weekend was a total cooking blitz time. I started with
which I made once before and was not too thrilled with
the swampy results. Well, a friend smuggled me another
recipe, and that turned out really well, with just enough
liquid to season the rice without swamping it. I've
updated the recipe on my site, naturally. Also, for
the first time I cooked baked
eggplant slices. Since I'd never made eggplant before
(successfully - my one previous attempt was so lame
I don't count it) I was flying blind, with no idea of
how it was supposed to taste. Well, it tastes good.
I also have some steamed
sugar snap peas, the cooking method
of which is ordinary for me, but I'd never tried sugar
snap peas. They're nice and crunchy. And finally, for
dessert I have banana bread
and a mochi.
The cooking blitz continues with tomorrow's lunch!
