Hot dog it's the 4th of July [Jul. 4th, 2005|04:41 pm]
[Current Music |imagining Hyde singing HappyBirthday to Gackt]

^-^ Wonderful photo from jmtimages *~chu~*

*-* Liv's new Ark flash design is so lovely...click click! >>>

This heatwave has been rather torturous on produce.. I've been craving fruit (which is odd for me) but so far everything has tasted more or less like plastic - (except some Michigan cherries that were really good..) So what to cook with when all your produce looks rather wilted? Ah ..firecracker tofu.

Heat oil in wok with garlic & ginger - add dried red chili peppers, chili paste - ..then after a minute add a lb of cubed tofu with 1/3 cup water/veg broth, 2 tbs shoyu (soy sauce), 2 tsp sesame oil After a minute add 1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 tsp cold water..

I also made beef 'seitan' with broccoli - (Seitan is also called gluten , it's made from the protein part of wheat & is popular in vegetarian Buddhist cooking. Seitan can look like this: http://www.galaxia-alfa.com/receitas/images/articles/seitanbatatas I make my Seitan in a pressure cooker & it's very easy.. anyone wants a recipe I'll post it.)
Best of all - Leigh really liked it and had the leftovers for lunch today ^-^

^-^ Hyde is writing the themesong for the Japanese version of "Stealth" (Out in USA July, Oct in Japan)

Hi there, would you mind adding me back? I've been visiting your journal lately for L'Arc/Hyde updates, and have also been looking at past entries and collecting all of the fabulous "spam" images you post. Thanks so much for all of your hard work!

When I went to Kyoto there was this restaurant where all they served was tofu and it was more than one kind. I was flabbergasted at how many different kinds of tofu there was and the ways to eat it. It was an expensive restaurant too. I guess that's what Kyoto is famous for. O_o

hyde is writing the theme song for "Stealth"? How lovely!!! I wanted to see that movie in theaters because it looks better than that War of the Worlds. But it's a little eerie plot-wise, because our technology is getting out of hand if that ever happens. >_
