Foodie round up time! For those who have followed my blog and particularly my food posts, every two or three months I will post a round up of things I've eaten/made at home! The last two months were quite fruitful with plenty of things eaten out and made fresh at home! My boyfriend and I enjoyed a few new snacks, ate at a fried chicken place well known that we avoided due to the long line and made a delicious rich beef stew in my new cast iron pot!
Continue below for the food post!
|Ramen from Ajisen Ramen, home made pork tonkatsu and garlic fried rice, 4 Finger Crispy Chicken and home made beef stew with red wine!|
|Frogs (on sale during Chinese new year in the supermarket already peeled), I made a chinese dinner with stewed frog's legs, stir fried leeks with crispy pork belly and a scrambled egg with salted pickles!|
|Another visit to the Jerry's BBQ grill near my home! My boyfriend and I shared a plate of their buffalo wings and a plate of fried goodies like cheese sticks, jalapeno peppers and pickles!|
|Ramen eaten at Ajisen Ramen! Very filling and tasty although I found the soups a tad bit diluted! Home made prawn wantons and a filling lunch of home made tonkatsus, fried garlic rice and raw cabbage/carrot salad!|
|Our two pizzas fresh out of the oven (before it died about 2 months ago) I may have put a bit too much cheese this time (being overly excited)!|
|A giant 'quarter' looking slice...it was huge and I had two and was all full and happy!|
|Matcha (green tea) snacks from my best friend whose staying in Japan now! Rice crackers and biscuits with green tea cream filling!|
|Dark chocolates filled with matcha and a match doriyaki pancake filled with sweet red bean paste!|
|A local brand's version of 'twinkies', they both were really good and I loved the chocolate version! Not too sweet and a great moist cakey texture!|
|A delicious pizza hut dinner with bowls of salads (trying to balance out the take out) with the boyfriend for a movie night at home!|
|Finally we made this delicious stew using beef cubes and tail meat! One bottle of 12 year old red wine that was still fresh, carrots, potatos, celery, whole red onions, roux and beef stock! All stewed for 5 hours in our gorgeous cast iron pot!|
|The large pieces of beef tail meat all soft and falling off the bone, the fat and cartilage so delicious to eat and the meat just completely flavored by the stock and wine! We ate our bowls of hearty beef stew with toasted chunky bread!|
Do you own a cast iron pot in your kitchen?
