I've been getting into the Christmas spirit this week. Possibly strange, given the time of year, but it's now that crafters think about getting their cards done. I had done a couple of designs before, but I saw an embossing folder that I fell in love with. So, combined with some colourcore card stock, I got to work.
Don't you love this embossing folder?
I've also been stitching. Here is the update.
broth, meat and veggies,
placed delicately in bowl
with a tea stained egg
Well, I ended up getting neither meat nor a tea stained egg, but this week was all about Wagamama's. Now, I had heard about this chain before from my very good friend Lucy, who raves about it but, like Nando's and every other half decent chain, there are none in Cornwall. I managed to get to one eventually, and ordered pork gyoza's and the yasai ramen. The food comes out when it is made, which means you may get it in a strange order. We didn't, as we had ordered the same thing.
Almost forgot to take a pic! These were nice, but the sauce was nicer than the dumplings.
The ramen was meat free. It was a Japanese omelette, some crispy silken tofu and some mushrooms, along with ramen noodles in a slightly spicy vegetable broth. I thought I would be brave and try tofu for the first time as well - that was spicy! I'm not sure of the texture though.
The one thing you don't get a grasp of by picture alone is the sheer size of the bowl. Far too big for one person, I did try my best but barely made a dent. Again it was nice, but I think it would be easy enough to do this yourself, and a lot cheaper in the bargain.
