I spooned the warm sweet rice into ramekins into order to mold them into the same shape as served in the restaurant. It was fun to use dishes that we brought back from Japan that don’t get used as often as they should.
Mango is so bright and juicy. I was surprised to see so many things in nature that remind me of this fruit.
Several years ago, I made a wonderful salsa for pork chops with cubes of mango chunks in it. I’ll have to dig up that recipe. Not only was it tasty but it was beautiful alongside of the pork.
After living in Kansas for a few years, we definitely got used to seeing sunflowers all over the markets there. It was fun to bring home a bundle of them recently and be reminded of the beautiful state of Kansas. We knew very little about that state when we moved there but we were continuously delighted with its beauty.
