Xmas Osouzai | クリスマスお惣菜

Western Homemade Cooking – Yoshoku foods to GO Second series of ‘food to go’ for my daughter; western food – we call it ‘Yo (western) Shoku (food)’. Since it is getting closer to Xmas, I thought I would do a simple chicken roast and something festive-like food so she can feel a little bit of the December season enclosed caved at home with the little one, hopefully she will have gap of time for some glass of wine and a warm candle. 和食の後は洋食。 子育ては月日を選ばず、子育てに追われると月日も忘れてしまうみたいです。今回はちょっと早いですがクリスマス料理もどき。子供が寝静まったころ二人でワインとキャンドルでクリスマス気分でも味わった貰えればな、とおもって。 Lot of beans, beans salad This is a salad with different type of beans – green peas, chick peas (garbanzo), soy green beans and colorful vegetables – carrots, morocco string beans, orange/yellow/red fresh paprika and butterfly shaped macaroni pasta combined with alfalfa and yoghurt vinaigrette dressing. エンドウ豆、グリーンピース、青豆をふんだんに入れた豆サラダ。彩りを綺麗にしたくてオレンジ、黄色や赤のパプリカに助けてもらい、、からみを良くする為にアルファルファをいれてドレッシングはヨーグルトベースのヴィニグレットドレッシング。   Traditional Roast Chicken Nothing special. It just a roast chicken stuffed with lemon and rosemary and olive oil, salt and pepper baked in the oven for about an hour. オーソドックスなアメリカ式?ローストチキン。 香りを良くする為にローズマリーとレモンをスタッフィングにしてチキンバッグにいれて1時間ばかり蒸し焼きにしています。   Quiche with oysters, spinach and onions 今が旬の牡蠣とほうれん草とオニオンのキッシュ。

Sweet Potato Paste (Yokan) | 芋羊羹

Once again, I’m back; back I hope to a normal regular life since I’ve been away for over a week to perform a ‘gallbladder removal surgery’. I am not certain as to the aftermath and my future diet but seemingly a large intake of oily products and food does not seem recommended as this organ basically disintegrates the oil. Well, I wasn’t much of a great oil eater anyway so…..I hope this will not affect what I loved and hope to continue to love.
