Well, no dessert cooking trials for me this week since we got a box of Japanese chocolates in the mail.
We don't know why Sak's parents decided to send us chocos, but my guess is that it's a "sorry-BIL's-still-living-with-you" gift. Peace offering? Ha... Well, I will say that they do know both our weaknesses well. Me = something I can eat. Sak = chocolate.
Anyway, I really like Japanese chocolates because they are not nearly as sweet as your standard Hershey's bar. I can eat a whole lot more of these types in one sitting before feeling sick. I guess that could be a bad thing too!
And, to celebrate Pocky Day (today! 11-11!), we've got some Salty Pocky. I think it's a new flavor?
Because nothing says Asian quite like added sodium.
Salty pocky was really good though. I wonder if I could just dip a normal Pocky stick in salt and save myself the trouble of finding it again?
And obviously more important than Pocky Day, it is also Veterans Day. Thank you vets for your service and for helping keep us safe here! May you enjoy plenty of Pocky today!
