It’s 91 degrees outside- at 5 in the afternoon. I haven’t been running the aircon this week. The Cherub and I are the only ones home. I wanted supper and The Cherub needed it, but I really didn’t want to cook anything much. So….
I boiled some Soba Noodles for me, and in the same water I put three small red potatoes, well scrubbed, for the Cherub. It was really almost too hot even to do that, but the ceiling fan in the kitchen is a hard worker.
While the noodles boiled, I mixed these ingredients in a bowl (no measurement – it was just a by guess, by golly, by taste thing):
rice wine vinegar
coconut palm sugar
I stirred this well. When the noodles were done, I put them in a colander and ran cold water over them, drained well, and tossed with the sauce. To this I added a couple of handfuls of organic baby greens, some diced day lily buds from the backyard flower bed, and some chilled chopped up fishcake , and sprinkled it all generously with Furikake. It’s perfect.
Meanwhile, The Cherub is eating small boiled potatoes, still in their skins, and some anchovies.
I have my feet up in front of the fan and I’m listening to this and all is cushy. Dudes.
