Our dinner tonight...

One of our simple favorite dinner.



Gomoku gohan: steamed rice with 5 ingredients seasoned with Japanese soy sauce
Toriniku no karaage with negi sauce: fried chicken with leek (spring onion) sauce
Kyuri no ume ae
Tofu and wakame Miso soup

Our family is a big fan of fried food. This tori niku no karaage with negi sauce is one meal served regularly for our dinner. Gomoku gohan used to be Iki's favorite, but somewhat tonight he wasn't as excited as usual (_ _o). It is a very healthy meal indeed, with chicken, shiitake, carrot, bamboo shoots, and gobo inside. A good balance for the oily fried chicken.
Today's side dish is kyuri no ume ae, cucumber with chopped umeboshi (Japanese super salty plum pickles). It's easy to make and I love the combination of cucumber and salty taste of umeboshi. Miso soup is like a must in Japanese meal, and this time I put tofu and wakame as the main ingredients. Tofu and Miso paste are high protein sources, and wakame (seaweed) is rich of fibers.

waduh itu sih bukan simple hihihi.
Tapi aku jg suka nyobain masak masakan Jepang. Trus jg bumbu2 jepang (tp ndak sampe pake bumbu yg hargane selangit hehehe).
Kita suka pake soy sauce nya Jepang yg merk Kikoman euuunaaak, masak apapun terasa lezat hahahaha.
Nyobain miso, soba sauce, tempura sauce hehehe.
Disini bumbu komplete, bahkan tepung buat tempura sendiri, tepung buat apalagi sendiri. Rasanya klo mbuat apa gituh sudah praktis heheehehe.
