Tried out making my first Tsukune following Tastemade Japan's recipe!
Tsukune is Japanese meatball often cooked on skewers. It goes well with soy based sauce. 

I like this recipe because it's more like meat pancake so it's so much easier to prepare and cook.

It's great for side dish or eat it as a meal with rice bowl. Try it out!


- 150g ground pork or ground chicken
- 100g firm tofu
- 1/4 stick of naganegi(Japanese leek)
- 1 tsp ginger
- 1 white egg, set yolk aside
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp corn starch
- 1 tsp salt

- 50g enoki mushroom
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp mirin(japanese cooking wine)
- 1 tbsp sake
- 3 tbsp potato starch with 3 tbsp water, mixed

- 1 cup, green onion chopped
- 1 yolk

1. Mix all Tsukune ingredient in a bowl very well.

2. Preheat the medium size skillet to med-high, pour the mix in.

3. Flatten the mix into pancake form, spread it to skillet size, make sure you have enough space to flip the meat pancake.

4. Cook for 6-8min. Flip then cook for another 5min. Check inside is fully cooked and set on a plate.

5. In the same skillet, cook enoki for few min. Then add Sauce ingredients until thickens.

6. Pour the sauce on meat pancake.

7. Garnish with green onion and yolk.

T-shirt Rug

Things you can do with unused t-shirts.
There's always that free t-shirt giveaways or you don't wear anymore.

I used them to make into yarn and crochet them into rug. I bought 5 drawers from IKEA to put into my studio but I didn't want to damage my wooden floor. It was hard to find exact rug size I want and it took a while but I choose to crochet my own rug that fits just right!

I started with making a t-shirt into strips and spool into a ball. The best  fabric to use is an old bed sheets! That makes lot of yarn!

My studio is still a mess to show yet, but hopefully in the winter I can spend time to decorate the place the way I want it.
