Oops. I found this in my cupboard. It had an expiration date of 9/22.



According to its ingredients list, the stuff in its vinegar pack includes carrots, lotus root, bamboo shoot, and rehydrated shavings of a gourd called kanpyou. I added: julienne of egg and cucumber, extra shiitake mushrooms reconstituted in soy+mirin, some chopped shrimp, and extra nori seaweed and toasted white sesame seeds.

My bento box
1. chirashi zushi, bottle of soy sauce
2. kombu dashi, with wakame and green onion
3. tofu topped with kimchee & korean kalbe pork
4. senbei rice crackers
5. hot green tea



My preference for sushi rice is freezing it, thawing slowly or at low microwave power. Chirashi, trash, is great for bento lunches. I can eat a gallon of it. The round of tofu was pan-fried with a thin coat of kinako, or soy bean flour. The chopped kimchee is tossed with sesame oil. Korean kalbe is usually for beef short ribs, but I really like it for lean sections of pork shoulder. What can I say, I love my senbei crackers.

I did find Salmon, I guess I could have gotten away with that. Thanks, Damien and that's a great looking fish!

arigato, my nihongo is going slowly. I have to keep looking everything up.

I love your Bento lists, I can follow them like recipes. That one looks really good.

I was gifted some mung bean noodles...I was thinking some chicken with a mandarin orange sauce and diced steamed veggies.

Darn--PF, wish you'd posted this while I was still in MN--I could've sent you some of the surplus cans of mandarin oranges my father collects...and, I've held off chicken wrangling today thinking you might show up to help.

I like being focused and ultra-aggressive with my fishing, but I've also been known to relax in a mid-to-late-summer chair, soak some sun without a shirt, soak a corn kernel on a tiny hook, to read a Sunday paper and sci-fi paperback. The resulting epic fight with a 20-pound carp on 4-pound fishing line stops joggers at the park. I have no idea what to do with such a fish, so I land it and let it go. Re-bait and read.

If I had your same 11-year-old experience, I'd not doubt swear off the sport. Yikes, you musta been freaking! I bet your Dad still feels guilty about it.

I have two boxes of canned mandarins, i get them at Costco and since both of us eat them a can at a time... As for chicken wrangling, I would have had to walk, Shrek had the car today so he could go pretend to be in a band.

The reading part sounds perfect. My Dad had decided that trip that he would no longer bait our hooks, so he handed me the worm to skewer and then I went to cast and the wind caught it. So I was already squeemed to handle and hook the worm... I can still see it squirming there on my face...that was 40 years ago.

If I fished without my shirt, I'd be arrested.
