こんばんは！How’s it going on this first day of December?
Today Mariko made a huge pot of Japanese curry. 🍛 The weather here has gotten cold ❄, with nighttime temperatures dropping into the 30s, so when she said it was curry nite, I was so happy! A hearty dish to warm up the body!
Kare-raisu (Curry rice) can be considered a Japanese comfort food, and I like to think of it as one of the three cold-weather staples of Japanese cuisine, the other two being Oden and Nabe. But I’d have to say curry is my favorite of the three. In fact, we enjoy it at any time, not just the winter.
In the photo, you can see we like to eat curry with medium-soft-boiled egg. 🍳 I think it’s perfect with curry. When Mariko asked if I wanted her to boil eggs to eat with the curry, I said, “Would I ever answer ‘no’ to that question?” Never!
If you haven’t had Japanese curry in a while (or ever) I think you need to eat some soon! The weather is perfect for it. 😀
