For the lil bitchtits who want every single croquette recipe listed on one convenient little post. This one’s for you, babes:
Cheesy Potato
Creamy Corn
Creamed Crab
Creamy Imitation Crab
Tips and Tricks to making the croquettes look more similar to the ones on KLK (they can also help you tell the various croquette fillings apart):
Lightly fry a whole crab stick and stick them into various croquettes.
Stick cute little Japanese flag toothpicks in some of them
paint little Mako faces onto some of the croquettes with the tonkatsu sauce
If you’re on another level of weeabbooism and weirdness, you could always take some random ass chicken bone and just fucking stick in a croquette like the trash you are (don’t actually do that though, that’s weird.)

You know what’s delicious? Fried pieces of chicken.
You know what’s even more delicious? Karaage.

"but omg" you cry, flinging your yozora plushie on the ground in sheer astonishment (also also because she’s not as cool as Sena so it’s fine to throw her around), "aren’t friend chicken and karaage the same thing?"

No, friend. No. They are not the same thing. Yes, they’re both friend, yes they both involve pieces of chicken, but there’s something about karaage that makes it hella next level shit.

And that’s the marinade. 

So yeah, let’s get this wild ride started and make some delicious fucking karaage chicken.

Kodaka’s Karaage
(serves: 2, or 1 if you decide to eat all of it, which is possible because this shit is addictive)

Ingredients-

  • 1 lb of boneless chicken thighs, skin on, cut into 1” pieces
  • 1/2 Tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 2 cloved of garlic, grated/minced
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp sake*
  • 1/2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup of potato starch*
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • lemon for serving
  • 1 Kobato (optional but highly recommended)

*Though sake is recommended, if you don’t have it on you, I recommend using a marsala or madeira wine. I used that when I didn’t have any sake on me and it turned out fab

*If you don’t have any potato starch, corn starch is an okay substitute


Procedure-

  • Add the soy sauce, sake, ginger, garlic, and sugar to a large bowl and whisk until combined. Add the chicken and make sure to coat all pieces evenly. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  • Add 1 inch of vegetable oil to a large, heavy bottomed pan and heat until oil reached 360 degrees F. This is very important because if it’s not hot enough or too hot, it can leave you with raw chicken, which is gross. Make sure to buy a cooking thermometer for situations like this instead of spending your money on weird ecchi figurines of Sena, god damn it.
  • Prepare for the frying part by lining a giant plate with sheets of paper towels to place the cooked chicken on.
  • Grab a separate bowl and fill it with the potato starch
  • Dip each piece of chicken in the starch and coat evenly
  • Fry the chicken in batches until the exterior is a medium brown and the insides are cooked through. I suggest taking the chicken out of the every few seconds during the cooking process, because the end result is a motherfuckin crispy ass piece of chicken.
  • If you want even crispier chicken, fry it for a second time.
  • EAT THAT SHIT, SON, YOU DESERVE IT. WATCH SOME BOKU WA TOMODACHI AND PRETEND YOU’RE SHARING YOUR KARAAGE WITH KOBATO-CHAN YOU LONELY PIECE OF SHIT.

So yeah, now you know how to make some delicious fucking karaage. Trust me when I say you should totally make this shit for parties, it’s always hella cool to say, 

"Oh yeah, this? I marinated it and everything for a few hours lmao no big deal hahaha oh man ladies ladies one at a time"

You probably won’t say all of that but I mean people are always sort of impressed when it comes to marinades so you have that going for you

PEACE OUT NERD

So….I just watched the subbed Samurai Flamenco AND the subbed Kill la Kill. And needless to say, I’m emotional in the best way possible.

So I decided, since my sister was going to school and needed lunch anyway, why don’t I make her a Samumenco/Kill la Kill themed lunch using one of my bento boxes?

And I fuckin went at that shit. Granted I couldn’t go crazy with it because she’s a picky eater, but I worked with the shit she liked and I’m hoping there will be a positive outcome.

Everything in the box is somethign that y’all can very easily make yourselves, and the directions to do so are already on my site, so if you want to make something similar, just look below..

~

Lunch Bento-

  • Cheese and Potato Croquettes, because, you know, kill la kill
  • Egg Crepe flowers + rolls (just follow the directions on how to cook the egg crepe and then roll it up later. Use the ends to make little flowers and the middle for the roll.
  • carrots and peppers, because those are the colors of Masayoshi’s first Samumenco outfit.
  • Green onions and parsley for extra flavor

Dessert Bento-

  • Nutella Sandwich Cookies (for this I used the Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake recipe, except I halved it so there would be less batter, and I removed the chocolate chips and the baking powder from the recipe. I then added this hazelnut spread in the middle.
  • Strawberries and Blueberries, because Masayoshi’s uniform is red and Goto’s is blue..hah…„.,get it? agjajfndskjaln oh god its canon im so happy
  • And then I just sprinkled powdered sugar on top.

~

Alright kids, that’s it for this thing. If you’re emotional over Samumenco  and Kill la Kill too, then I feel you, I feel you so hard. If you’ve never seen it, I suggest marathoning them both and then once you’re done and all the tears have dried, come here and make this delicious piece of shit because it was really, really fun tbh.

in honor of Mean Girls’ 10th anniversary, here’s an incredibly subtle but completely extraordinary joke that you’ve probably never noticed from the movie (I saw it at least a dozen times before it dawned on me): Regina George started a rumor that Janis Ian was a lesbian in the 8th grade, but it wasn’t out of malice… it was because Janis told her that she was Lebanese

Dial-Up sound 700% slower

image

My cats actually lost their shit when I played this. They went wide eyed and started running about like they hit the nip or something

I just thought of a really really awesome use for this sound. *insert silent maniacal laugh to self*

My dog just screamed in pain

I think we just summoned Satan

So I thought this was going to be loud and screechy like normal dial-up and then it ended up being the most eerie, unsettling horror music ever. Why is that so fitting…? *Hides*

OH MY GOD THIS IS THE COOLEST THING EVER

image

One of the most obnoxious sounds in the world has suddenly become a hauntingly beautiful horror soundscape.

My phone rang while this was playing and I fucking screamed

my cat got noticeably more uncomfortable when this started playing

We need more bisexual girls in fiction. Happy out and proud. Sad and closeted and scared. Bi girls of color. Trans and genderqueer and two-spirit bi characters. Bi characters who don’t know they’re bi until someone tells them bisexuality is real. Bi girls pretending to be straight. Bi girls pretending to be lesbians. Immigrant bi girls who have got bigger issues to worry about than being bi. With more diversity in our bi girls in fiction, one bi girl character with internalized biphobia won’t stick out so terribly.
