I saw this Bento box the other day that had fruit that was is in cutout shapes and snagged up that idea! I think I’ll get some cute cutlery or toothpicks over the weekend to maximize the fun lunch experience!
I felt like getting a quick and cute dinner together. I bought the star cookie cutters 2 months ago and I just used them today for the first time. When I saw them I knew exactly what I wanted from them.
Dinner consists of a rice, with a rolled egg omelette with Garlic chives, steamed Chinese broccoli that was pan fried with garlic, ginger, a tablespoon of soy sauce, and a dash of sesame oil.
Cooked up some Tamago Yaki today with my special Tamago Yaki Omlette pan. The pan is square and pretty pointless outside of making rolled pan fried items. Took a while to make but I it was worth the wait.
I made it with:
mirin (Sweet Sake)
Dashi (Dried Fish stock)
Garlic Chives (Fresh from the Farmers Market)
I have not made one of these in very long time. Thank to Sa-chan and Yu-chan for teaching me how to make these when we lived together. There were some really handy tricks that I thankfully didn’t forget.
There have most definitely been past loves that have stood the test of time and I look back them with fond memories and many thanks to my past self’s for-sight for having the sense of mind to snap a photo.
You have seen this picture on the main page, but I thought it would be a great injustice not give the full view of this dessert bomb that was dropped on me while traveling to visit a friend in Kyoto, Japan.
I had no idea that this dessert heifer was coming my way when I ordered it. I still remember the way they served it with a cute little metal pour, like you might see milk served with for coffee. Only it was filled with a delicate green tea sweet syrup that I poured all over my amistu dessert. You can see a little bit of it on the banana. One of the best I ever had.
I really wish I could have remembered the location it was served at, but we were visiting so many temples in this temple town I can’t remember which one that it was near. If you ever find yourself in Kyoto, there are several tea shops to enjoy these at so I recommend doing just that.
