So what do you do with a grapefruit, some random walnuts, and a lot of milk you have to finish?

You mix them together I guess.

I’m not sure if I’d recommend doing this with other fruits, but this combo actually turned out fairly well, especially if you’re the type that can’t eat sour things (like my parents) but you just need to finish off that grapefruit. It’s also really easy since it’s practically instant and makes a nice refreshing dessert, so it’s very good for warm weather.

I love tarts and that sort of thing at any time. Even when I hated sweets as a child, I still absolutely loved the Chinese custard tarts that they had a dim sum restaurants. I’ve also tried to make other custards and tarts over the years, but none of them really ever turned out well until I tried and adjusted this South African Milk Tart recipe from Food and Family. It can be eaten hot or cold, but I prefer it hot since it feels like it’s just melting in your mouth. I also liked it especially since it used the entire egg and not just the egg yolk (since I don’t have a strainer).  More photos and recipe behind the jump~!

So once in awhile, when I’m at home, my dad makes congee, or porridge. He says it’s to detoxify our system, although how well it actually works depends on the person, I suppose. We normally have it with only white rice and side dishes from his home village, Shantou, China. Unfortunately, though, I only have it here with random side dishes picked up from the local Asian supermarket.

This multi-grain congee though, sometimes has enough of flavor by itself, so if you choose to, you could probably have it plain. It’s got a very…well, grainy flavor. It’s not something that’s a medley of flavors, but has a clean and natural taste, and it’s good if you’re just tired of eating out.  It’s also incredibly easy and you can multitask at the same time while preparing and cooking the dish. As usual, more behind the jump.

*Warning* Picture heavy! My browser actually froze a couple times while I was writing this.This is probably because I just can’t decide what looks most delicious…

Although most of these posts are probably going to be about me making something, there will also be moments when I talk about food I ate, and yesterday was very food heavy.

As with any “祭” or “fesitval” there will be food and performances, and the JCF was no exception. There were activities for all ages (although I think the older people probably focused more on the food). There were musical performances by local bands and performers, which included “Miyabi” a local group of artists that play traditional Japanese instruments, such as the koto and shamisen. The Kendo Club was also featured, although I didn’t participate even though I’m a part of it (-goes and hides-).

So maybe I’m a liar, and I don’t really nibble, but you can nibble these snacks! I’m usually too impatient, so I shove the entire thing in my mouth and bite. I used to be so proud of this until my dentist praised me (ironically) and told me, “You have a big mouth! We like that around here!”

My mom got a kick out of that.

But I digress.

Back to what I originally planned to say. I’ve been having terrible cravings all week, and I finally decided to whip this one up. It’s super duper easy (like everything else), and passable for a quick craving (although I went and dug something else up again anyways). It’s also simple and delicious, if a bit plain for those master chefs out there.

More photos and the super duper easy recipe behind the jump.

So it isn’t really sashimi in the real sense, but it’s raw silken tofu, and who doesn’t love that smooth silky texture with its refreshing soy taste?

This dish is excellent for summers, but I’m having it in the coolness of spring, and I still love it. It’s also very fast and the ingredients are easy to obtain and put together and is normally enough to serve as a meal in and of itself.

More silken goodness beneath the jump~!

This was actually made sometime last week, but I was so caught up with everything else that I’m only posting it now.

But besides that, who doesn’t love donburi? Katsudonburi, chicken donburi, beef donburi, donburi galore! It’s also a really good meal since it’s easy and quick and has the basic carbs, vegetables, and proteins (I think?).

As usual,  recipe and another picture behind the jump.
