Ok, so one of my resolutions is to update this blog more regularly, although my focus will be changing to more of a food blog than a book blog. I’ll probably still talk about random geek stuff occasionally (like conventions!), but want to try cooking more this year. Was feeling pretty blah about cooking and ate a lot of mediocre meals last year (chips and salsa is a meal, right?).
Anyway, starting the year off with a traditional Japanese food, ozoni.
Just a brief food post.
Apple cheddar scones. Recipe from smitten kitchen. I had some granny smith apples that needed using, and I don’t normally eat those kind of apples plain. Honeycrisp and Fuji are my eating apples.
Slightly overdone. Also, my cheddar wasn’t sharp enough, as I could barely taste the cheese baked into it. These are much improved when eaten with a slice of cheese on top of it. I may forego the sugar sprinkling on top, too, to get away from a sweet scone.
Random food post here! But it’s my blog, so I’ll do what I want!
Out of curiosity, I decided to make Serious Eats’ ramen pizza. I won’t post the recipe here, so if you’re interested, you can click the link and head over there.
Yeah, I’m almost caught up! Except this is when I started watching a TON of anime because all this amazing stuff came out! I can barely keep up now! Fall is insane. I’m pretty sure Winter 2014 will return to normal levels of 3 or 4 shows though because so far, all I’m looking forward to is Sailor Moon, Space Dandy, and Silver Spoon 2.
All of the following anime are streamed at Crunchyroll, except Blood Lad, which is Hulu.
With me being horrible at updating this blog and in a funk, practically a whole year has gone by without me talking about anime. So I’m going to do this in season chunks still with what I tried and what I stuck with, it’s just really late…
The problem with doing this so late, is my memory really fades on the mediocre and meh anime.
Winter 2013 anime season has
started finished eons ago*! Of course my number one primo anticipation was Chihayafuru 2. The club is looking to get some new recruits and eyeballing the current crop of first-years, while the ladies of the first-years are eyeballing Taichi. With the first episode I wasn’t sure about the first obvious eventual member, but by the second I could see she would at least be interesting and not as annoying as I feared. The second member is… odd. Anyway, I’m excited to see where this is going to go! (10 month later note: This season was poorly paced and relied heavily on flashbacks. I still greatly enjoyed it, especially the final episodes, but it did get pretty draggy at times. At least there was more Arata in this season eventually, and I got to hear his lovely Fukui accent.)
I would’ve been happy with just Chihayafuru 2, but so far I’ve found maybe a couple of other anime to watch as well, along with continuing Psycho-Pass and Space Brothers from previous seasons.
*NOTE: Okay, I was going through old posts and what not and for some reason this never posted? And of course it’s now fall… -_-; ANYWAY, I just threw it up now as is with some edits about dropping etc.
My Comic-Con haul! (and I didn’t bust the credit card)
Normally not a fan of the giant bags, but c’mon… it’s Adventure Time!!
More after the jump…
