    Kawaii! These little kitties aren’t just unbelievably cute, they’re also edible. They’re made by a Japanese mom named Caroline for Neko no Hi or Cat Day, which takes place each year on February 22nd.

    Cat-shaped treats seem like a wonderful way to celebrate how much you like your feline friends. These treats are cat-shaped nerikiri, which is “a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) with gyuhi (made of glutinous rice, similar to mochi but softer).” Caroline sculpts her nerikiri cats and kittens into various sizes and poses and then uses edible dyes to add distinguishing markings and fine details. She even makes little accessories for them, like tea sets and pillows for extra-comfy lounging.

    Based on the effort that goes into making these sweets, it seems likely that Caroline’s family probably has at least one real life cat of their own and we’re guessing it leads a wonderfully spoiled life.

    This recipe for my weekly dinner menu is super easy. I couldn’t be bothered to cook my dinner most Monday’s and I still need to eat cheaply.
It’s best to make the marinade for the chicken 30 minutes before cooking or leave it overnight so all the yummy flavors would seep into the meat. Serve this dish with your fave rice, couscous or any carbs and steam veges that you prefer. Enjoy :)

Ingredients:
4-6 chicken thighs skin on 
1/3 cup soy sauce

1 table spoon olive oil
Black pepper
Method:
In a bag add the chicken and all the sauces. Leave overnight to be marinated. Baked for 30 minutes 200 degrees oven or until cooked. Serve with rice and salad .

    Gado-gado is the one salad from Indonesia that needs no introduction. The creamy, sweet, sour, and spicy peanut sauce is really what makes this a great salad.

    Ceviche is a South American dish that uses the acid in lemons and limes to change the protein structure of raw fish. This gives the fish a pleasant cooked texture while adding a delicious tangy flavor. Once the fish has marinated, you can combine it with summer vegetables to create a refreshing ceviche perfect with tortilla chips or as a starter at your next garden party.
