“Pork Curry” Cedar Park, 2019

Tonight we had Japanese curry カレーライス, made with pork. But what made it special was that this recipe is a favorite of Mariko’s friend, and includes plenty of fresh puréed apples. The sweetness tasted great, but I had to add a Serrano pepper (not pictured) from the garden to my curry to bring up the heat level to my liking. 🌶️ 🔥 😄

Now that the weather is changing, it’s time for our favorite Japanese cool-weather foods: curry, oden, and nabé. Those are good anytime, but especially welcome in the colder months.

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Today Mariko and Bay returned from their vacation in New York City, and on the way home from the airport, Mariko said she wanted to make “quick curry”. 🍛 Of course, I thought it was a great idea, especially after eating bachelor meals for the past week. Well, Mariko’s “quick curry” tonight was amazing! Thinly-sliced beef, onion, carrot, and egg made a hearty and filling meal. What a way to celebrate returning home. 😌

I hope you had a nice day!

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Yay, it’s curry nite at our house! This time it was beef curry with onion, carrots, and jalapeños. And of course, we had egg with it as is our custom. 😆 And tonight’s eggs had such a beautiful golden color to the yolk. Everything was yummy.

Koa is participating in the Austin Youth Orchestra this year, so he had rehearsal this evening. But before he left, he had to have his curry:

こんばんは。As you can see from the photo above, it’s curry nite at the Fujimoto house! Tonight’s curry was just a “basic” curry as my wife calls it. It had potatoes and sliced beef, a mild spiciness, but served over hot rice, it really warms you up! 🍛

But today was actually very warm – the upper 70s in fact! So, this evening I felt right at home wearing my Birkenstock sandals out and about. However, this warm weather only lasts a few more hours as a cold front is hitting us overnight and temperatures will drop 40 degrees. Brrrr! 🌬

I hope you had a nice day!
