Last week was a pretty horrible week health wise. It started with me somehow spraining my hip while sitting on the sofa and only went downhill from there. After hobbling about all day Monday, I had to go to Lanai for work on Tuesday and promptly came down with a virus Tuesday night. Three days of body aches, fever and chills later, I was finally feeling better and then the virus spread to my eyes!! And it's not pretty. Eeeewwww.
All this hot weather hasn't helped much either, but summer always makes me crave saimin, and saimin always makes me feel better.
We eat this for dinner way more than I should admit to but, it's really quick and actually a fairly healthy dish. Plus Buddy loves saimin, so it's not a hard sell. You can do saimin all sorts of ways, but I usually serve it with won bok (Chinese cabbage), tamago-yaki, two kinds of kamaboko, tofu, and my favorite (and very addicting) korean style nori. Sometimes I add shumai or gyoza too. Then I just add some sides of Buddy's favorite Japanese cucumbers, grape tomatoes, carrots and celery and we're good to go.
Watermelon for dessert, and I'm feeling better already.
