New little friends
Niboshi is dried anchovy in Japanese. It is one of the authentic ingredient to make fish stock in Japan.
And in fact it is not bad to eat as it is, too. Because of its rich calcium, it is recommended especially for children and pregnant women to eat them regularly.
I started eating them since I got into serious calorie watch after my trip to Japan for this New Year. You never dream how shocking it was for me to find out I was nearly 20kg heavier than I was when I came to London in 1995.
So now I have given up all chocies and biscuies, instead, these new friends came into my life, oh welcome!
BTW can you tell there is a little rebellion going on in my little friends in the top pic?
