|Cod, Scalioon and Tofu Nabe|
Apology for my lazy work..... not lazy, just couldn't have enough time to write a nice blog! ( excuse, excuse....)
I love all forms of eating as you know, so I love eating at restaurants, joints or friends house etc.. as well as cooking at home... and buying ingredients, of course! But..... one of the joy I enjoy encountering unexpected is!
To get some food gifts from friends..... I am just blessed or they know me so well, that is why they give me food? Or they probably know I need food and money! ( LOL ) Nice friends I have, I am grateful anyways.
What I got today is scallions. Fukaya city, Saitama prefecture is known for their scallion. A married friend ( his wife is also my friend, such a nice couple ) brought probably from his home town and left several stalks at the co-working space I often use. To be shared. We did! I brought them ( I got two! ) home and used 2/3 of a stalk for this nabe ( hot pot ).
Slice of cod, cut scallion and tofu. It is finally getting cold and wintery here, so perfect! I used some Yuzu flavored ponzu and grated ginger to taste.
When I eat Nabe, I feel grateful being Japanese. Nothing special, simple ingredients, but friendship, thoughtfulness, kindness of friends added extra flavor and it made my heart warm to overcome this cold weather.
