Musings about Japan and life as a human, a cosplayer, a minority, a music lover, an English teacher.

Cooking update!

Wow…I’m long overdue for a food update. I think my last post was back in January…

Here’s what’s been cooking for the past several months:

Chicken wrap with lettuce, mozzarella and cheddar cheese, corn, tomato and sour cream

Spaghetti with chicken and homemade white sauce

Level 3 okonomiyaki! I finally bought some appropriate toppings to improve my okonomiyaki. Includes bonito flakes, aonori, and mayonnaise

Spaghetti with onions, meat sauce, chicken and mozzarella cheese

Cheese omelette with meat sauce, hash brown and fried cinnamon apples

Pork stir-fry with broccoli, carrots, cucumbers, onions and pineapples

Chocolate-covered strawberries with sprinkles

Ramen soup with beef, wakame and egg

Fruit salad with strawberry, kiwi, peach, mandarin orange, aloe vera and nata de coco

Pork stir-fry with soba noodles topped with wakame

Omlette with chicken, cheese and mixed vegetables

Steak with green and red peppers and onions; pasta with white sauce; potato with sour cream

Scrambled egg with onions and peppers with a slice of buttered toast

Fried pork with peppers, onions and carrots over rice

Crepe with bulgogi and peppers

Spaghetti with grilled chicken, onions and peppers

My version of ‘karaagedonburi’: fried chicken (karaage) with shredded cabbage, soy sauce mixed with sugar and topped with mayonnaise over rice. I first had this at the cafeteria at Rikkyo. If you ever get a chance to visit the campus, be sure to visit the main cafeteria for lunch and try this!

Chicken doria

Ochazuke: rice topped with grilled salmon and wakame, with green tea poured over top. A must try!!

Since I’m nearing the end of my stay in Japan, I’m not sure if I’ll have any more creations, but if I do I’ll be sure to post them.
