tempura dogs

we had tempura dogs this morning. why? idk, choose your own answer 1) i have a lot of tempura batter/panko that i need to use up before we move 2) hate myself/want to die 3) they are delicious 4) cubs home opener tonight.

(answers: 1, 3, 4)

want to make them yourself? k. dry off some hot dogs (batter sticks better), dip them in tempura batter and then panko them.

fry in 350 f/177 c oil, 1 min each side. (so, like, 4 min total.)

drain on paper towels, put on bun with garnish. we had cabbage, ginger and wasabi mayo.

mangez, etc. oishii desu ne! darn fuckin tootin.

spring and the cat

we're nearing the end of sakura season in these parts. our rainier cherry and damson plum have or are starting to flower/ed.

it creates a pretty nice view, if i say so myself.

the crab apple trees are also starting to bloom. maybe i'll take some pictures of them. who knows.

peel has been driving me insane this spring. she has decided that this is the year that she wants to go outside. (she is 16. 16 and nuts.)

we have had to compromise. there is no way in hell she is ever going to be an outdoor cat.
