I wanted to share with you something that will keep you warm on those chilly days. Soba.
When I lived in Hawaii, I never really liked Hello Kitty, or Kitty-chan as she is known here. But, after moving here, there is something mysterious about her that gets you hooked--and she's everywhere!
I recently found a kamaboko (steamed fishcake) made by Kibun. I think they make this for mom's who want to add something extra to their kids' bento (boxed lunches). There was also a Mickey and a Minnie kamaboko too.
After checking the maker's website, I was bummed to find out that the market I bought it at was selling it at a high price than the estimated retail price....sigh.
I cooked up some soba. Diluted 1/4 cup of pre-made soba sauce with hot water and added green onions and a dash of shichimi (Japanese 7-spice). Kind of spooky seeing so many faces looking at you, but it was a nice, light lunch.
Have a nice week!
