fuzzy-looking substance in the lower left of this lunch
is not just rice, but pearl
meatballs - steamed, rice-covered meatballs
- made with chicken. Technically pearl meatballs
should be made with pork, and I've substituted beef.
I'd planned to use beef this time as well, but then
I found out that what I'd defrosted was actually ground
chicken. Oh well! So I made the meatballs, and the meat
mix was a bit softer than usual, so the meatballs ended
up kind of flattened and weird instead of nice round
balls. But, what they heck, they taste great!
And I have light-fried
plantain chips, the colors of which I quite like,
and the taste ain't bad either. And takoyaki
and edamame out of my freezer,
bulla out of my fridge, and rice crackers outta my cupboard.
