Japanese “Fast Food” – Vanilla Meringue Cookies

Filed under:Fast Food☆,Snack Time,Sweets — posted by IOjaw on December 31, 2006 @ 12:23 pm

These are a little something hubby picked-up for the holidays. Since we enjoy vanilla-flavored coffee, I thought I’d give a try to doing the marshmallow thing. It didn’t work out too well though. Even though the item is basically meringue, the additional ingredients needed to produce the cookie version kept it from completely disentigrating in the steeping liquid.

Hubby was feeling a little experimental again, for the meal he simply add chopped onion, dried curry powder, and (believe it or not) leftover mushroom gravy to the last of the Creamy Herb-Chicken Stew; then ladled it over a bed of rice. As a garnish, I added zasai and cracked black sesame seeds.

With the weather changing, hubby thought he’d give the crockpot a go and did some experimenting with overnight cooking, Papa’s Crockpot Herb-Chicken Wraps:

Papa's Crockpot Herb-Chicken Wraps

(Click on image to view large size)

For the meal, hubby mixed chopped fresh basil and rosemary, olive oil, dried tarragon flakes, white pepper, minced garlic paste, freshly-squeezed shikwasa juice, and chicken broth granules; poured the mixture over frozen chicken wings placed in the bottom of a crockpot; and cooked on low for 16 hours. Once done, the chicken meat literally fell off the bones. Hubby drained the liquid (sort of) from the chicken with a spoon; seperated the meat from the bones; and placed the meat in heated tortillas lined with iceberg lettuce and cheddar cheese. As an accompaniment, he added whole cherry tomatoes.
