Actually, there is probably more cooking in my kitchen than in my actual life!
True story, I have just been very busy with working and school that I have not had much time to blog or even taken many pictures. But I did realize that it has been over a week now since my last post, so I figured I might as well just post these few pictures I have collected since my return from Australia. Trust me though, it's pretty boring!
First, I actually do have something that may impress you. Edamame bagel! Yes, you read that right. The Japanese not only made a bagel, but they put edamame inside. Guess what? Amazing! Absolutely. Now, next time I am passing through Haneda airport, I know what I am stocking up on. Yes, again, you read that right. I found edamame bagels in the Japanese airport.
When I was in Australia I shipped home a box filled with all the things I picked up from the conference. As always, lots of samples.
Has anyone heard of or tried this apple before? Cripps Pink? All I know is that it came from New Zealand (love how I travelled from that area all the way back to Japan and then bought this apple) and it tastes wonderful. I was definitely a fan.
Next is something that may impress you, too. This is the pottery I painted before I went to Australia. When I came back it was fired and ready for me to pick up. I love it! These are sushi plates with chopstick rests and a soy sauce container.
This next picture probably has you drooling already. This is the chocolate PB tofu pie that I made for an auction. I had donated it and the lucky winner got to enjoy this with her family.
I guess I should have something filled with vegetables to follow the very decadent dessert. This is a pretty salad I made for dinner one night. I love all the colors.
On my salad I used this salad dressing. Sadly, I wasn't really a fan. I had a coupon, and I am glad I tried it, but I probably won't get it again.
Cottage cheese and fruit, anyone? This is one of my favorite snacks. Really anything with kiwi is a favorite of mine.
Then comes this delicious pasta dish I made. Whole wheat rotini (from nuts.com), shrimp with garlic and olive oil, and some tomatoes. Yum!
I always enjoy a nice breakfast for dinner. These are egg "tacos" with eggplant and a little cheese.
Last up is something that was made for me as a gift. From my next door neighbor. It was super sweet of her to think of me and share her baked goods. I do love banana bread, so it was very welcome in my home.
Lots more exciting things coming up, but for now...boring!
QUESTIONS: How are things for you? Boring or Exciting? Do you ever bake for your neighbors? What kind of dressing do you use on your salad?
