natto as an appetizer - day 25

i didn't eat natto for breakfast. i have no excuse for this - except maybe that my mother's visiting right now - and i didn't find another good moment during the day. this evening i went jogging along the hudson river at twilight, listening to pulp and johnny cash. it was raining mildly, and everything was perfect. when i got home dinner was ready (how much better can it get?), but ... i still had to eat my daily natto. so i quickly had a few bites of plain natto on an empty, hungry, exercised stomach (as chad advised).

this is my take on it: eating natto when you're hungry may make a difference, but as an appetizer it doesn't stand a chance. the meal beckoned, was i to waste my time and appetite on soy beans? i did, however, eat enough to report the characteristics of this new brand: the neba neba is terrible - it's stringy rather than fluffy; the consistency of the beans is good - they are firm and crunchy; the taste, finally, is fairly mild. all in all a rather bland specimen.

Are you still eating it without rice? That won't do at all. If you don't have a rice cooker, you should get one.
