bounty harvest/oyako donburi
so today once I got my act together I did some major organizing and the bunny came home with boxes of free food from work. I know this list is going to be super boring, but I love getting free stuff and I am dorky and it was like christmas for me. I squealed with delight at each thing I pulled out of the boxes.
*4 dozen organic brown eggs
* spectrum shortening
* organic green beans
* moonstruck chocolate bar
*organic beef stock
* 2 huge bags of ghirideli dark chocolate chips
* sundried tomatoes
* two cans diced chili
* 1 pound stumptown coffee
* espresso powder
* seventh generation toliet tissue
* 2 quarts organic plain yogurt
* powdered sugar
* 5 pounds organic flour
* 4 boxes cereal
* nature path pomergranite pop tarts
* black refried beans
* 4 cans organic tomatoes
* 4 pouches organic sliced turkey
* back to nature cheez its
* Kashi crackers
* edensoy vanilla enriched soymilk
woo-hoo that was so much fun!!!!!!!!!!
we had oyako donburi which was ham and eggs cooked in a broth of dashimoto(stock used in miso soup, udon, etc), mirin, soy sauce, sugar, and green onions and serve over rice. It kind of japanese hot pot dinner. oyako donburi is supposed to be served with chicken thigh (but i have so much ham!) and means parent and child, because it is served with chicken and egg, I think that is so funny!
Parents feed it to their children the night before a major exam at school. It is also somewhat considered to be "peasant food"
i made our bentos for tomorrow and now I am going to take a shower and try to hit the sack. We have an early day tomorrow and we all know how terrible I have been about getting outta bed.
