It's a nice Autumn day! A bit chilly this morning though. The town is colored over with ginkgo yellow and other red/orange leaves. It's a real bummer I'm always driving when I can see such a beautiful streets. I can never take pictures of them. Meanwhile, it looks like the beautiful season ends soon... Yuppi doesn't need bento today as she has a cooking class at school. They call in a soba instructor for the class and will be making soba noodles for lunch themselves. I'm jealous! I wish I could join it. By the way, she requested chicken karaage yesterday. Actually she was a bit unhappy with the mock karaage (that I mentioned in the last post the other day) lol! Because chicken karaage is her always-favorite. I liked the mock one better than real one though! So I had to make tons of *real* chicken karaage last night. I saved some of the seasoned chicken for bento before powdering and frying it. I had seasoned it with syoyu, grated ginger and garlic powder. This morning I pan-fried it along with konnyaku slices that I had in the fridge. I topped brown rice with them, scrambled egg, umeboshi and nukazuke (homemade rice bran pickle). Then sprinkled shichimi (Japanese 7-spice powder) generously.
Okay I have to go off for the next task. Have a happy day all!
