Wedding dinner last night

I was at my cousin’s wedding last night, so I didn’t have time to prepare anything for dinner. Good thing I had some frozen rice in the fridge. ^o^ I had bento #14 (rice in miso soup) again, without the wakame this time cos I forgot to bring some, and with steamed ladies finger and […]

Bento 14: Rice in miso soup

Rice in miso soup with wakame and ladies finger. I didn’t know what to make for lunch actually, as there was a lack of ingredients and inspiration the night before. I’d planned to fry chicken, and whatnot in the morning, but couldn’t get myself to wake up early. While showering, I remembered Kan-san saying that […]

Instant miso soup realised!

The Marukome miso paste e already has dashi stock added to it, so it’s pretty complete in flavour by itself. All I did was add half a tablespoon of paste to hot water in a small bowl and I had miso soup! ^_^ The soup could do with straining for those who don’t like the […]

the seriousness of my diet-ness

Had a delicious sungkai buffet at Le Taj with Nuran last night. And after that we went for gelato because the ice cream served at the buffet was rock hard (too hard to scoop) and not so yummy. I bought a workout video after that. *grin* Nah, I didn’t buy the video because I feel […]

Bento 15: Chicken Teriyaki with broccoli

Steamed broccoli, chicken teriyaki thigh, white rice. The chicken looks awesome, but by the time lunch time came, it was dried up, cold and hard and didn’t look that appetising. O_o I guess I should have warmed it up. We’d let the chicken marinate in Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinade for a few days because it was […]
