More Vegemite!

As I told here I got Vegemite from some friends. I found out that I really love it! Especially with toasties from Golden Toast.
Unfortunatly 145g are soon eaten and as I also gave some away, the end was coming fast.

So I ordered some more! Luckily there are a lot of possibilities to order special food via internet in Germany. I also ordered some Marmite, which is british. I'm curious tasting it.

I have always been the type to prefer salty and spicy stuff instead of sweet. And I like the strong salty taste of these yeast extracts.

New T-Shirts!

This time I made some more.

Watched by a huge black cat!

First time I made sushi at home was on 1. May 2007, together with a friend. This is the second time I made sushi. Again with a friend for visit. It is a nice thing to do and fun if doing it with someone else.

I had sushi rice, nori, rice vinegar, wasabi, soy sauce and of course the bamboo mat to roll it. For the filling we had cucumber, an avocado, a carrot and smoked salmon. The carrot we steamed, the cucumber we used raw. And the avocado was forgotten... Well, this is our result:

Five neat looking rolls of Maki sushi. We ate them with chopsticks, wasabi and soy sauce.

I have to realize that the taste of wasabi is very different to the hot spices I know. Red hot you have to clean your nose. Green hot simply blowes through and hurts.
But I love hot food!

Bye bye Hachi!

Hachi (in the coconut, right), is my first little mouse which went over the rainbow bridge. The medis which I gave her over the last two weeks didn't show any bettering. But she was tough and till the end she loved her wafers and walked around in her paradise on earth. 

Farewell my dear.
