purple-haired girls

IMG_4142.JPG uncovered my Kagamin figma last weekend, so I set her up on my desk, and realized I was reading another series with a purple-haired twintail girl…

New Game is a 4-koma style comic about a college graduate who starts working at a game company. the tone is very light, and it’s closer to slice of life than anything else, with a few references to game development (I’ve read about half at this point – taking it leisurely since there doesn’t appear to be a second volume yet). when I read the synopsis I was hoping for something more story-oriented, but this is cute so I’m okay with it  :hee:

faux-shoku

tamagoyaki-20150114

so the above image was dinner.

卵焼き[tamagoyaki] and rice topped with 野菜ふりかけ [yasai furikake].

although, I should say the tamagoyaki was more faux-shoku than 和食 [washoku] – the usual recipe calls for mirin and dashi… neither of which I had. so it’s just eggs, soy sauce and sugar. I did my best to roll it properly though! in my special tamagoyaki pan  :wink:

this whole week is turning into faux-shoku – my lunch this week is salmon flakes (on rice), which, again, was supposed to use sake and mirin, but I had neither. to be fair, when I started I did believe I had sake, at least. unfortunately I only had rice vinegar, which is…. not even close to any kind of substitute for either. the salmon is still quite good!

I bought a bilingual Japanese cookbook about half a year back, and I think I’ll start trying to make some items from it. cooking remains a challenge primarily due to limited refrigerator space – sharing a single fridge with three other people is… interesting. but it does force me to be very careful not to buy more than I’m going to use in the near future, since I don’t have space to buy more food if I decide not to use it….
