So I’ve recently been very inspired (by Pinterest no less) to put more effort into Fighter’s meals. He eats well enough but I figure by making his food cuter, he’ll be more inclined to master eating with utensils rather than his fingers, and be more willing to try new foods.
So I went and got myself a bunch of cute food-making tools. Cutters and moulds and presses, decorative picks and even a cute elephant shaped wooden plate.
He’s not a big fan of eggs and he automatically refuses all round white objects thinking they’re eggs. -_- So I theorized that if I made eggs unrecognizable to him. he’d try them and realize how yummy they really are. And hopefully he’d be an egg lover convert wtf.
Thought I’d make some tamagoyaki *casually
I already have all the ingredients – eggs, dashi, mirin, sugar, soy sauce – and it doesn’t look too hard. At least the recipe says it’s not hard wtf.
Even have my own little helper! He was super excited watching me crack eggs and very eagerly helped me dump in measured ingredients hehehe.
Basically the recipe calls for mixing the eggs and seasoning together, then pouring the egg mixture into a frying pan. When the egg starts to set, I should roll it up using chopsticks or a spatula. Easy peasy.
NOT. FML. Egg keeps breaking up! My motor skills suck or what ah with chopsticks also cannot, spatula also cannot roll nicely.
I was starting to think this is actually a recipe for scrambled eggs wtf.
Why is it every time I make food and it turns out ugly it always looks like a penis?! This one some more like charred and belonging to a zombie.’
Got look better if I cut it up? Feel free to lie.
I salvaged some dignity by using my new panda mould to make a cute rice panda. You know, to make up for all that d*ck egg. T____T
How? The egg can pretend is bamboo?
Oh well baby steps hahaha.
More cooking adventures coming soon wtf.
P/S: I know what I did wrong already anyway. I should have used a non-stick pan instead of a steel one, and put the heat on lower. And not added too much dashi cos the egg was mega salty sorry, kidneys. -_-
Original recipe from here.
