Folded Fried Egg Bento and Sweet Cookies
This bento contains two spiced and grilled chicken drumsticks, which are hard to see on aluminum foil though. And a fried egg, spinach namul, and tarako on brown rice. I normally fried an egg and folded in half, then dressed it with a bit of syoyu in the pan. I'm actually not a fan of normal fried eggs but love it this way because you can eat egg yolk and white at the same time. I feel it much yummier and easier to pack than a normal one. You can flavor yours as you like and make much faster than a tamagoyaki or boiled eggs. Give this a try when you are sick of tamagoyaki.
This is a kind of donburi dish, Tanin-don. Tanin means *not family* in Japanese. You know, *Oyako* of Oyako-don means family (parents and children) --- chicken and egg. As you already know, Tanindon is made with another kind of meat (pork or beef) and egg. Yes, neither pigs nor cows lay their eggs haha! If I have a chance I'll write a tanindon (and oyakodon) recipe.
As I mentioned on the last post, I pasted photos of my favorite cookie house here. They have such adorable cookies! I'm not big on cookies with super sweet icing, but they've really inspired me.
It's been a whole year since the earthquake disaster. Once again, thank you so very much for sending your thoughts at that time. I feel bad that I've been able to live as usual so far because the suffering of those affected is still lingering. I think I have to keep them in my mind on. Really feel regret that the nuclear power plant accident happened, which messed up this beautiful pure country. For all our children, we have to get back as soon as possible, safe and peaceful Tohoku, safe and peaceful Japan.
