A long week ahead...

A long week ahead...

After this nice weekend in the country, cooking and baking simple yet delicious food, we're now back in Tokyo, but A. is leaving for a business trip for the whole week and I'm staying in Tokyo, with quite a work agenda, starting lectures for the new term and having some important deadline tomorrow. This means that this week cooking is going to be slightly different than usual. I don't mind cooking for myself but most vegetables when combined together are too big for one person and I don't really like eating twice the same things. I will have to find some new ideas of recipes to accomodate. Donburi are a real good option and I love them. I may eat donburi for the whole week! Or soup since it has become much chillier than it was last week and now it feels like autumn.

This donburi on the picture is one I cooked this weekend and I love it's simplicity: new rice from Isumi topped with grilled lotus roots and shiitake. Finished with a little of soy sauce. The perfect dish as a side or a whole for an easy quick meal, tasty and full of different textures.
