Adventure in Dinner

[Sweet potatoes sauteed in butter with ginger and salt]

So, my housemate Julian who normally does the cooking, is gone for the summer! But Simon and I remain, as he's working a sales job and I'm interning at the Immunology lab at school.

Do I look legit or what? Well, this is only in the case that I have to go to the mouse room, which is where guess what, the mice are kept. But yeah, it's an unpaid internship but I'm learning a lot and everyone at the lab is really friendly and helpful.

So onto my main point, my summer blog will probably feature a lot of food and not so much in terms of lolita, which costs a lot of money, which I won't be earning, what with the aforementioned unpaid internship. But if something interesting crops up I'll probably post about it anyway.

[Pad Thai with Sugar snap peas: delicious sugar snap peas, although I cheated and the pad thai sauce did come from a jar...]
So, while I prepare dinner anywhere from 5-7 days a week, I'll take some pictures and some disasters or successes and yammer on about them, because honestly I could talk about food forever.

Curry! I love all forms of curry, including coconut milk base and other types, but my favorite is probably japanese curry, if only because that's what I grew up with and it's a comfort food. And easy! Although I wish I had yellow pickled radish to go with it...

Anyway tune in next time for "dinner or disaster?" because I am entirely convinced one day my stove will just implode or something.


  1. Hnggghhh sweet potatoes! Also, I am so ashamed to admit that I have not yet tried Pad Thai. I know right?!

  2. Oh man this all looks so yummy ;=;

  3. Congrats on an internship! Unfortunately, I do not have summer classes or an internship so I'll just be working all summer.

    Sweet potatoes <333

    I look forward to your summer entries! They look and sound so makes me want to cook something!

  4. LOVE curry--I've never had any of the coconut based types, though. I like coconut well enough, by my big baby of a partner can't stand it. :P

  5. Hi darling! I really like your blog!
    I hope that you will follow mine too ^^.

  6. That looks so deliciousssss. <3
