It's cooking time!
As some people know, I am really addicted to cooking food, especially Japanese food but for me its kinda tough to achieve the original taste. It's very difficult to create a taste which resembles the real dishes you can buy everywhere in Japan. Today, I tried a very easy one - ちらしずし , commonly known as Chirashi-Zushi. It means Sushi, which is scattered around and not rolled up or something like that. A week ago, I met my very lovely friend Stefan from university and we made Chirashi at his home. It was a very good evening, and shared a lot of laughter :3 He has such a sweet, tiny appartement for he is living alone! I fell in love with his tiny living room which I thought very sweet ^-^ The Chirashi turned out rather good so I decided yesterday to redo it. Or maybe, retry it. For the first try I think it turned out rather satisfying BUT I would die I had to show some Japanese the dish I made because it looked very messy xD I also bought the picture above, because I was too lazy to make any photograph of mine (but I used the same ingredients so actually its kinda similar to the one I made. Just a bit nicer xD ). Next week, a few friends from university and I will have an "Okonomiyaki Party" on Friday, where we hopefully make some delicious food - if you want to retry the Chirashi, here is what I recommend to do:
Sushi Vinegar (put a bit of it with sugar and salt into the warm rice bowl)
Soy Sauce (if you like, e.g. for the seafood)
Your Favorite Stuff to put in; normally some seafood or vegetables, but you can put anything into you like! I, for me, really love salmon, cuke and fried eggs. I don't put more than 3 different ingredients to the rice bowl, because I can hardly finish eating this! Altough it's a light summer dish, my stomach feels really heavy afterwards! xD Oh, and I always put some sugar and salt to the egg, I like it when it tastes a bit sweet. You can also use nori or sesame or something like that but I hardly use this kind of stuff, so I don't want to buy it for just one dish in a month or so. Some people are recommending sake to put into the egg, but I had never tried though. Good luck with your Chirashi - oh and I would like to recommend also this site to you! Although it's in German, it's really easy to understand. A lovely girl from Germany explains the recipes for her beloved bento-boxes - I always enjoy having a look on her site and her delicious creations! :3

Love, Sam.

P.S. I'm going to an amusement park, I totally forgot to mention! This trip will be so much fun! We drive by car and I'm very excited of what will come out of all this~

oh, hello there. i'm yasuhiro mochizuki and i'm the cool kid who made this layout. i'd rather you not attempt to take this code and alter it or take this code, strip it down, and use it as a base code. if you really need a base code that badly, feel free to send me an email with what type of base code you need and we can talk about it. that said, i can't take credit for absolutely everything here. so here are all the dope resources i used here: all of the fonts used in this layout can be credited to google fonts save for calibri, which is a system font. the social media sidebar links were created using an icon font from we ♡ icon fonts. most scripts used can be found through a good google search, except for the script that gives the page it's tabs; i don't remember whether i hand coded that or if i found it through another blogger. if you're privy, you can find me predominantly on twitter and occasionally on my blog. toodles!
