Finally back to “normal life” after this short but great trip to the other extremity of Japan, namely Kume Island/久米島/ off Okinawa. A few postings and a lot of pictures will soon be featured on this blog!
The Missus used that favourite woven bento box, which was actually containing a bento when we bought it! It proved a bargain in the end!LOL
The “sushi maki” were made with ton toro/豚トロ or very soft pork slices that the Missus deep-fried in tonkatsu style before wrapping them in plain rice steamed with a piece of konbu/seaweed and eolling them into lettuce for great presentation and nutritious balance.
She added soft-boiled egg marinated in a concoction of hers and sprinkled with black sesame seeds. She completed the box with some stir-fried renkon/lotus root slices seasoned with chopped scallions, dry bonito shavings/katsuo bushi and chili pepper mix.
The salad contributed more balance, vitamins, fibers and so forth with beans, celery, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, trevise, walnuts and cheese.
For dessert and more vitamin C, benihoppe/red cheeks strwawberries from Shizuoka. We are almost at the end of their season!
Back to a healthy diet!
