Yessss!!! More SQUASH!!!! Plans of going to Met Bar tonite fell thru due to my lack of sleep & sudden return of bad anemia symptoms.. time to up the iron again I suppose….. :[
Meet the Kabocha Squash!!! aka Japanese Pumpkin!!!
After two weeks sitting in my kitchen I finally got to eat him!!! I've been SO excited about it and today I was planning on the Acorn Squash but he looked like he was going "eat me!! eat me!!" so... I DID :]
The outer skin was kinda thick but once it got split in half it was a lot easier to cut into chunks.
btw, if I can I’ll always choose to eat skins!!! The kabocha’s skin cooked up nicely!!!! I love the chewiness of it :] And some parts were toasted and slightly had a crunch to the chew. YUM!!!
I was between halfs and quarters… and decided on quarters… just to switch it up a little!!!
Ready for Bake-off ;D
After 40 min in a 400degree oven :D
Muy delicioso!!!! I had 1/2 of one :] I was gonna sprinkle cinnamon or hot peppers but it was so good as is…
It’s like a cross between a pumpkin and butternut squash, def. sweeter than the butternut but with the texture of a sweet potato. It’s a bit dry but I could totally see this as a creamy soup :] I hear ppl use it in desserts and stuff too so next time!!! It’d work GREAT as a fry!!
I also had some sort of chinese greens.. I forgot to take a pic :D haha…
I had some homemade 醬油雞 soy sauce chicken!!!
1 and a half of them to be exact :] I wasn’t planning on having meat tonite but it was so juicy and tender… (made 滷蛋(soy eggs) afterwards with the leftover sauce)
Had some honey balls with my Hemp milk!!!
The ball absorbed the liquid so fast and kind of broke down and it was sooo good and made the milk EVEN creamier. Hemp > Almond. It’s thicker and sooo delicious!!!!
Then I decided to eat another favorite of mine:
GRADUATES FINGER FOODS!!!
I actually went and bought them in BULK at Costco last wkend… hahaha… so I have a variety of flavors. LOVE the banana one tho ♥
These didn’t break down as much but they were light and fluffy!!!
I finally opened up a bag of my candy corns, the pumpkin ones, and nibbled on a few before I hopped in the shower :]
Watched The Wishing Stairs and nibbled on some fresh mango!!! The movie was really good, creepy :] I like it, not your typical BOO asian horror movie!!! SUPER CREEPY :] Altho slightly predictable but I’m a scary-movie-holic :D
Then nibbled on some chocolate covered dried fruits!!!
First a candied orange slice!!!
And then two chocolate covered peaches :]
For once it’s like the middle of the night and I’m not starved :] Hopefully I’ll get to bed before 430am this time around ;] No more hot tamales to munch on (boo!).. my stomach feels off tho.
