I’m all moved into my new apartment in Chicago. I still have a few things in storage, but more or less settled in. I do have to buy furniture still, but my new place is livable.
New York, oh New York, boy do I miss it. I’m not sure if it’s the city that I really miss or rather just that part of my life. Probably the latter. But I did make proper use of my time there by learning to make delicious foods. Speaking of making food, I’ve made a few things since I last posted about making cold soba.
I think I like them so much because they go with just about any soup/noodle dish. For example, case one: spaghetti.
Here they are with some spaghetti. Standard sauce of tomatoes, chicken stock, butter, garlic, onions, salt, and some pepper.
I did make other things. I tried making onigiri-yaki. I can’t really say that I’m as good at making this one, but I did give it a try.
It was my first time making onigir-yaki. What I’ve found is that it’s your standard onigiri, but a little tastier since you dabble some sauce on the outside and pan fry. My sauce was a soy/rice vinegar mix. It kind of tasted like I had added mayo to my onigiri.
