I made Japanese style coffee jelly and fruit jelly with ginger ale base with nectarines and peaches! Both with agar.

Ate the coffer jelly with soy milk creamer.
Yummy! The ones with fruits are better!

Will make more again! :3

So hot in this house, cold noodles are all I wanna eat! :P

Yesterday we had “hiyashi chu-ka”, cold noodle salad, summer classic!
Made everything from scratch, so no chemicals.
I made the sesame sauce today, and pour little lemon juice, made it taste like my favorite cold noodle salad from the restaurant, souen!

And today we had soumen noodle, cuz I craved it,
Usually eat it with just the dipping sauce with green onions and wasabi but I put so much toppings!
Yummy!

And to my surprise, the soumen we picked up from Hong Kong market was from kinda near my home in Japan!

I love Nepali curry!
Today’s menu

Nepali curry with potatoes and mushrooms
Nametake (simmered enoki )
Veggie pancake
Soba noodle salad
Black eyes peas salad
Simmered shiitake

My first time to try black eyed peas, I cooked it too long but it was a very good salad, very refreshing, Whitney said.

I read that I didn’t have to soak the peas over night and can just cook when I wanna use it, but it took about an hour, I should still prepare those peas in advance! :P

I saw this commercial, and I really wanted to try it, but I just thought it wouldn’t be vegan.
Think again, it is vegan!

My friend bought it for me! Thank you! :)

I tried one but it was super melted so I just put it in freezer, like you do with thin mints!

Oohhhh it’s gonna be so yummy!
…so sweet it hurt my teeth.

てるてるあした
加納朋子著

「ささらさや」の続編。登場人物が同じだけど、主人公が今回は中学生の女の子。前回でしった登場人物を違う視線で観察出来るの楽しかった。
悲しい事も起こるけど、最後はやっぱりあったかいきもちを残して終わってくれるストーリーです。
あれだけおっちょこちょいなさやさんも、こんな風に他の人からみられるんだなーってのもおもしろかった(笑)

ふたつめの月
近藤史恵著

「賢者はベンチで思索する」の続編。相変わらず犬のアンとトモもかわいいし。こっちもほんわかさせてくれる、けどミステリー解けてすっきり!人と人のふれあいっていいなあ、ってまたしても思う。

ホテルジューシー
坂木司著

「シンデレラティース」にでてくる主人公の親友、ひろちゃんが今度は主人公!個性派キャラに囲まれて、正義感のかたまりのひろちゃん翻弄される。
おもしろい!これもあったかすっきり。
全部おすすめ☆
