Today justified all the hard work in our veggie garden last Winter.
All the plans to plant out our seedlings [mentioned yesterday] very nearly came unstuck this morning.
Woke up to find we’d had 6mm of rain overnight, in the past that would have meant that the veggie patch was a no go zone. Last Winter we had decided to raise the level of all our garden beds and box them in. Today it paid dividends, although the pathways between the beds were a bit sloppy, Sue and I were still able to plant out all those lovely seedlings. Makes you feel proud it does.
I know Valentine’s Day was yesterday but I’ve offered to prepare the main meal for us today, so Sushi King comes out of the pantry. I love doing vegetarian Sushi rolls, so that’s what we’re having.
OK now who’s paying attention, Sushi rice needs Rice Vinegar and that’s an avoid for an A. No problem. In my recipe I flavour my rice with a small amount of Mirin [Japanese rice wine], Vitamin C [Ascorbic acid]crystals dissolved in water and a small amount of Lemon juice to taste. Mix it all together in a small bowl and sprinkle and stir through the rice as it cools.
Not traditional but A compliant.
For today’s filling we will used finely shredded lettuce, topped with Cucumber, marinated Tofu and a julienne of vegetables including Carrot, Zucchini, and Red Japanese radish. All rolled up in Nori Sushi sheets.
Served on a flat plate surrounding a bowl of home made Miso & Tofu soup.
It’s no wonder I feel so healthy.
On health matters, I jumped on the scales yesterday for the first time since Christmas, whoops, 13st 12lb [194lb], now where did the extra 6lb come from ?
Don’t worry Dear reader, I’ll fix it.
