Soba-gaki; very simple lunch

(posted; Soba Noodle page)

Very simple lunch (soba-gaki and boild eggs)
This type of soba called soba-gaki (蕎麦掻き) is not noodle shaped. As this page said it is buckwheat flour paste. Soba-gaki is no longer so much of popular food, while old days it must have been when rice was really precious for common people. You will know the detail and how we make it from the page I pasted. You might think it doesn't look tasty but for us it is as delicious as noodle type. Just easier for my husband not to make it into noodles, haha. We just pick some amount with chopsticks and dip them into the soup. Thanks to my husband, I have the privilege to have these soba (buckwheat) meal (*^_^*)

Also this page will show you various type of sobagaki dish pictures.

Thank you very much for your lovely visits.  I'm visiting you soon, friends♬♬♬

  12. Good morning dear!
    This really looks fantastic...and delicious...

    Thank you for visiting and commenting. My English is not so good but I'll try to tell you what other comments , on my blog, refer to.
    July 2010- Doctors found out that my beloved husband had an intestine cancer. He had Quimo, radiotherapy ...and surgery - February 2011! More quimo. Now he is going every 3 months to regular appointment's to check in...and so good.
    It was a very difficult period of our lives. And it is still difficult because there is always the risk of the cancer get you can imagine. But for now I every day thank God for His Mercy and Love. I pray...and I say "Thank You Lord...for one more day ..."!

    That is why sometimes I'm sad...but don't you worry...I'm fine...
    Hug you...
