You know, I have been watching one Youtube channel that has me fixated. Yuka Kinoshita. Japanese competitive eater. She's cute. She's pretty. And boy, can she eat!
I thought I was a big eater but beside Yuka, I am nothing. I am just like a little cicak. I have watched her eat 5 rotisserie chicken, 4 buckets of KFC and outeat 2 pro wrestlers.
I am so
inspired impressed. Itadakimasu! That's her battle cry before she digs in. And then she goes mmmmmmm!!!. Watching her eat will make you hungry.
I am so
So what's with the Ajitama? That actually started off with me googling for ramen. These flavored eggs with soft runny yolks are served with ramen. I love eggs and I love soft runny centers. Then I started looking for the recipe.
I have made three attempts so far but have yet to perfect that soft center. I will keep trying until I get my magic number of minutes to boil the egg. I've tried 6 minutes (whites surrounding yolks still not set) and 6 minutes 50 seconds (yolks 90% set, arrrrghh!!!!).
These eggs are delicious. I have been taking them to work (two a day) as snacks for when I get peckish in the afternoons. No more popping over to Boite A Bijoux for a bun or two (sometimes three, hah!) because those carbs made me put on weight.
|Misshapen egg. The eggs are soft and I crammed them all into a small container.|
