changes

soooo... i haven't been posting for a while because of the usual reasons. lazy. uninspired. but also because between this post and the last i have become a divorcée and obviously moved out on my own. my ex-husband and i are still on good terms and we 'share custody' of our two cats, which i am grateful for.

of course i have been cooking a lot; much more so now that i live alone. i was lucky enough to find an apartment to rent with a great location and nice kitchen with enough storage to keep all my appliances and knick knacks out of sight when not in use.

one sizeable undertaking i tried in my new apartment was to make tofu. it was a lot of work that yielded a pock-marked block of bitter tofu; not sure if it was because i used epsom salt or didn't keep it at the right temperature. however, it did have a lot of okara/biji leftover for me to work with, which tasted a lot better than the tofu. i made patties with it and froze the rest. as you can see, i've also starting making bentos again but hardcore! i started using instagram and have been harvesting a wealth of inspiration from other people's lunches from all over the world.

hopefully i can get back on the blogging horse instead of lazily posting on instagram. thanks to anyone who stuck around. ("

Hi Mina! This is Jen :) I still check out your blog occasionally and enjoy your recipes. I have gotten quite lazy with my cooking since back in the states and need to get inspired again. I tried making miso soup and thought of you. It tasted ok, but nothing like in the restaurant. Hope you are well :)
