finally got home with enough time and energy to try
a new recipe I've had my eye on! That recipe is ohitashi,
AKA boiled, soy-soaked spinach leaves formed into tight
little maki-like cylinders. I made it, and it was good,
and, good grief, it is filling! Those four little
inch-tall pieces contain half a pound of pre-cooked
spinach. This will make up for my recent green-vegetable-lacking
On the right I have a yaki onigiri
made with omurice filling.
I was in a mood to use what I had on hand, and chicken
fried rice is good in any case. Then there are some
crab rangoons straight
out of the freezer, and blueberry
mochi. The little red box is a container of mayonnaise,
because to me spinach simply tastes wrong without mayo.
