These lovable cat-themed sweets were made by Caroline, a Japanese housewife. She creates them annually on Cat’s Day — February 22. The cat-shaped sweets are nerikiri: a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing sweet white bean paste and glutinous rice. Caroline tints and sculpts them into various shapes and styles; then puts them on pancakes and doughnuts as edible decorations. They’re just too cute to eat!
Can’t stop won’t stop.
An adorable sweet I got at work. It’s called a “White Rabbit” and it’s filled with white bean paste. Delicious.
re-use of salad/lettuce hearts :)
- first cut it out from the leaves
- then cut a little from the edge but not too much
- then cut it into a cube-similar - cut as less leaves and material away as possible but leaves do get moldy and then the whole heart will get moldy too and die
- put it in wet soil so that just the tip looks out
- put on a plastic cup or something similar to get a high humidity around the sprouting meristem - don’t forget to give it fresh air here and there like every 2-3 days
- put the pot to a warm location and wait
- after a few days - 2 weeks the new plant will sprout
enjoy your new growing salad plants :)
I’ve tried it and it works with iceberg salad, romaine lettuce, butterhead, lollo rosso salad actually with every lettuce/salad with a heart
