Wannabe mont blancs. They certainly look closer to the real thing than the last time, though the chestnut is inside, there's no whipped cream >_>, and the chestnut cream on top hardened a bit on the outside like normal frosting. I need to experiment some more with whipped cream, that chestnut spread (which has no chunks in it after all), and possibly butter.
Clockwise from the top: broiled salmon, simmered satoimo (from frozen), miso soup with scallops and daikon, gomoku gohan (made from a package), kabocha no umani (with some sesame seeds, and dashi replaced with chicken broth), and that there in the middle is dipping sauce for the salmon. Oh, heh heh, I forgot pickles. And I guess it would make more sense if I had some deep-fried or stir-fried thing instead of satoimo. It was still a hit. Cooking the pumpkin in chicken broth made it much easier for us Westerners to eat.
Next thing I attempt will be pumpkin flan. I have high hopes for that one.
I'd like to immerse myself in L2 until TotA gets here, but I'm trying to delete four of my characters now and they just WON'T. GO. AWAY. It's said they have one day left for more than 24 hours now. It's annoying. My options are 1. going crazy trying to enchant weapons with Irilia (and wasting money) 2. grinding with my swordsinger near giant's cave 3. grinding with my warlock near giant's cave. NOT ACCEPTABLE. Let me delete them alreadyyy. T_T
