end of the week, another catch-all lunch!
On the top left I have some omurice.
There's two layers, and if you look between the pieces
you can see the ketchup I sandwiched in there oh so
cleverly. Going clockwise, there's simmered
shiitake mushrooms, homemade takoyaki,
baked purple sweet potato,
some Lotte cookies, and steamed breadfruit.
Have you ever made takoyaki? Once you get the hang
of it, it's easy and kind of fun, and if the idea of
eating octopus bugs you, you can substitute shrimp.
I experimented with this batch by adding a teaspoon
of baking powder to the batter. The result was lighter
& puffier takoyaki.
I don't know what kind of cookies they are. The brand
is Lotte, and they're little hamburger-shaped cookies
with a bit of chocolate inside. On the outside of them
are little images, including a character that makes
me think of a Sanrio-ized Charlie Brown. I've done some
Web research and come up with nothing. Gee, wish I'd saved
the package. Edit: they're Kancho cookies. Thanks
to those who have replied to set me straight!
