These days have been super busy for me. As the semester reaches it’s crescendo of due dates, I’ve also got a few extras added to the list. Next semester will be my last in college (oh no facing adulthood!) and I’m having to meet with counselors and coordinate meetings and what not. Also, kind of as a result of this, I’ve given myself a few more deadlines. Hopefully, this time nest year I’ll be writing posts from Japan. I’m applying for the JET program (meaning I’ll be teaching English in Japan and maybe even attending some cooking classes) and there are a lot of things involved in that. In short, I’ve been pretty busy.
But that’s not to say I haven’t been cooking.
Recently I’ve been experimenting a lot. Thai tea candy is harder to make than you’d think and perfecting it is taking more than a few trial and error batches, but we’re also coming up with wintery flavors that so far have been really awesome. (Egg nog caramel is incredible!) And I tried my hand at making green curry. I don’t know how traditional it is but it tastes good. I’ll probably be asking for help on that one since I’m feeling stubborn about buying curry paste. But we’ll see how that goes.
