Kimchi Chigae + Tomaten Reis + Kangkong

I decided to cook B1's favourite Kimchi Chigae (personally I hate the dish ever since the time I came home very late from school and got myself wasted with some old Korean Soju I smuggled back from Seoul and Kimchi Chigae).

As for the Tomaten Reis, it was me being lazy and pouring the contents of the dish onto the rice hahah, because I didn't want to wash another plate. Look Mommy, one dish meal! =D

Japanese Tamagoyaki

I always wanted to make Tamagoyaki because I have this preconceived notion that it is the ultimate dish to put inside a bento, which I used to make for work.

Unfortunately I didn't have the appropriate frying pan. Now that I have bought one for my new kitchen, I decided I must take it out for a test drive.

I know the desired effect is to have a golden yellow Tamagoyaki, but I like golden brown better =D
 So how? Can I be an excellent Japanese Hausfrau now hahaha?
I made Tamagoyaki (technically an inaccurate version because mine has milk and not dashi), rice with endamame, kimchi pork (chucked in some egg tofu) and vegetables suppe.Actually  the kimchi pork doesn't go that well with the soup and the egg, but I was too lazy to go downstairs to the supermarket. Yes, the supermarket is now downstairs, which is why I paid $$$$$$$ for this bloody apartment.

Simple Saturday Dinner

Haven't posted much on what is happening to myself recently. I am learning new stuff everyday, reading and making new stuff for the house (not that I am making excuses but lack of zzz is making retention of newly learnt German very schwierig) And I started violin lessons again. I guess buying an expensive violin does help reinforce the commitment to learning it. 

I have also been trying out my new kitchen. Yes, my tiny galley-like kitchen. The tiny sink is especially trying, and many a time I have been wondering how my Bruder survives his even tinier kitchen. Just cooking there three times has forced me to become a more disciplined cook, cleaning as I cook. Much to the delight of B1 who does the washing up. 

And because I am still treating the place like a chalet, I have to freeze some of the fresh produce or they will spoil. Which is why I had to wait for hours yesterday because I forgot to thaw some of the stuff before I went out. Silly.

We have been using Onkel's tiny brown chair for a dining table (Japanese-style). Ich habe Kung Pao Hänchen, Schwein Ball und Miso Suppe gekocht. B1 und ich lieben essen die Kung Pao.
