Hi my friends!! I'm so sorry that I've kinda disappeared but yeah.. the jobs (2..sigh!) and other stuff.. are keeping me very busy. But for the rest, I'm doing fine. I know this is just a period and we'll soon move on with our projects so I'm looking forward to the end of the year.
In the few hours I have left for my self I read (now: Life of Pi) but I'm not cooking a lot.. still have to do that muffin! :( I will I will! Is it possible to make a coconut muffin? I'm so ignorant on this!
I hope tomorrow after the work i can post something interesting and take a look at your blogs!
(-->picture made at the concert of Travoltas, yeah I know.. I love this guy)
Today I worked all day on the analysis of my data but the graphs don't look good at all, so I'm trying to fix the problem.. This is the problem to be far away from my boss, when I had a problem I just dropped by her office and asked.. but I guess now I can think more and learn more.. But yes, the time goes by very fast, on Monday I start a new job, then there's the gym and the project.. a lot to do. I wanted to make a vegan cake for my uncle which had a double by-pass surgery and now he can't eat eggs or milk or meat (how come if a lot of people say it's good for your health?).. a very soft cake.. but I need some time to buy all the stuff and cook and visit him! ahhhrgh!
I told you it's a long time I'm thinking about going to Japan in the future for some months and I'm collecting info about the vegan stuff there.. :
I've found a recipe, that I had in mind since I was a very young girl and I loved (still love..) anime (Japanese cartoons). In the cartoon they often talk about okonomiyaki..
Recipe for 10 okonomiyaki (for cup I mean a breakfast cup in this case)
- 1 spoon of sesame oil
- 4 cups of water
- 1/2 cup of whole grain flour
- 1/2 cup of white flour
- 1 spoon of corn starch
- 3/4 cup of cabbage cut in strings
- 1/4 cup of carrots cut in strings
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1 cup of onion
- soy sauce
- oil to fry
Prep! In a pan, fry the onion in the oil. When soft, add the cabbage, then the carrots and let it cook for 2 minutes. Add salt and turn off the fire.
In a bowl, add flour, salt and water and mix until you obtain a homogeneous pastry.
In another pan, warm the oil up and add a bit of pastry to cover the bottom (like a pancake) and add immediately the vegetables. When cooked turn on the other side. Ready! Serve with soy sauce!
Today I've read it's the vegetarians day! Yeah! So I wanted to celebrate with preparing something I've never tasted before: muffins. Now. I know I could check on the web and find a recipe.. but I would like to know if you have a recipe to suggest me!
