I was busy doing my sushi lessons today I forgot to get some pork mince…
This is my lunch…
Can you believe its just 550kcal ?
I can have some desserts too… later.
Hi, Maki here!
I had some soba left from yesterday, I decided to make a bento box for my dinner.
First I made japanese omelette called ‘ dashi yaki tamago.
And roasted eel with brown rice.
Many people think that japanese omelette is very hard to make but it’s actually very easy to make at home. You can also prepare few at once and freeze them. It’s ideal for bento box and you just need to place it in the bento in the morning. It will be defrosted and ready to eat by lunch. I will show you how to make it later but ingredients are here for you.
This is my mother recipe:
I have some soup for soba left so I will make a nice vegetable soup with it tomorrow morning.
Happy new year or “akemashite omedetou gozaimasu”, as we would say in Japan!
We japanese, have a habit of eating soba ( Buckwheat noodles) in the evening of the 31st of Dec just before 12 am.
I have been abroad since I was 16 years old but I always had Soba noodles at the end of the year even when I was in Mexico.
Tradition of eating soba started in 1800, and has a few meanings which my grandmother taught me;
I remember my grandmother cooked Soba for me and all my cousins ( 13 cousins in total!) every year and I always helped her to cook and serve so I could have it first.
Soba is a very light, healthy dish as well as very filling, and which has only 350 kcal per person.
I was hoping to have a healthy, positive year in 2013 when I was eating last night and also remembered of my grandmother who kept the tradition habit every year.
