kinpira2 I think I'm hooked...The other night for dinner, I tried that recipe for kinpira again. This time using carrots, eggplant, red bell pepper and almonds.

I used the jakko again and since I didn't have cashews, topped the dish with the almonds, instead of cooking it with the veggies, this kept the nuts crunchy.

I really like these versions because of the addition of the nuts.

Not only that, but when you eat this with chopsticks, you need to eat kinda slowly, picking up the nuts with your chopsticks as you go along.

I didn't think Satoshi would be filled up after eating this and also served some tofu topped with kim chee, and a bowl of rice topped with some furikake...perfect dinner.

Anyway, we're off on a little vacation, I'll be off the grid and will moderate comments when I get back and since I don't have anything in my drafts, this site will be rather quiet.

Hope you have a great weekend and I look forward to seeing what you've been up to on your blogs when I get back.
