2D Food

Shokugeki no Soma is my favourite anime this season and every episode is a total foodgasm! I was really excited by the Chaliapin Steak don when I saw the characters' reactions to the dish so despite not liking beef I just HAD to cook it and try it for myself!

From the manga

From the anime:

My dinner:

Sadly I didn't have a big enough bowl so mine's not a 'don' but I cooked the steak the same way as Soma-kun, I even used super cheap steak! [Tesco's easy cook steak because I really do know nothing about steak] 
The only other changes are:
* plain boiled rice
* chicken stock and a splash of vodka instead of red wine

This was VERY yummy! Despite not liking beef, I really, really enjoyed this dish! While the steak was yummy, it was the onions and sauce that really made it a great dish for me. It's not a lie, it really does make you keep shoveling and it really is a bit sad when you're finished because the flavours leave you wanting more. I will definitely be making this again!

Truly Outrageous

I saw the trailer for Jem and the Holograms. Nope. I was super excited when I first heard about this being a thing but I was very disappointed. This is NOT what I wanted :<

I think I'll stick to the cartoon series thank you because this is truly outrageous in the worst possible way. Show's over Synergy.

The Middle of Nowhere

Today Sharon took me out to Riverdale Barn to set up  wedding and when she told me it was in the middle of nowhere, she wasn't exaggerating!

Isn't it just the most beautiful place? I forgive the fact that I couldn't get any signal all day! We were there pretty much all day and I was really shocked that Sharon would usually do something like this by herself. It was really interesting to see it all come together and made me realise how big a job it can be but it was definitely worth it because it looked amazing!

To begin with I helped assemble all the lanterns which Joe then hung to the beams of the ceiling.

A totally scrummy Sweetie Cart! Pouring all the sweets into jars was a real challenge, they were SO tempting!!!

I really love the bride's centre pieces, the little Lego people are such a cute and fun touch!

Hope you had an amazing day Dawn!!!
