I've written about ku-cha-ne-ku-cha-ne before, well, that is basically what we did this past Sunday because it rained most of the day.
The day started out with breakfast...
Walnut toast with chocolate speculoos spread, topped with slices of banana. Yogurt with fig vanilla jam and bananas that didn't fit on the toast. Speculoos tea with milk.
There was some book reading and then I got lunch together.
Leftover pickled purple cabbage. Baby spinach, a little swiss chard and a little kale goma-ae. I used the peeler to peel a purple carrot, loved all the colors that came out from the peels! I added a little shiso and marinated everything in a little dressing. Rakkyo (pickled onions). Tamagoyaki. And musubi that I covered in blanched swiss chard leaves instead of nori. Green tea to wash everything down.
There was a nap.
Snacktime: café au lait & Big Island Candies biscotti to dip.
There was some smartphone game playing (maybe a lot)...
Dinner was a big bowl of pho (fah).
I've been wanting to use my cilantro. And since I didn't want to spend a lot for basil, I just used the rest of the shiso that I had.
Maybe not the most authentic, there was more noodles than anything, but it hit the spot and was a nice way to use some cilantro.
How was your weekend?
