Cooking Day and DIY Update

Okonomiyaki
I keep watching cooking animes, and every time I find something that I want to eat. This time I got a serious craving for Okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki is like the japanese equivalent to to pizza. It's a cabbage pancake with various topping. I prefer mine in the Osaka style which is the kind without noodles.

Enjoy after the jump.

DIY Rant

Who knew that pulling up a carpet and taking out the tack strips would be so much work? Certainly I didn't this morning when I endeavored to remove the most hideous hall carpet known to man. Since then I have found hardwood floor, which I am pleased about. I have broken two nails, and my feet/whole body is killing me! Maybe I'll just leave the bedroom carpeting where it is now that I've had this little experience :*(

Anime Day!

I just watched Chance Pop Session today. This show is great for a marathon afternoon. It's short, only 13 episodes, but each one is better than the next. It's about 3 girls who were separated at birth. They have a chance meeting at a concert for their idol Reika. At the concert each of the girls get an application for the same music school Reika graduated from. Eventually they learn they're related. I can't say any more or I'd spoil it. I really recommend this to the shojo fans. :D
The music stuck with me so much I just ordered the CD! I cannot say how much I am loving this show right now.

Manga Sidenote

As you know I've been watching Yumeiro Patissiere. I am in total LOVE with that show. I recently found a manga that reminds me a lot of it called Kitchen Princess. This is seriously one of the best Shojo mangas I've read this year. Najika Kazami, has a special talent. She can recreate any dish that she tastes perfectly from memory. Not only is the art so cute the food looks delicious! There's even recipes for some of the things prepared in each chapter. YUM! Please read this manga :D

What I'm up to

I've been on an anime binge lately. Any chance I get I've been trying to finish off the seasons that won't die. The first example of this is me trying to watch bleach from the beginning T_T I don't think I'll ever win that battle.... I've also begun Inu Yasha. At least it's not airing anymore so I don't have to keep up with new episodes. ^-^;; Thanks for little miracles.
I'm still going through Cardcaptor Sakura, Ojamajo Doremi, and Yumeiro Patissiere. Something new to the mix though is Uraboku. I'm watching it on Crunchyroll and really love it. The end is near and I'm really hoping for a good finish. It reminds me a lot of X or Tokyo Babylon.

I'm working on some new sweets recipes so stay tuned for something yummy.
That's it right now except for some K-dramas I've been eyeing. I'm not sure if I'll pick them up, but it's so tempting. ♥
