been a while since I made salmon
saka-mushi. It still is, as I didn't have salmon,
but the tilapia I substituted tastes just fine. Basically,
this is fish and mushrooms and spring onions and carrots
and snow peas, all steamed together in a tinfoil package
until they're nice and juicy. Up above it I have avocado
maki and, joy of joys, baked purple sweet potato.
However, the market only had these skinny little things.
"They're taking the babies!" I thought when
I saw them. But I still got a few because I've been
suffering from purple potato withdrawal.
On the other side I have a mandarin orange,
strawberries, a few cherries, and a dried persimmon,
which is more or less a persimmon that's been raisined, but
instead of wrinkling up it is squashed into a flat
ring. And I have a slice of pound
cake made from a recipe my sister gave me. It's
awesome, and easy to make if you have an electric mixer.
If, like me, you don't, your arm will get a workout.
