I've been wide awake and bleary eyed at three in the morning every single day since arriving in Tokyo (thanks jet lag!) The trains shut down here at 12 or 1 am, so I've had plenty of time to randomly surf the internet for interesting reads.

Thankfully this morning I woke up at 6, so I think I'm starting to get back into a non-vampire existence.

Lemongrass Stuffing Recipe

It’s an I am a Food Blog Thanksgiving! I made a tiny Thanksgiving for two featuring some Asian flavours. Rounding out the meal are lemongrass braised turkey legs, and miso mashed potatoes. Next up are going to be honey garlic sprouts! Seems like there's a great divide on stuffing vs. dressing.

Miso Butter Mashed Potatoes Recipe

It’s an I am a Food Blog Thanksgiving! I made a tiny Thanksgiving for two featuring some Asian flavours. Check out my lemongrass braised turkey leg! I know I say everything is my favourite, but seriously, mashed potatoes are my be all, end all. I just love, love, love them and have been known to eat mashed potatoes as a meal. Even when I was little I was obsessed with mashed potatoes. Other kids would talk about licking frosting or cake batter off a spoon; I would look forward to licking the masher when my mom made mashed potatoes.
