Lunch Box 163: Quickie [Jun. 21st, 2006|09:55 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , ]

This lunch was thrown together rather hastily at the end of a long day - which goes to show that if you have the right things in your fridge you can still put together a nice lunch without cooking all the time! In the lower left we have simplified chirashi-zushi, which is basically sushi rice with a layer of nori in the middle, thin cucumber strips and strips of artificial crab on the top, and a pair of shrimp out of a bag in the freezer. Also out of the freezer are takoyaki and edamame. The baked Japanese sweet potato took only a few minutes in the microwave and another minute to slice, and for dessert I cut up some mango and rambutans.

that looks like the same pick for all 3, on purpose?

That was a little bit of code I goofed on until the last 3. Fixed probably before you finished posting this. :)

Really impressive to be able throw together a lunch like that just from what's in the fridge. If I had to make lunch out of just what's lying around in my fridge, it would definitely be of the liquid variety.

Re: Impressive!

I've gotten the hang of cooking in batches, knowing what freezes well and how long I can safely keep things in the fridge, and so on. I'll make large batches of broccoli or rice; keep stuff like crab, shrimp, and edamame on hand, and so on. There's no way I could cook all this stuff every day.
