Cho-yummy things

A Tim Tam is basically a Penguin biscuit in a different packet. Not bad, but nothing special. A bit sickly tbh.

I know Penguin biscuits. As you say nothing special.

 

I want to get some Wagon Wheels.

I still keep coming back to the Angel Pies.

 

That crab stuff looks awful. I don't like bones and shells in my food.

Haha, I feel the same way about chocolate. I just hate sweet stuff.

 

Now, if the crab was raw, then that's the kind of sweet I adore.

Pickled Onions.

 

Much better than the little pretend ones called 'rakkyo' you get here. \:\)

Yesterday I had home-made scotch eggs and corned beef pie. Very good it was too.

 

I'm on a cooking boom right now. I hate it when work gets in the way of that on a weekday, often too hungry to want to spend the time after work cooking that slow food.

I got some omiyage from someone that is really good. Small boxes of cookies with Eriya (and Tokyo Nakano) written on them. I really like the cheese flavored sticks. Very nice.

Sour salted plums.

I just love em.

One of the japanese students who boarded with us gave us some and I was the only person in the family to develop a taste for the little kidney killers.

Not sure about sour salted plums.

 

I have had the Eriya cookies before, nice.

I have been making a lot of sukiyaki recently and am getting quite good at it I can tell you. \:\) Really like a strong tasting one, lots of the ones I have had in shops have been rather weak. Next day leftovers really good too.

I love Japanese food generally but my versions of Japanese meals also get a stronger taste as well. Apart from ikanoshiokara and natto of course which doesn't need a stronger taste lol.gif

What I've been enjoying recently is taking some hot gyoza home from a ramen place, and then crisping them up on the stove. Not exactly diet food, but very yummy! \:\)

You are forgiven for being drunk ;\)

 

Gyoza are great hey v? There's a take out gyoza place fairly near where I live and I often pick up 2 packs to take home and crisp up myself. Great after a night out too.

She came home from the standard 10 hour shift at the cakeworks, and cooked me some Cornish pasties last night. The shape was a little unconventional, so technically they are Oishida pasties. Yum 1luvu.gif

Oishida pasties sound good to me. I have not yet had a really successful pie-like pastry here in Japan. I suppose it is good to have things to look forward to like that when you make your way home.

Pasties should have short pastry, but in this case she used flaky, which I prefer. She buys in the pastry for her sweet pastries because getting it consistently right is quite an art, and her supplier has excellent QC.

Oh and I love nozawana whenever I go to Nagano and Niigata. Every time it's pickled differently. Goes really good with Niigata rice and beer, mmm..
