I made cafeteria rolls I
was in an experiment-y mood. One thing that occurred
to me was that I could bake hot dogs into their own
buns. How wonderfully clever! So I microwaved
a hot dog, pressed the grease off of it, cut it into
thirds, and wrapped them in some of the dough. As you
can see, the dough split along the seam on two of them,
but that adds to the hot-dog-in-bun look. They
were nice and tasty, just like I'd hoped. Only afterward
did I realize that, in my brilliance, I'd invented...
pigs in blankets.
The sushi features a new ingredient: kampyo. That
is dried gourd, which looks like something you'd use
to tie up a large package before mailing it. You
have to soak it, and crumple it, and boil it, and season
it, and then it becomes something worth eating. The
larger rolls have smoked salmon and kampyo, and the
smaller ones are simple kampyo-maki.
And up top is baby corn right out of the can to go
with the mini hot dogs, and a clementine orange.
