What does one do on a rainy Sunday while obsessing over TK armor? Draw some stormtroopers, of course . . .
It came today! My consolation prize for donating to the Kickstarter Project: ‘Build A Statue Of ROBOCOP In Detroit’.I love it so much and I wanted to share with everyone. You’ll be seeing it soon on an Aaron Farmer torso near you! :D
So I found a killer in-depth recipe for cold zaru soba noodles a ways back. A couple months ago I picked up the supplies at Nijiya Market in Japan Town. It’s been a lovely summer’s day (and end to my amazing hermit staycation) and what a better day to execute my first attempt at cooking soba at home. I had the green onions, seaweed, soba tsuyu, some ice cold Sapporo, and a bunch of different kind of soba, all ranging from the cheap stuff to the expensive, 100% buckwheat noodle. I strategically chose the cheap stuff, seeing as this was my first attempt.
It came out OK. Not bad but a little too al dente (probably because I’m an al dente snob when it comes to Italian pasta – does not translate well to soba). And the tsuyu sauce was off balance. Gonna try a few things different next time but I will not stop making it til I make it perfect! All my favorite noodle joints are too far away!
