was all industrious this weekend. I cooked things. You
will see them soon. In fact, unless you avoid glancing
at that picture to the right, you will see one now.
Today's lunch features niku jyaga
which, literally translated, means "meat and potatoes."
That's a pretty good summary. Thin-sliced beef, potatoes,
onions, carrots, and peas, stir-fried and then simmered
in the usual soy-mirin-sake-sugar seasoning mix. I've
only made it twice before, and now I wonder why I waited
so long. That stuff is good, and so easy to make.
Huddled on the side, intimidated by the savory glory
of the niku jyaga, are some steamed
broccoli and a packet of bin-bin rice crackers.
Bet you can guess where I bought that last item.
