with beef & vegetables and a bit light on the noodles. I have baked purple sweet potato because it finally warmed up enough for me to get to the farmer's market. (Weather plays a big role in your shopping when you have to take the bus.) And, finall, for dessert I have taiyaki, which is a fish-shaped treat made out of waffle-like batter and stuffed with anko, AKA sweet red bean paste.

(When I post taiyaki people always ask about how I make them, so I'll answer ahead of time: with a taiyaki mold and this easy recipe. They make great party treats, I've found.)
