It’s Children’s Miracle Network fundraising time again.  Bought this bento for lunch: grilled chicken, redondo’s hotdog, spam and furikaki rice, washed down with a brisk Lipton iced tea.  :0)

*Bittermelon in Scrambled Eggs*

image

It’s bittermelon in scrambled eggs.  I don’t really have a name for it.  My mom used to cook it for me.  Not exactly an omelet because there’s no cheese.  Bittermelon ain’t the type of vegetable that’s a favorite among anybody.  But I like it and make it  especially when I have “my monthly visitor” .. as some may say.  It helps with the cramps and the flow of things.
     You can boil or steam the bittermelon to reduce the bitterness a bit.  But for its full effectiveness, just fry it in a bit of olive oil then add the scrambled eggs. :0)

*Ikura a.k.a. salmon eggs a.k.a. gold of the ocean*

Upclose.. this is Ikura.. my favorite, and  my hubby brought some home just for me 🙂

Not just one bowl, but two!  In hawaii, it’s like gold!  Ikura nearly cost $30/lb.

They are usually used in sushi.  The sushi made up of nori, rice, ikura and ahi poke.  Nori is seaweed, ikura is salmon eggs, ahi poke is merely cut up raw tuna, and of course you know rice… mmm, yum! :0)
