Just a random post on some of things I've been eating...Okahijiki (saltwort) is the thin green stuff in this photo, as I looked online for info on this, apparently this is a relative of the plant that turns into tumbleweeds....okay.
This particular plant reminded me of spinach and was mixed with other veggies and seasoned with sesame seeds, shoyu and mirin.
With Ferdinand's chocolate chiffon bread, think chocolate brioche, I made some bread pudding for our breakfast one morning. I added some chocolate chips, almonds and dried cherries.
Also at Ferdinand, I like their bbq pork sandwich.
It sort of reminds me of banh mi with a Japanese twist to it as they use an oriental spicy sauce for their pork.
Black bean burrito. Using Ellie Krieger's Black Bean Dip recipe, I wrapped two tablespoons of black bean dip, some cheese, lettuce and cilantro in a flour tortilla.
On the side I added some cherry tomatoes and olives.
At Burdigala a couple of weeks back, I enjoyed their Fava Bean and Red Bell Pepper Quiche. I was surprised at how generous they were with the fava beans. This was perfect for lunch.
On one of my walks, I could actually hear this bullfrog through the earphones of my iPhone.
They make a really low pitched sound which reminds me of belching (sorry if you were eating).
Tropicana's Seasons Best, a blend of pineapple, grapefruit, mango and papaya. Super refreshing.
Mariage Freres' Summer Snow, a flavored tea. Red and black berry with a hint of lemon, this one smells like Japanese bubble gum.
A women's magazine (Hanako) paired up with Ohayo, a beverage company and came out with this smoothie. Only 33% fruit and the 2nd ingredient in the list is sugar (boo!) but I loved all the bits of fruit (strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, peach and apple)
Made my own boba coffee. Iced coffee with a couple tablespoons of sweetened coconut milk (lite) and a heaping spoonful of colorful tapioca...yum!
A variation on the coffee adzuki dessert I love...instead of condensed milk, I used sweetened coconut milk (lite)....yum!(again!)
I thought the gradation was neat. Satoshi really liked the taste of this too.
Hope you are having a great week, we had rain for 2 days straight....and now we have gross humidity.
