6 Jun 10 (Sun) - Okonomiyaki & Kaisen Chahan

Was spending the weekend at my sis’s place and decided to put my latest recipes to test. First I cooked Okonomiyaki in the morning intending to have it as lunch and pack the remaining as my lunch next day. I was surprised when both Ry and Lyn ate one each as breakfast and didn’t complain about it. So in the end, I only have one left for next day lunch. Ry and Lyn are known to be fussy eaters and so when they ate up all the two pancakes, it had to mean something. Anyway, in the evening, I cooked Kaisen Chahan (Seafood Fried Rice) and the sauce that I had made intending to make Sukiyaki (Sliced Beef with Vegetables in Soy-based Soup) ended up as the soup base for steamboat.
