Roasted up a yellow pepper and dressed it in a mix of ponzu and rayu, topped with black sesame. It tastes good right away but it’s even better after a day of marinating.

Pumpkin pudding popsicle! My husband loved this, I was not into it. To be fair, I have the same aversion to matcha sweets, which I know people love. This has a pronounced aokusai, vegetal greenness that turned me off. It reminded me of the immortal Caity Weaver line about trying an onion caramel brownie:
“The candied onions were my favorite part of the dessert. All vegetables should be candy. The Vidalia caramel was my least favorite part. No candy should be vegetables.”
For whatever reason, I think I'd like this more if it wasn't frozen. It does have a strong caramel flavor. It's definitely interesting! I think people should try it.

Post-bouldering taiyaki! Camembert cheese filling. The pastry was light and waffley with a crispy exterior, but there was too much goo by half, so it fell apart almost immediately :(

@kaibosh, idk, there aren't many excellent Japanese beers that would merit a high price! But if there's a specific beer that's really haunting you, tag me and I'll tell you if you should pay that much for it 😂

I love a chuhi or two in warm weather, but when it starts to get colder, I start wanting beer.

Fancy summer rolls from Natural Lawson: prosciutto, cream cheese, and wasabi! I like the trend(?) of combining cream cheese and prosciutto with rice, and the wasabi complements everything surprisingly well. What I don't love is the way the prosciutto and rice wrap look together—kind of like raw chicken guts? But it does taste good!

もっとはやく知りたかった! 柿 は 焼 い て も う ま い てことを。ヘタ部分の切り落としてトースターで10分程焼くだけ。カスタードみたいなとろっとした甘さが楽しめます。お好みで バター クリームチーズ などを載せるとより贅沢なスイーツに。焼き柿、私の中で柿革命3.0が起こりました
柿を頂いたので早速試してみることに。酸味のない果物はあまり食べないんですけど、焼くと別物になっておいしく頂けました! 何よりあつあつが嬉しい。栄養価も高いしね♪

Has anyone else tried this? It is SO fucking good. Special recipe from the head chef of the fancy Hotel New Otani. Great texture, and extremely decadent taste, despite being, you know, cereal, and also having half the sugar

BLUEBERRY PIE 🥰 This Gordon Ramsay crust (but next time I’m gonna try this J. Kenji Lopez-Alt crust that my friend made that blew my mind), plus egg + milk wash and sprinkled sugar and salt. Fillingwise, this is good for texture but even 1/3 the sugar was a little bit sweet—you could probably go fruit only! I used 630 g of frozen blueberries total, but if you have whipped cream or custard or a crumble top, you could maybe make do with 500ish.
The crust looks a little sloppy, but I had to take it on a 90-minute journey across town so I knew it would get a little squooshed and it wasn’t the worth the time to make it perfectly even… But while blind-baking the bottom, I cooked the filling (I’m always afraid of berries defrosting in the oven and getting soggy) then filled the bottom, made the lattice, refrigerated it 30 minutes and baked!
Also, if the edges start to brown too quickly, cover them with foil to give the rest of the crust time to catch up! People will love this pie and will be so nice to you if you bring it somewhere 👍👍

Visited a prefecture that hadn’t had a COVID case in weeks, so obviously I put down my bag, took a PCR, and went to eat ramen.

Attempts to photograph last night’s lunar eclipse through the clouds over western Tokyo. Cell phone camera means basically nothing doing, but I liked walking around and seeing everyone standing idly and staring up at the sky.
