Behind the scene at Yas' Meat house.

Another quick post!

I had never ever even imagined myself really looking forward to going to my dentist. Yes, to extract wisdom tooth – you know how it’d go afterwards. I’m more than happy to pull them out myself without anaesthetic at this point… Call me crazy, but I can’t wait for Monday. No more throbbing pain by wisdom tooth!! (oh wait, another wisdom teeth is scheduled 2 wks after that.)

SO. My plan is to eat and enjoy as much as I can before next Monday. Unfortunately things are pretty hectic, and 4 out of 6 occasions had to be missed out. So the last weekend was fully spent to catch up my friends and redeem my social life (if that ever exists ;p ) And here’s how it went on the last Sunday evening.

gyoza1
Can you tell what’s under the moisten kitchen paper?

gyoza2
Yes! Another home made Gyoza!

Well, I didn’t make them late at night this time, thank you very much. But my room sure looked like 2am alright. (All the celling lights have burnt out all at once and I can’t replace them myself!) My friends, Mayuri, Hisae and Lily were on their way to my place, but they were about one hour late. I went ahead and made 30 of them before they arrived. And shortly after they finally arrived, my kitchen turned into this.

gyoza5
Gyoza factory. It sure made us feel like we were only making 2 cents per dumpling at a sweatshop. ;p Well, this must be pretty much how it would look when I do my late night cooking though. Sad.

gyoza4
Carrot and orange salad with mustard & caramelised balsamic dressing.

gyoza3
A bit of break while the factory owner is away. Come back everyone, he’s coming back!!

gyoza6
We made 90 Gyoza – and we ate most of them. *burp*

gyoza_all
Thai flavoured frid rice by Hisae, Buta Shabu Goma salad (Pork belly shabu shabu with sesame dressing.) and, well, didn’t quite turned out as great as Ellie’s, but rockmelon sago pudding for dessert.

Another week has started. I’m only hoping to get by fine until Monday with Nurofen plus. ughhhhhhh.

(Thanks Lily for missing pictures!)

  2. Gambatte with your wisdomm tooth! I think I had phantom sympathy wisdom pains but mine has now gone down again (it does that). And 90 gyozas? WOW! They look perfect-I think you’ll make some superb gyoza workers :P

  7. Gyoza!!! Wish I can taste them. You are so humble. I am sure your sago dessert turned out equally nice!!

  9. It never ceases to amaze me the food that comes out of your kitchen, as much of a sweatshop it looked like this time around :)

    Such professional looking gyoza. I imagine that they would have tasted so good!

  10. I had all 4 wisdom teeth out at the same time, but I was put to sleep. When I came out I couldn’t talk for 3 days! It was hell, not the pain, the not talking! Well I’m a woman, what can you say…

    Food looks great!! I love gyoza too!

  11. @KennyT
    Hehe Gyoza skin package contains 30 x 3. Dangerous stuff!

    @Lorraine
    Arigato Lorraine! hehe contagious wisdom pains!
    Now we all know where I make extra 2 cents per dumpling LOL

    @Betty
    Simply calculated, 22 gyoza per person! Oh wait, that’s not too many isn’t it….?

    @Helen
    Ohhh yes, though the one by Ellie was the best tasting! I can’t replicate the taste!

    @Chocolatesuze
    We make them, eat them. Simply programmed to do so… LOL

    @FFIchiban
    MEATHOUSE named after your comment! I like the sound of it, it’s like… fantasy world.

    @Ellie
    I don’t know if it was a bit firm rockmelon that I got, but the texture was totally different! Yours is by far the best!

    @Clekitty
    Our gyoza making skill has improved than ever lol
    Oh the nomination goes for EST team, hope they’ll win!

    @Simon
    Hehehe thanks! I’m actually good at making the filling for gyoza! Ordinary Japanese dumplings are not seasoned much (as you dip them in a soy sauce anyway.) but I usually season them mildly so they taste good as is.

    @Kelly
    Ahh Kelly from tastyjapan! Thanks for dropping by!
    Haha, but that’s the best way to be done isn’t it? Without all the fear of tooth being extracted! Hope mine goes smooth… brr.
