My Lunch Can Beat Up Your Lunch!

Lunch Box 523: Broccoli beef


Back to the


Hi there. Sorry, I couldn't think of anything clever to put here. How are you? I likes me some beef & broccoli stir-fry, which is why I packed it for lunch. Nice how that works out, isn't it? In fact, a lot of the things I cook just happen to be things I also like to eat. Among them are rice, simmered shiitake mushrooms, baked purple sweet potato, and an manjuu.

An manjuu are steamed sweetened things, somewhere between bread and cake, with anko (sweet red bean paste) in the center. Out of the last batch I made I brought most of it to a get-together with some friends. They compared them to fig newtons. Now that took me by surprise.

Wanna talk about it?
