Another sombre ceremony. Aoki-sensei was crying from the very beginning and then again in the middle of reading the students' names and then at the end when they said they loved him and thanks. A lot of the girls were crying through the ceremony too. Jesus! It's not like you're moving countries, never to see each other again. God. Good anyway. And now pic spam!

It's only 2:44. I think I will nap. I think I'll postpone my run tomorrow because it's windy as fuck outside and looks like it's going to rain. Don't start bad habits, Heather! I should try and go tomorrow morning before meeting Tomoko or before meeting Tempei except I don't know when he wants to go out. If that doesn't work, Sunday. Just do it!

Bugger me

My nap turned into a 4-hour sleep.

I hope this doesn't fuck me over tonight completely.

I have no dish soap so it's a disposable conbini dinner tonight.

It's been a while since I posted any recipes. I know I had a few I wanted to write up but can't remember what they were anymore. I have been having fun making mushi-pan (steamed bread)! It's the only baking I can do because I don't have an oven.

Brown Sugar Chocolate Mushi-pan

Ingredients for 8:
100g  brown sugar
200g  (weak) flour
2 tsp  baking powder
190~200ml  milk
pinch of salt
milk chocolate, chopped (or chocolate chips)

  1. In a bowl, sift together flour and baking powder. 
  2. Add sugar and milk, whisking together.  Batter should be relatively thick and smooth.
  3. Spoon mixture into lined muffin cups until just over half full and top with chopped pieces of chocolate. 
  4. Arrange in the steamer and cover the lid with a cloth to keep water from dripping on the mushi-pan.  Steam over high heat for 10~12 minutes.
Original recipe here.

Matcha Mushi-pan

Ingredients for 5:
100g  pancake mix
1  egg
3 tbsp  milk
2 tsp  matcha powder
60g  sugar
(sugared beans -- I don't like beans so I used chocolate but it didn't work very well.)

  1. In a bowl, combine the egg, milk and sugar with a whisk.
  2. Add the pancake mix and matcha, stirring well.  Batter should be thick and smooth.  Add more matcha if you like!
  3. Spoon mixture into lined aluminum muffin cups.  If you fill each cup 3/4 full, you can stretch the batter to make 6.
  4. Arrange in the steamer and cover the lid with a cloth to keep water from dripping on the mushi-pan.  Steam over high heat for 12~15 minutes.
Original recipe here.

Both recipes take no time to prepare at all!  I tried another recipe for the brown sugar one but it didn't work out well.  That was before I got a proper scale so maybe I should try again.  Mushi-pan is quite dense but both of these recipes are come out really moist and soft and おいちい~  If you've got a steamer at home, give them a try!  All you need is something to rest the mushi-pan on over boiling water.  I have one that fits into a pot (a) or you can get inserts that are also used to steam vegetables (b).
