And so for Lent, I'm giving up eating like I'm traveling, and hopefully traveling too. This is not a sustainable pattern unless I'm planning on gaining a lot of weight or training to be some kind of Olympic athlete in a sport where middle-aged women can excel.
So here's what's cooking this week.
On the Fly Orzo Salad. With 70-degree weather and daylight savings kicking in, we may even eat outdoors.
Chicken apple sausage with red peppers, onions and zukes. I've noticed that Spaniards and Bostonians do not believe chicken sausages. No recipe required.
Katsu curry (Leftover Japanese curry stored from the freezer + Tonkatsu), namasu and salad.
Nearly Meatless Thursday
Okonomiyaki with kamaboko and a bit of char siu. Easy comfort food and minimal meat.
Fish on Friday
Simple Salmon baked with rock salt and fresh cracked pepper (no dill this time), rice, and roasted asparagus and tomatoes. I may add some tea rice at the end.
We had the fancy version of this at the Pineapple Room a couple of weeks ago, but it will be nice to have the home cooked simplicity.
Thank you all for keeping me honest with the weekly menu schedule. Your support is much appreciated!
Aloha to all.
