#1 Cooking Post - Sushi and Inari dinner.

Today I did a slight Halloween/Autumn spin on a Japanese meal!

Wasabi (bought in a tube)

Inari pouches (pre-soaked) with seasoning flakes and rice wine vinegar (came all in a packet..)

Aubergine fried in oil and soy sauce with toasted sesame seeds

cucumber, spring onion and sweetcorn sushi
(Nori bought flat, sushi rice cooked in wine vinegar again)

Pumpkin: Cooked in bread-crumbs, sugar, sesame seeds and wine vinegar.

Poor pumpkin!
Also served satay chicken cooked by robyn (I can't cook meat at all)
All in all a sucessful meal, we did finish all of it so can't have been that bad!
Whole thing cost £20 and fed seven people.
If i could change anything i would have baked the pumpkin or boiled then fried it in cubes.

Nine trains but i'd do it again to see you guys.

Spent two days in Birmingham with the wonderful Amelie.
Had a really relaxing time up there.
We had lunch at a crepe/pancake cafe (cute no?)
And look at the leaves! Autumn really does rock.
I also went to Bristol and met up with Pippa and then to Taunton to see my (boyfriend) Paul and my mommy who's planning her winter wedding.
I think i forget how nice it is to catch up with friends even if it means getting a total of 9 trains in four days and being shattered by the end of it.
Oh and of course it was good to come home to the cult house and see everyone again even after four days of being away.
And having sebastian (The cat) sleep on my bed.

A Tea Party and the Birth of Cult25

You ask what students do these days?
Well, look no further for I am about to give you the horrifying answers.

We throw Tea parties and start cults.
yes indeed.
Not just any Tea parties, but a seven course Dessert-feast.

Rundown of the food:
  • Tia Maria hot-chocolate with whipped cream
  • Clotted cream and strawberry jam fairy cakes
  • Stir-fry veg and rice with spring rolls
  • Frozen peach yogurt in a teacup
  • Blamange? In Raspberry and Strawberry
  • Christmas pudding
  • Lemon and white chocolate cheesecake
We decided it was about time to start a cult.
We do not worship anyone, or kill people (well...), but we do make really good cake.

After our Tea Party we took a walk down to the beach where we burned candles and chanted to Satan (duhh)...
Interested in joining us?
We will soon have a blog up and running.
It's not ready quite yet but it will be soon so don't lose hope.
We do accept body parts and bribes to join.

Joints and Limbs

Yesterday I went to London and visited two museums,
The first was Hunterians museum, which is a college surgical museum.
and the other was Pollocks toy museum.

It seems like an odd mix (dolls and severed limbs and fetus babies suspended in formaldehyde...)
But both fit my uni project of dolls, joints, limbs and deformity.
fetus babies in jars, yep...fucked up...
But to cheer you up:
just me then...

They're watching you in your sleep...

Mad as a March Hare!

I have a logo, woo how exciting, and despite being a clothing design student i can't say the hare speaks much for myself (though mad as a march hare comes to mind)...

In other news, i baked a pumpkin, cashew, honey and mushroom tart last night.
TERRIBLY EXCITED about pumpkins being in season again!

Images will follow.
