meal's Mad Scientist Creation is simmered
quail eggs in a nest of steamed
broccoli. Well, the broccoli is ordinary; it's
the quail eggs that are kind of weird. I had some left
over from when I made oden, and canned quail eggs are...
not a spectacular taste sensation. So what could I do
to improve them? I had some leftover teriyaki sauce
in the fridge, so I simmered the eggs in that. The result
was quite nice! I'd try it with regular eggs, except
it'd take plenty of teriyaki for one of those.
I also have simmered shiitake mushrooms
- simmered in with the eggs, as a matter of fact - rice
with umeboshi, and
banana bread. That's the
heel of a loaf, and it is dark brown as opposed to black.
Ah, the wonderful lighting in my kitchen!
