People are still looking for their loved ones, these stories are the hardest to watch or hear about.
On a positive note, one prefecture in the disaster area has given residents bicycles that were abandoned or parked illegally. Since gasoline is so limited, they figured that getting around by bicycle would be a good means of transportation.
They asked bicycle shop owners in the area to help "fix-up" these bicycles, adding air to tires, and started giving them away.
These days we've been eating a lot of rice dishes. I especially like donburi (rice bowl dishes) (because there are less dishes to wash afterwards).
I also like using pork.
Thinly sliced pork marinated in some pre-made yakiniku sauce.
Wilt some sliced cabbage then cook the pork. Top everything with green onions.
Another donburi was inspired from kimu-taku yakimeshi.
I sauteed some whittled gobo (burdock), carrots & zucchini in sesame oil and added some pork.
When everything was coated I added some tsubozuke & kim chee.
Put over rice and top with green onions.
Fast, easy and delicious, my kind of cooking. Hope you have a good week.
