Lunch Box 648: Let Me Eat Cake [May. 28th, 2009|07:21 pm]
[Tags|, , , , , , , , , ]

It's been a while since I made salmon saka-mushi. It still is, as I didn't have salmon, but the tilapia I substituted tastes just fine. Basically, this is fish and mushrooms and spring onions and carrots and snow peas, all steamed together in a tinfoil package until they're nice and juicy. Up above it I have avocado maki and, joy of joys, baked purple sweet potato. However, the market only had these skinny little things. "They're taking the babies!" I thought when I saw them. But I still got a few because I've been suffering from purple potato withdrawal.

On the other side I have a mandarin orange, strawberries, a few cherries, and a dried persimmon, which is more or less a persimmon that's been raisined, but instead of wrinkling up it is squashed into a flat ring. And I have a slice of pound cake made from a recipe my sister gave me. It's awesome, and easy to make if you have an electric mixer. If, like me, you don't, your arm will get a workout.

I've never tried dried persimmon, how does it compare to fresh? Your lunch looks absolutely delicious.

Dried persimmon is to persimmon as prune is to plum. Actually, a prune is a pretty good point of comparison, except the persimmon is firmer and drier.
