Yakitori is something easy to make, and easy to eat. Chicken thigh is better than chicken breast for this because chicken breast tend to get dry. You can make these on the grill on hot summer day, too. Basic Teriyaki mixture: Soy sauce, Sake for same amount, and at least one table spoon of sugar. After chicken is cooked through, coat with this Teriyaki mixture!

My husband showed me a video of how to make spiral hot dogs. I will have to find the link for that! But this is my try out. What you have to do is to put skew in the middle of hot dog. Then cut in spiral. You take out skew and there! Perfect shape of spiral hot dogs! What I like about this is that when you cook hot dogs, get more yummy grazed area. JJ loves it, too. She said there is perfect spot for ketchup, too!
Since my husband has been working late these days, it is becoming a habit to make dinner to go. Today's menu is curry chicken. I learned from my frien and it is really easy and quick, and yummy! First, salt and pepper chicken thigh, then coat with flour/curry powder mix. Heat the pan and add butter and olive oil, then fry until crust is getting brown. Flip over to do the other side, cover for couple of minutes to make sure chicken is cooked through, and done! Served with your favorite sides.

I made mini burger into a little monster today! I found mini buns at the store the other day, and they are so cute! Perfect size for little hands. For fun, added goggly eyes!
This is for my husband who works late. It is a simple one today.
These could be good for kids play date, too!

Prepare Meat Mix:
First, mix one pound of ground beef and one pound of ground pork, add in one large egg, chicken stock (powder) or any soup you like, salt and pepper. When all the ingredients are mixed pretty well, add one cup of Panko bread crumbs, and about 1/4 cup of milk. Then mix evenly. Here is the basic mixture.
Now, most likely it is too much for one meal. So I make nice meat balls to freeze for later. That will be my Italian meat balls. When I cook, cook in the oven, and put tomato sauce over it!
I wanted to try this for a ling time.. Meat Bits! First, over the stove, you make small bite size meat balls and fry them. For the taste, I used a little bit of sugar, soy sauce, sake, ginger, garlic powder, cajun powder, little chili powder, and sesame oil. Yummy! This is pretty tasty. So you can eat by itself, but also good over salad, wrap, or over rice.
Here is Meat Bits Bento with fried rice.
