Chicken Katsu!

I love chicken katsu because there is no precise measuring needed at all. If attention and care is given, you really can't mess this one up. This recipe can also be substituted with beef or pork and still taste great. Restaurants tend to have their chicken very thin, to reduce cooking time and risk of undercooked chicken, but in the kitchen, you can have your meat a bit thicker for more substance.

-flour, salt, pepper
-whole egg
-panko bread crumbs
-cooking oil

Making Sushi

Sushi is an art form of a food. It involves a lot of technique, of which I learned on my own from books, videos online, and friends. Meaning that I am not professionally instructed. I love sushi, but learning how to make it informs me if I'm overpaying at the restaurant.

Fun fact: sushi is actually pronounced zushi in Japanese.

First, cook the rice as you normally would. A rice cooker should be fine. The rice should not be burned nor mushy

Friday, October 22

Each Friday to Sunday from the last week of September to October is Oktoberfest! It's celebrated in various areas since, we're nowhere near Germany. I went to the Alpine Village location in Torrance this night and had a great time. It was with Fornia and her friends when they were in the study abroad program in Germany. We got there early around 6 to avoid the long lines later and stayed until 12ish. I took some photos of the night, but it only encompassed the first few hours when I was capable to take clear pictures.

smaller cups for fun all around
