Just one!

Today I only had to make a bento for myself, while i enjoy making bento for others it can be quite a struggle to think of what to pack as well as taking a little extra time to prepare.

So it was quite nice to be able to wake up later and only have to throw together a fast and tasty lunch.

This lunch took about 15 minutes in total to make, pack and photograph.

This lunch contains:

  • Mixed salad
  • Cherry tomatoes and
  • Egg coated noodles ( I think they need a name.. maybe Ramago? a mix of Tamago (egg) and Ramen (Noodles)

<u>To make the “Ramago”</u> (This is for one serving using a packet ramen)

  • Put 100ml of water in a pan and bring to boil.
  • Add noodles and any spices and stir to break up.
  • Keep stirring until all of the water has evaporated and then turn off heat.
  • Break an egg into a measuring jug and mix.
  • Put the noodles into the egg and stir to coat.
  • Add noodles and eggs back to the pan and cook fully over low heat.
  • Once the egg is fully cooked, turn of heat and serve as desired.

Japanese food bargains in Hull

20120923-135607.jpg

If you’ve read some of my older posts you will know on a Sunday I often go to Walton Street market in Hull.

There is one “stall”, it’s not so much as a stall as it is a little shop under cover, that sells all kinds of snacks etc.

Recently they started selling 5 pots of demae ramen for £1 so I stock up on them each time.

Today when I went they had 5 packets of tofu for £1. Having never tried tofu I would much rather spend £1 than the £3+ in supermarkets if there is a chance I won’t like it.

So if you have the chance get to Walton Street market in Hull and find a bargain 🙂
