Housewife’s Tale episode 34

Lotsa cooking this week. I have not tried something new yet. :( I am out of ideas and can be a picky eater; making this almost an impossible feat when it comes to trying out new dishes.

For week 34 menu.

.

Sunday – Japanese night. More like an impromptu sushi making evening. I tried making unagi/eel sauce as well. They were always used on rolls in some places, I decided to try make it.

I used this recipe from Sushi Day.

Unagi sauce:

1/2 cup mirin (sweet rice wine)

1/2 cup shoyu (soy sauce)

1/4 cup sugar

and 1 cup dashi (optional)

I drizzled the Eel sauce on top of my california roll~ Also made shrimp tempura rolls, Spicy crab rolls, Crispy california rolls.

For the tempura, I used this recipe from Sushi Day as well. I have to say, this tempura batter was pretty kick-ass.

As for the spicy mayo in the crab roll, just a simple mixture of Sriracha, tobiko, mayo and a little condense milk.

Then I made these udon topped with these bonito shavings.

Tuesday –  I went for yoga for the first time today. I am still undecided about whether I like yoga or not. I am going to try out a few more variations of classes before ruling out yoga~

We stopped by the Vietnamese market and picked up a mackerel.

Saturday – Had to use up this half chicken that I had sitting in my freezer. Since I did not defrost the chicken in time to marinate or do anything with it. I boiled it for chicken rice!
