Ginger hijiki takikomi gohan

The takikomi gohan I made last month was really good!  Actually one of my friends said it was the best takikomi gohan he had eaten in his whole life!  I was so glad that was thinking to make another flavor one since then.

I bought a lot of ground chicken these days because it was on sale but actually I was not familiar with cooking ground chicken so I wanted to make something with it somehow otherwise it could be getting worse so quickly!!

Therefore I made the takikomi gohan with ground chicken tonight.  I don't think it's not so popular to use ground chicken for takikomi gohan but I think it's gonna be great because ground meat has a lot of juice and they can get seasoning a lot!!

By the way, I'm gonna go to the Charles river to watch the head of  the Charles Regatta race tomorrow!  It's a really famous boat race in Boston and over 300 thousand people are coming every year!  It's first time for me to watch the race so I'm so excited!  Hope tomorrow is gonna be beautiful day!!
