They’ve encased him in Carbonite…frosted Carbonite, with sprinkles. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the frosting process, that is.

Falcontoys combined the iconic image of Han Solo frozen in Carbonite with frosted toaster pastries to create a limited edition art toy called “Pop-Art: Frosted Han Solo.” Each Frosted Han Solo is cast in resin, hand-painted, and packaged in a re-sealable clamshell package with (non)nutritional info printed on the back.

While these resin toaster pastries may look like the real thing, Falcontoys assures us they sure don’t taste it. So let’s hope no one tries to put Han into the toaster.

Butternut Sage Pasta Sauce

Alright, here’s my butternut squash pasta sauce recipe I made to-day. Quick, no oven-baking involved, tomato-less, garlic-less, sweet and savory.

I based it off of this Food Network recipe but used ingredients that are actually in my kitchen, and added a few rehydrated shiitake mushrooms because I like them and no one could stop me. (The flavor blended in really well, lovely savory aftertaste.) All amounts approximate, tweak as desired.

Ingredients:

  • 2-3T olive oil
  • 1/3c chopped sweet onion
  • 1 lg butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and chopped in small cubes
  • salt & fresh ground pepper (I used rainbow peppercorns, it was nice)
  • 1c chicken stock, warm
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1-2T rubbed sage
  • dash of nutmeg
  • 3 shiitake mushrooms, rehydrated and chopped
  • parmesan cheese for garnish

Sauté onions in olive oil for a few minutes until translucent. (I cook them to death cause that’s the only way I can eat them.) Add butternut squash and salt & pepper. Caramelize for a few minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add chicken stock, mushrooms, bay leaf, nutmeg, sage. Cook down until squash is tender but firm, about 8 minutes.

Remove bay leaf and puree with regular or immersion blender.

Serve over gnocchi or pasta, garnished with parmesan cheese.

There isn’t anything to say, yesterday mom was saying she’s going to take me to hospital to get sectioned, tonight my ex broke up with me, mom is now screaming downstairs, I’m crying and wanting to die basically.

Bottled - A Haikyuu!! food zine

As some of you might’ve known from my tumblr/twitter/instagram feeds, I have been working on a lot of food themed Haikyuu!! artworks lately, and I am very pleased to announce that I have compiled them into this zine!

A collection of food themed Haikyuu!! fan arts, painted using watercolors.  Pre-order starts from August 15th 2015 and ends on September 15th  2015. The books will take approximately two weeks to be made, and shipping will start from late September 2015.

There are two options available, Feast Bundle and book only.

Feast Bundle will contain:

  • A5 sized book
  • 30 full color pages printed on 150 gsm art paper.
  • Soft cover with perfect binding.
  • Contains 26 illustrations.
  • Bundle will contain two macaron buttons, one prism bookmark, and one egg stickers sheet. (prism bookmark looks like this: https://twitter.com/getmeds/status/625467295268089856)
  • Macaron buttons options are Kageyama & Hinata, Suga & Daichi, Kuroo & Kenma, and Oikawa & Iwaizumi.

Book only bundle will contain:

  • One Bottled book
  • One egg stickers sheet

I ordered the prism bookmarks from abroad, and they might take some time to arrive in where I live. If things don’t go according to schedule, shipment might start from early October instead. I am very sorry for the uncertainty, but I hope the final product will be worth the wait. :)
