One thing I never realized, until in the confines of my mini kitchen, is the great smell that bamboo steamers give off when they're put to use. Not only does it waft through the air with everything else cooking, but it also imparts a slight flavor to whatever is being steamed inside of it. I simply placed this above a pot of boiling water and let it steam until the chunks were just tender.

I did create a few more entertaining things this afternoon (I got carried away!) - but those will have to wait until next time!
