Pepper Lunch | Japan

It is now a Hanami season in Japan (during March and April) and for many Japanese, this is the best time of year. The cherry blossom (sakura) trees all over Japan come in to bloom for about seven to ten days. This is also a great time for people to hold outdoor parties to view the sakura. The name “Hanami” says it all, hana means “flower” and mi is “to look”.

 

3 Layer Electric Mini Rice Cooker

I bought a mini rice cooker lately, although I have slow cooker, rice cooker and some other types of cookers, I still decided to buy this mini rice cooker, reason is to cook baby porridge in faster and easier way. I had tried to use slow cooker to cook porridge, it took about 3 hours to get ready. Product description: 3 layer cooker come with timer, can cook rice, porridge and baby porridge. The timer function is very useful as we can set it to start cook at preferable time. I first try to cook lunch for Camus and myself before start to use it cook for baby. This is the first meal I cooked with the new cooker, ready marinate beef bought from AEON, steam pumpkin and rice. Simple meal enough for two. Second try with baby porridge, less than 1 hour to get it done, easy to clean too. You can manually set the time to cook longer or shorter (default setting at 55 minutes for baby porridge). Avocado with sweet potato baby porridge I did re-heat baby porridge for dinner too, by changing the setting to cook for 12 minutes. In summary, I really love this mini rice cooker with it's timer, easy to clean, easy to carry and fast to cook functions.

I saw a very cute mini red apple when I am shopping in OIOI shopping complex last weekend. I was looking for various kind of fruits at that time and unexpectedly I saw those mini apples. I was so excited and thinking to buy it but at the end I walked back with empty hands as we were too hungry and rushing for dinner.

I was regretted for not buying the mini apples and keep thinking on the cute apple for few days. Frown Yesterday after work, on the way back home, we stopped by a shop to buy fruit. Out of expectation, we saw the cute apple again. Without further consideration, we walked to the counter with a pack of mini apple. Yee hee.. A pack of 14 apples cost 298yen, which is about RM11.

 

To me, the reason I bought the apple is because they are cute, but in fact I don't really like apple. The BIG red apples in Japan have never attract my attention but I just love those cute mini apples.

The most excited thing after bought the apples was the photo session, I managed to capture the cute mini apples with my camera. Aren't they cute?

Aroma: very light.
Taste: sweet and slightly sour.
Texture: mealy

Other than the size, there is nothing special about the applesTongue out. I believed it is more suitable to use them to make apple pie, tart or jam due to the mealy texture. Anyway, I just like it. Hehe Kiss

I like eating small apples. Just at times when I don't feel like eating the big apples, I know I can finish this size of apple.
