Ginger tofu stew and new rice

This is a rather unattractive image of an incredibly good stew. Yusuke made it weeks ago, though, so we don’t exactly remember what was in it. The key components were chunks of firm tofu, carrots, [pork], and gigantic green onions from a farmer’s market. There was also copious amounts of ginger, which made me warm and happy.

Beautiful rice

The aesthetic appeal of this post is saved by the above image of beautiful, beautiful rice. It was the last of our more recent batch sent from Japan as a gift from my sweet mother-in-law. There is a distinct sheen to the high-quality grains, and they are almost uniform in their roundness. Even though we buy relatively good rice here, it’s a bit of let down to go back after this most excellent grade. Sigh.
