My Accomplishments

It is cloudy today. The temperature is not that high but very humid! I hate taking a crowded train on a humid day like this!!! I always listen to my iPod to be in my own world.

My supervisor is quite an eccentric person. He was concentrating on his stuff, so he ignored about the planned meeting... I know he didn't forget about it. He just didn't mention. He is a person who cares less about the others :(

Anyway, the below are the results of my recent work.

On June 12th, my pink colored sushi won the jury's special award at a photo contest that asked for sakura (pink) colored photos that make people happy. I rolled anago (conger eel) and nanohana (field mustard) with sushi rice colored pink with sakura denbu (which is pink colored & seasoned shredded codfish). It is kind of complicated but it was organized by LENA JAPON at edita community's monitor plaza. Now the contests are everywhere in a wide variety of subjects on the web, used as a promotional tool!

Then on June 14th, my tortilla sushi recipe (sushi rice gives a rich taste!) won a prize at MUJI's contest using their food products. They have some flour products that can easily make pancakes, pizza dough, tortillas etc.. Also, they have many varieties of sauce products such as salsa, cheese, anchovy olive etc... They asked people to combine both and create new recipes.

Then on June 16th, my recipe and other user's recipe using heinz's demiglace sauce and white sauce products were published to the Cookpad's site! They have a project asking their users to try those selected recipes to win prizes. It is an interesting promotional strategy.
I made a gravy sauce using the demiglace sauce and put it in the heart shaped mashed potatoes.

I thought I won't be able to write my diary, but I could!
Gotta go now! Good night.

  1. Hi Ochi,

    We are much colder here only in the 60's, glad to get away from the high humidity we had.

    Your presentation is always so pretty. My mom was that way, she could make things look so perfect.
    I never ate eel, but your sushi looks very appetizing. Your tortilla looks really good with the vegetables.

    Your mashed potatoe hearts are so cute. No wonder you win, you do good work! I can tell you put a lot of effort into presentation. Very nice! :)

  2. Hello jo! There are many creative homemakers in Japan!!! I guess your mother is one :)

    I am glad you liked my work but others are great, too. I need to improve many things.

    The way you comment on my work is like my college (art) teacher.
    I feel I can do it ;)

  3. Hi Ochi,

    You can do anything you put your mind too. Just don't let anyone discourage your wonderful work! It is modern time for women! :)

  4. Thank you jo!

    I will create my best!
    I like this hobby because I can forget about my Mickey Mouse job!
