it is definitely freakin autumn

oh yes. it certainly is decorative gourd season, motherfucker.

that is a bit of a misnomer as these tiny little pumpkins are edible. i found them at the last farmer's market of the year. and, oh my yes, those are black futsu! i have been looking for those for quite a while!

here are the two that i bought.

it's possible that i might decorate them but more than likely one of them will end up in a curry. or maybe chocolate pumpkin muffins.

you can call me basic all you fucking want, i'll just laugh at you. 'cause 1) please. let me eyeroll at you some more. 2) get some updated slams ("slams" lol) 3) pumpkins are the fucking bomb.

also bombish are chocolate chip cookies if you make them the right way. (i did, rah rah rah)

and motherfucking kare pan.

made the curry roux for the curry inside. delicious.

also threw together a place to read just off the kitchen with some furniture that we hadn't donated yet.

it's cozy but the cats have taken it over. they're doing a lot more sleeping now that this bullshit is back.

god, washington state. i fucking hate this place. you are well aware. it is hideous on so many fucking levels.

not hideous, my dad's old solid state radio that he sent to me last week.

also the fact that random teenagers and children will pick flowers for me on occasion.

 yeah, i don't understand that either.

a package from japan!

as part of a bday treat, leff ordered us a few things from japan! from top l, going clockwise-- rice seasoning! A NEW DAGASHI PACK, TWO POPPIN COOKIN CANDY RAMEN SETS, avo cheetos and ORANGE FLAVORED CHIPS!!! 

(not pictured: onigiri molds)

i will have a post each for the ramen sets and the dagashi (dagashi 1.0 can be seen here). what follows is where i confess my absolute adoration of these orange chips.

the orange flavor in this bag is not too sweet, definitely not cloying. it is almost as if someone had squeezed a fresh navel orange over top of some nicely salted, perfectly crunchy chips. SO GOOD will order again!

the avo cheetos tho. eh....

here's the thing. in my experience, cheetos from japan are much less greasy and not quite as crunchy as american ones. more similar in mouthfeel to the baked variety that can be purchased here. these were very mildly flavored. which, i suppose should be expected from avocado. idk, maybe i eat avos with too much salt and lime juice to not expect a hint of tartness. *shrug*

would probably not order these again. would still eat them if they were offered.

our package came with some free glasses.

i wore them while i was drinking a matcha latte out of my jiji mug.

have i mentioned that i figured out how to make matcha lattes? hahahahahahaaaaaaaaa yeah, just one cookbook has great ideas/recipes.

posts for ramen candy sets, dagashi 2.0, halloween in the pipeline. lol the pipeline. i am so tired of tech bullshit. XD
