was my first time making yakiudon.
I've heard good things about it from friends, but when
I bought a package of udon from Kroger and cooked it
according to the packaging instructions - which were
similar to ramen, right down to the flavoring package
- I was unimpressed. However, stir-frying it with good
stuff (as opposed to just boiling it and dumping in
some flavoring) makes it quite tasty. This time around
I made a seafoody batch, with shrimp, bonito flakes,
and water chestnuts. I think next time I'll try adding
beef, broccoli, and snow peas instead.
chip manjuu is something I came up with on a whim.
Really, for someone who likes chocolate as much as I
do it was only a matter of time! I made a batch of less-sweet
manju, with 1/3 cup of sugar, and then rolled dark chocolate
chips into the dough. When cooked, there was no hint
that there were chips inside; they were clean and white
on the surface just like the others. When you bite in,

As for baked
sweet plantain, steamed
broccoli, and an
pan, well, I got nothing new to say about those.
BTW, that an pan roll is from the first batch I made,
some of which I had in the freezer. I told you
the recipe makes a lot!
