Yes, Val was at it again – more amazing lunch boxes! Val saw my cheesy baked eggplant recipe and she was delighted that great minds think alike (ha ha, so much for humility). She cooked Korean eggplant namul, stir-fried zucchini and green beans, soy braised quail eggs, beef bulgogi, and stir-fried fish cakes for Monday’s lunchbox.
Tuesday’s dinner box was unusual for Val, because it was without rice. She had to have dinner while attending a training course, so sandwiches were more practical. Egg sandwiches can be artistic, healthy and tasty.
I am happy to say that lots of people have wonderful homemade joys they would like to share. Lots of homemade cakes. Edible art pieces. The chocolate cake with flowers was an earl grey tea cake baked by a lawyer, who makes incredible cakes. The latest was a black sesame cake.
Homemade doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, we were treated to a homemade dinner tonight and it looked like it was from a restaurant. Stuffed onions (with meat inside), roast pork, mixed vegetables and tomato salad.
Dining together is more than eating together. It is sharing culture and home traditions.
