Teriyaki, Digestives, and Frigid Weather

Over the weekend I made teriyaki and some homemade digestives. I was happy with all the results. I was nervous about making teriyaki. How the heck was I going to achieve the flavor Mark and I love about teriyaki without coming short. I’ve used teriyaki sauces before, they were disappointing compared to what you get at all the teriyaki places here. I don’t know why. Maybe they use the same thing, but since it comes in the take-out boxes from…

Peachy Simple Syrup and Jam

Peachy Simple Syrup and Jam

Why make your own simple syrup? Because it is SIMPLE! Hahahaha! Firstly, why did I do this? Well, because we were out and I forgot to grab some at the store! Also, I realized all that makes up this simple syrup is sugar and water!! Amazing right? That is the simple syrup that I made. I did use raw sugar so that is why it is brown 🙂 Then I wondered what else could I do with this easy recipe! PEACHES!!! I…

Mark will probably say I failed 🙁 Oh well, I found things wrong. Here is the…

Proposal.

Proposal.

Oh goodness! Mark proposed Saturday evening. He had his original plan foiled! He was going to take me up into a seaplane around Seattle and propose once we were done or something silly like that!! But LAKE UNION WAS FROZEN OVER. For Saturday and Sunday they said. Oh goodness. He planned to take me out to a VERY lovely dinner to El Gaucho in Bellevue. I chose an amazing swordfish steak and he had filet mignon. Our sides were steamed…

Katsu!

Katsu!

Last night I fixed Katsu for the first time. Wasn’t too hard to do. I fixed Mark turkey since they were the smallest meat fillets I could find anTrader Joes. I fixed myself tofu. This accompanied Japanese curry which I added about an extra tablespoon of curry to, and of course some delicious white rice 🙂 . My only complaint is the popping grease!! I’m terrified of popping grease since my burton my arm when I was in third grade….
