Bento Box & Dinner April 15th

Leftovers from last night

Good thing about me is I usually don’t drag my bad feeling to next day. If I’m in really bad mood in the next morning, it means something… This morning I woke up with OK feeling. Somehow recuperated from the crushes from yesterday 🙂

Speaking of bad luck day, actually this year, 2013 should be the worst year in my whole life according to a Japanese belief. It says that 32 years old (in Asian age 33yrs old) is a critical year for women. 19yrs old and 36 yrs old are also said too. The year starts at Lunar New Year. And I’ve figured out that the belief is true… I’ve had so many problems,small or big, and arguments with my husband since then. I know it’s all how I handle the situations, but I lost so much energy to against them. Well, Next Lunar new year is January 31,2014. So only 9 months to go!!

OK,now, go back to food.


Ma-Po Tofu, Tofu & minced pork in spicy sauce
My Ma-po tofu is very spicy, I thing it’s the same level of Szechuan restaurant’s. I make it from scratch. One of the best recipe of mine.

Sauteed Vegetables

Tomato with onion dressing

Hope tomorrow is good day!! To myself and to you all 🙂

Gochisousama deshita!

  1. I love how hearty your food looks. Ma po tofu is one of my favourite and I wish I know how to make it. Sorry to hear about your problems; I am sure you will solve them soon! 🙂 x

      Thank you for your comment! I wish I could write the recipe of ma po tofu… But the thing is I don’t scale the seasonings and I substitute and juggle the seasonings… There is no exact recipe I can show. But what I can say is making ma po tofu is pretty easy, probably easier than you think. And you can substitute pork meat to mushrooms too.

      • I know exactly what you mean! Sometimes when I cook, I estimate the ingredients, and then I have a hard time writing the recipe down. Mushroom ma po tofu sounds delicious! xxx

        Exactly. And when you cook mushroom ma po tofu, use dried mushrooms and many different kind of mushrooms. Dried mushrooms make great vegetable stock and give the dish rich aroma.
