Elsie M. Teruya, age 97, made this dish whenever she was busy and needed to get supper on the table quickly for her husband and five children.
She says to add anything you like to the dish to customize the flavor. “One of my friends eats it with kim chee, and it comes out just right.”
For her own part, though, “I do not add anything ’cause I am an old happy grandma with simple tastes. Hoping this meal will make some other grandma happy.”
