Cooking.

Okay, so... I did some cooking tonight! I went with an asian style dinner, and now I have left overs ready for lunch and dinner for the next few days. :9 This is part of my very serious attempt to get a lot better at cooking. I made riceballs with smoked salmon (with a home made marinade, and some of them with avocado), and spicy shoyu ramen.

Pictures are as follows:

The shoyu ramen recipe was given to me (it was located here)! But the riceballs were a recipe I got in college, and I haven't made them since then, so I'm really surprised I remembered the recipe.

I used 1 1/2 cups of rice,
a teaspoon of rice vinegar
a pinch of sugar

for the rice.

Then, for the salmon, next time I'll probably try to find fresh salmon, so the smoked taste doesn't overwhelm the marinade, which is honey, soy sauce, and teriyaki sauce mixed together to cover the salmon. Let it marinate for about 30 minutes, though it can be done longer.

All in all? It actually came out really well, for someone who made this WAY too late, and was completely inexperienced.

And I'll have dinner for as long as I want it, tbh. At least the next week or so, with the parts left over from the ramen. And I've got a new website to browse for some recipes (I'm eyeing the chicken masala recipe)...

I'll have to show some of my other successful recipes. I made a chicken with mushroom cream sauce the other day that tasted WAY better 3 days in the fridge later than it did the night I made it. Makes me really glad I didn't toss the whole thing when I was tempted to... Ahem. Anyway, yes. spamming my cooking. +_+

One of my new year's resolutions is to practice cooking a lot! And I've been pretty varied in the things I've cooked, even if they've. mostly been chicken recipes. I can't help it. I love chicken. |D;;

Anyway, last post of the night. I think it's about time to hit the sack.

From the New York Times:

The Syrian government said that Israeli warplanes had carried out an airstrike inside its territory on Wednesday, raising the risks that the two-year-old civil conflict in Syria could spread beyond the country’s borders.

This is just becoming more and more of a mess, isn't it? I have a feeling once Afghanistan ends, they'll be pushing us all to Turkey or Cyprus. I would place money on that right now, actually. Argh. Plus, the reports that the Syrian Army HAS used chemical weapons. Though I think those have been discredited now?

Ironically, I haven't been following this very closely. I guess I just don't want to know.
