August 27th, Monday:
- Country Soup (Fried Tofu, Daikon Radish, Carrot, Shiitake Mushroom, Konnyaku)
- Egg-Bound Satsuma-age (Satsuma-age, Onion, Burdock, Green Bean, Egg)
- Plum Simmered Saury
- Kcal: 885
Pickled plums have various benefits such as an antibacterial effect, increasing the appetite, and recovering from fatigue. Today’s saury is finished up by being simmered with it.
Humid days continue…
I am always a fan of Country Soup. It has lots of interestingly textured vegetables, nothing repulsive at all, in a savoury broth that cannot help but make me happy. I liked the egg-bound satsumaage as well. I must confess I am not very fond of saury to start with (it’s bony and dark…), but today’s did have a distinctive pickled plum flavour which was nice.
