an end-of-the-week festival of little leftovers, perfect
for one of my
small compact bento boxes.
In roughly left-to-right, bottom-to-top order (because
I feel like it, that's why) we have: steamed
kabocha, a cassava
fritter, baked Japanese sweet
onion stir-fry, toasted
kabocha seeds, and some lotus chips.
Prep time was very short, as the only item I actually
cooked that day was the potato, and that took all of
8 minutes in the microwave. The lotus chips are a new
recipe, and I intended to include them in my earlier fried
festival, but I kept getting sidetracked by neat new recipes
and leftovers that needed to be put to use. before their
eviction time came.
I'm really looking forward to eating this lunch.
I love all-sorts-of-little-things meals. However, they're
only practical for me when I have a critical mass of
leftovers after a fridge-stuffing run of cooking.
