Mediocre May

So May’s challenge was bittersweet for me.  I did very well preparing various Japanese dishes, however I really sucked at documenting them.  I have a newfound respect for cookbook writers and food bloggers out there, you guys are awesome and I now understand why there aren’t always a ton of pictures for every step of the process.  For me it ended up being too much work and it got in the way of posting anything at all.  I guess sometimes life gets in the way of documenting it… and maybe that’s not so bad 🙂

 

To end this month in style here is a list of references I used to get inspired or find recipes other than Harumi Kurihara’s cookbooks.  I loved cooking Japanese and Japanese-inspired foods.  I found them to be simple without tasting simple and tended to leave me satisfied without feeling stuffed.

Lastly matcha tea or matcha lattes  are my most missed drink from Japan.  If you ever happen upon this beverage you should definitely try a cup!
