mini donuts

I bought this cute make your own donuts snack pack from Pacific mall. They had different kind like cupcakes, sushi candy, ice cream cake pop and sort. This doesn't require baking so I would imagine it's just as bad as those Easy Bake. But it actually had no preservatives and no artificial colors. How did they do that?
Keep in mind that this is a kid's snack, I wasn't expecting great taste of deep frying goods that doesn't require frying, I just wanted to do the making part.

So this is what Sir Charles and I spent our Sunday afternoon tea party. The actual donuts were gross but the icing were finger licking good~

Happy Kitchen donuts

simmered soybeans and salmon

I tried out this recipe and it goes REALLY REALLY well with rice. This is more for sidedish but I had it as main entre!
Soybeans has Isoflavone that does similar function as hormones protecting from cholesterol. This is especially good for middle age people.

- 1cup soybeans; in bowl with 6 cups of water sit overnight OR on the day of simmer soybeans for 1 hour.
- pinch of salt
- 1 salmon fillet; cut into bite size
- 1 spring onion; chopped in half
- 1 chunk of ginger; cut into 4
- 1L dashi(fish broth) OR veggie broth
- 3tbsp sugar
- 2tbsp sake OR any liqueur
- 4tbsp soy sauce

1. Pour pre-prepared soybeans in a pot and boil with pinch of salt. Add more water if required. Strain.
2. In different pot, grill salmon.
3. Add spring onion, ginger and soybeans. Saute all together to bring flavor.
4. Add dashi and sugar. Simmer for 8 min.
5. Add sake, soy sauce, and simmer for another 20-30min. At this point it's up to you if want to simmer more for flavor(it just gets saltier).
6. Discard spring onion(I just eat it instead of throwing away) and ginger, then serve.

share my childhood memory

Who had the REAL Polly Pockets when you were young? I saw the current one and they're nothing like these! To be honest I didn't play with these that's much cuz they were so tiny. It was more like miniature display purpose toys.

So last week I took a week off at my home town. It was time for me to clean up my room and decide what to keep.
I want to share some of my work I did during Grade School. I found my shield I made in Gr. 4 project. Clearly Dragon-ball influence!
The shampoo package design were Marketing class I worked on with my friend Jen. She has the pink version. Unfortunately these were getting gross so I had throw them out..... But here is the photo to keep me reminded.

And my collection of Disney puzzles. I had these since I was Grade 1 and Grade 3. These are worth to keep.

who remembers REAL Polly Pocket?
