Tonight was curry nite at the Fujimoto house! When Mariko mentions in the morning that we’re having curry, I look forward to it all day – that’s how much I love the dish. And I’m sure she gets tired of me saying, “It’s curry nite!” several times during the day. 😀 But hey, curry is something to celebrate!
This time, the curry had sliced pork in it, which was delicious. A month or so ago I thinly sliced a large piece of pork using our meat slicer. It takes a while to slice a large piece of meat and requires a small amount of elbow grease, but it’s much cheaper than buying pre-sliced pork from H-Mart. We portion out the sliced pork into 200-gram stacks, then freeze for later use. It’s a nice system!
We had a yummy salmon donburi for dinner this evening, but I though the simple salad we had was a stand-out. It was lettuce with a sesame oil and salt dressing, and was so tasty. The simplicity was refreshing! I loved it. I could have gone for another plate, but unfortunately, there was only one serving per person. Oh well, there’s always next time!😀
Today we had shrimp tacos for dinner, and while I was taking a photo, Mariko said that the pot of beans (which I usually put in a bowl) was ugly and shouldn’t be in the picture. While I don’t disagree, I thought this was a funny photo of her literally pointing it out. Also, we have some Peanuts glasses that have been in use for years, but those shouldn’t be on the table for the pre-eating photo session. Double-foul! 😆
Anyways, the food was delicious. ❤️🌮 We also enjoyed a spicy diced Serrano pepper from the garden too!
Here are a couple of easy dishes that I made for dinner. The spinach recipe is super simple, with only a few ingredients. The fried chicken is a little more involved, but still at a level that I can handle. 😀
One comment about the chicken is that it is not spicy, even though I used a few large peppers. If you want to add some kick, make sure you use a fiery pepper! And one other thing, Maangchi fried the wings for 12 minutes, but I did it for 8, and next time, I think just 5 minutes for the first fry would be sufficient. YMMV of course!
