Leftovers, Leftovers, Leftovers...

It is something inevitable as far as I’m living all by myself…LEFTOVERS. I still had the edamame (green soybeans), daikon, mentaiko, kinome-miso and Japanese yam left from the virtual kaiseki weekend.

Mentaiko & Cheese Toast

This was something I’ve heard of/read about but never actually tried out until today. I lightly toasted a slice of bread, spread butter & mentaiko-mayonnaise mixture all over and topped it with sliced cheese, and toasted it again until the cheese melt. Mmmm… a bit saltiy, but not too much, and not too fishy, either. I liked it :) Would have been tastier if used a sliced French bread.

I made these bite-size appetizers again (this time I used kinome-miso, too).

With shredded Japanese yam sprinkled with aonori (green laver flakes) and boiled edamame, I had one can of happoshu (low-malt beer).

Other Leftovers ... (except beer)

This was just a warm-up, folks. I'm ready for a big drinking weekend!

What appetizing looking left-overs! When I have left overs, they look exactly like left-overs...or garbage >_<. Yours look wonderful and sounds so delicious.
