Grass Fed beeeeeeef!
We just read a few articles about the ties of big pharma companies to the public universities that do research in agriculture. We eat meat about once or twice a month only, and one of our reasons was the amount of chemicals that the animals are dosed up with. Other reasons are the environmental impacts that large scale cattle raising has and further the adverse health effects of eating a diet rich in meat.
Just like that old saying “you are what you eat,” let us define ourselves as caring and compassionate people, both for the society we live in and also for ourselves.
Rice Pizza! Just got home and this tasty treat was ready to go!
Great after a long day.
I must admit, Instagram is addicting. The pictures looked pretty cool, so I decided to upload some of my instagram pics of my lunch, cha-soba or green tea soba noodles, soba that the hipsters haven’t yet found out about.
There’s some hiyayakko, cold tofu on the side on a scorching hot day in LA.

Nopale Tsukemono, a fusion pickled dish that our family loves. Much like the Japanese American invention of the California roll, we decided to mix some of our local cuisine with the cuisine of our heritage.
Japanese people that came to California thought that the avocado was similar to fatty tuna. Well, we though the nopales, when cut and pickled, had the texture that was similar to mekabu a type of seaweed/kelp.
Anyway, this is a delicious little dish that’s super easy to make and every can add as a little side dish.
Mix all the items in a bowl and store away in a tupperware (hopefully your tupperware is not as beat up as ours…). Let it sit in the marinade for half a day or so before eating.
Rest in Peace, Kyocera Knife (2010 - 2012)
we’ll miss you and always remember you. You were one of the best knives that a cook could as for. I hope we’ve treated you well with respect and didn’t shame you with the dishes we made… It is indeed a sad day in the Matsumoto family, as we mourn over the loss of our lovely knife, coincidentally on Good Friday.
Rabbit food, bird food, grass… whatever. People have various ways of referring to vegan and vegetarian food, but let us show you some of the dishes we tried last weekend at Sun Power Natural Food Cafe in Studio City. All we could say about the dishes we tried is YUM!!! If you’re vegan/vegetarian and you live in the LA area, this place is a must go.
Fries! Frites!! Chips!!!
People have different names for this yummy treat around the world, but it all means delicious in our language of food! Needing a quick snack that both the baby and I can eat, I put a twist on everyone’s favorite snack.
It’s a combination of Japanese flavors with a popular European dipping sauce for frites.
Fries topped with
Makes an excellent afternoon snack!
It was a good way to start our Saturday morning with our own personal alarm clock (the Baby) waking us up at 7:45.
Hungry, all of us Matsumotos walked into the kitchen to get some energy from some whole grain goodness.
The waffles are made with the combination of oat flour, brown rice flour and whole wheat flour. A vegan delight in the morning, with a spicy touch to it.
