I had a piece of leftover chicken schnitzel, so I repurposed it and made chicken tonkatsu. I reheated and recrisped the chicken in the toaster oven and reheated leftover rice with a sprinkle of five-spice powder.
I also pickled some cucumber and carrot in rice vinegar with sesame oil. Served it over shredded lettuce with tonkatsu sauce and half of a Mandarin orange (I squeezed the other half into the sauce).
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.
