Favorite dishes, part 2

April 30th, 2016

When I wrote part 1 of this series two years ago, I meant to keep it going and post again with more food porn photos. I guess I forgot about it, but that’s ok because I’m back with part 2! Better late than never, right? This time, I’m going with the theme of Japanese food, which is one of my favorite cuisines. A couple are even from Japan! Like…

Katsu curry – Go! Go! Curry! (Tokyo, Japan)
I love curry, and Japanese curry is one of my favorites. We’ve tried many places in our city, and their Japanese curry just hasn’t hit the spot. We end up making it at home to hit that craving, but the one we make at home still isn’t the same as the one we had at Go Go Curry. There’s something different about it, especially in its consistency. It’s not as thin and sticks to the rice and katsu better. Plus, the katsu itself was good – crispy and thin, just the way I like it.

By the way, Go Go Curry is also in the US! They have locations in New York and Massachusetts. Unfortunately, I haven’t been to any of them yet, but I’d like to try them one day!

April so far

April 21st, 2016

Uh whoops, I unintentionally took a mini break from blogging and blog hopping. A couple things have kept me busy, and then when I do sit down to blog, I look at the clock and realize, welp, it’s time for bed. Cue the list of things I’ve been up to lately!

1. Instead of blog hopping, I’m Mii hopping on Miitomo. I didn’t expect to be addicted, but I am. Add me on Twitter if you’d like to connect! I’m puyoda on both. You know those blog questionnaires that you tag people in? That’s kind of what Miitomo is, and I think that’s why it’s so fun. You get to answer random questions, which your Mii shares with your friends, and you see your friends’ answers too. Plus, I like collecting clothing for my Mii and taking dumb cool Miifotos!

Yes, a lot of my Miifotos involve food.

My Favorite Things: April 2016

April 5th, 2016

It’s been a few months since I last did this link-up! I think I just had a period where I didn’t have new, interesting things to share. My Favorite Things is a monthly link-up hosted by Raisa and Eirene, and these are my recent favorites!


Sewing: Pattern Weights

I’ve seen pattern weights before that were pretty much bean bags, but I wasn’t interested in them until I saw these that were shaped to fit pattern shapes. I love that it has curved pieces to put near neck or arm holes, and they are actually heavier than they look. They keep my patterns firmly in place while I trace them on fabric. It saves me time since I don’t have to pin them to the fabric anymore!

Anime: Parasyte -the maxim-

I actually watched this back in December and have been wanting to write about it. This Anime was a pleasant surprise, and I liked it more than I expected to. It’s about parasites that suddenly appear on Earth and have the ability to take over a body if it reaches the brain. After taking over a human, they start hunting and eating other humans.

The story focuses on Shinichi, who managed to stop the parasite from reaching his brain. Instead, it takes over his right hand! The series quickly gets interesting as the parasites evolve and start to question their existence and what it really means to be “human”. I will warn you that the Anime is very bloody and gory, but if you can stomach it, I highly recommend it. It’s one of the more memorable series I’ve seen in a while.
