Bean Recipe Contest

Last week I took total of 3 days off, so it was kind of busy yesterday at work...

Funny, but I didn't feel like going to the gym so I skipped. In this way, I might work out hard the next time, though!

On 12/12, I attended the bean cook-off, which I have been trying for 3 years! 10 people were selected from among 2000 applicants!!! I should be glad to go to the finals... but I received an honorable mention, which made me feel bit frustrated because it means "not chosen" :(

By the way, my recipe is 5-A in the left image: "Deep-Fried Tofu Stuffed Triple Beans Minced Cutlet".

After all, there's a bunch of task! I thought I should have submitted the other recipes, etc... You know what I mean!?

Anyway, this contest was on a high level! There were many to learn from the participants, who seem to attend this kind of cook-off regularly!

Oh boy. It is freezing today. I saw a thick frost this morning! The temp dropped down to the high 49F (10C)!

Stay warm everybody!!!

  1. Hi Ochi,

    You were the top ten of 2 thousand, amazing! At least you were able to participate in the contest. Your dish looks so good, wish I could sample it! :)

    P.S. We were at 60 degrees today, going down to 30 tomorrow! What a tease the weather has been.

  2. Konnichiwa Ochi San!
    For me,your are the BEST!
    even though,you are not in the top.

    Maybe it's not your time now,maybe next time.

  3. Konnichiwa jo,

    But thanks for your words!!!

    Oh! We have the same climate!

    Dress in several layers! Better hot than cold ;)
