Chinese and Japanese put together

Asian mix dinner tonight.

This is called “jyako,” which is a small flavorful fish ( this is the baby of the normal one, but the normal ones are small, too) that my mom likes to have just to munch on straight for mini snacks. She says its loaded with calcium and is good for our health.

Tonight, we had grilled “karei.” This particular fish is facing the wrong way. You’re supposed to put the fish so that it’s facing left (as is) but also so that the fish’s face is upright. Flaky fish.

I made 四季豆! It worked out well, although I couldn’t get the beans to shrivel all the way. but i made these from frozen string beans and yet it worked, so I’m happy for that! I will post this recipe at the bottom of this entry (it’s different every time I make it).

Some spinach and beef that my mom made. Don’t know what’s inside. lol
