Sunday Cooking

Today's theme: balls. I was cooking mostly with an eye toward bento boxes for the next few days.

  • Sticky rice balls were stuffed with marinated zucchini, roasted garlic, and green onions, then coated with sesame seeds.
  • Falafel balls were made from mix--my first try with the mix from the bins at Whole Foods. If it doesn't work out, I'll go back to making my own.
  • Redfox mentioned she'd made marinated mozzarella balls, so I played copy-cat and used her balsamic vinaigrette, with the addition of a little honey.
  • A cantaloupe served up frozen melon balls.
  • Several eggs were boiled, and when the time is right, I shall peel them and soak them in soy sauce for 15 minutes. Oblong yes, but balls still.

Finally, out of theme, I cooked a pot of adzuki beans with barley, adding salsa and tomato.

Balls, I say!
