Adult's Fried Chicken

I follow Tastemade Japan at Instagram and Facebook. There was this recipe that stand out particularly so I gave it a try!

Translation in English always sounds weird but I'm not lying! If you want super crunchy skin with juicy chicken on the inside, this is the recipe for it!

Adult's Fried Chicken

Adult's Fried Chicken
- 5 Chicken Drumsticks, skinless
- 50ml Kaki No Tane(small crescent-shaped fragments of senbei), crushed
- Sliced Lemon for garnish

Marinate:
- 1 tsp Ginger, gound
- 1 tsp Garlic, gound
- 1 tbsp Sake
- 1/2 tbsp Soy Sauce
- 1 tsp Sansho(Japanese Pepper) or Ground Pepper
- 1 tsp Hanasansho(Sichuan pepper) or Crushed Red Pepper

Tempura Batter:
- 50ml flour
- 50ml cold water

1. Cut drumstick into "tulip cut": With scissors, cut the meat from the inside so you're able to flip the meat inside out.
** You can skip this step if you want to speed the process then start at Step 2.

2. Marinate for 30min or overnight.

3. Pre-heat oil in a pan at medium-high. Prepare tempura batter.

4. Dunk chicken into tempura batter, then into Kaki No Tane and then deep fry.

5. Deep fry for 7-8min or until it's fully cooked.

6. Drizzle with lemon to serve.

Subtle Smile

Changed my usual brush and gave me new style I like.
 I told myself not to focus on detail and find simple shapes to create the form.

Then I found this.

Gift Wrap Decoration 6: Apple Blossom

This time I did drawing of Apple Blossom from Shopkins for a 10 years old girl.

Toys they had in my generation were cool too but I am also jealous so many cute toys are out there now.

Fluffy Pancake

I found recipes of making pancakes at a Japanese site.
There's so many ways to make them so it was overwhelming to decide which one to make! This site has variation of ways to make from scratch, pancake mix, twist of Japanese style.

I mainly wanted to make pancakes from scratch so this was my choice to make. Small portion, it literally makes portion for 2 people.

My pancake topping choices were layered sliced banana with cocoa powder, drizzled with maple syrup with smoked applewood bacon.

Great recipe to try on chilling Sunday morning!

Outfit Inspiration 4

Found this black sweater with diamond symbol from Forever21.
It has this open cut around the elbow joint area that I still have no idea what's the purpose. But it looks interesting so I'm wearing it!

I like the combination of sweaters with collar shirt underneath. What I try to do is wear sleeveless collar shirt so it doesn't scrunch up inside as much. The jeans was hand ripped by me.

Grundy Lake

Went to Grundy Lake for camping!

Our camp site was right by the water so it was easy to get on the boat to fish or fish on the shore. At night time, moon was shining bright and there was less forest surrounding the campsite so the area was super bright.

This place is 3 hours drive from Toronto, I got to see so many different kinds of wild animal here. It was nice break to chill in the wild.
