Finally back

So, wow. It's been five months since the last time I posted.
Well, I'm back, I'll probably be posting a few things soon, but I don't know how long I'll stay. I came back because I have some photos to post, I've been asked about it from a few people, and well, I'm trying to procrastinate my homework.
It's a lot more work writing a blog than it is reading a blog, and I often lack motivation, but maybe this time it'll stick.

Anyway. I'm well, still cooking, loving food, et cetera. It's just the photographing and blogging that's sometimes hard to motivate myself to do. But I've got it now, so, here are some photos!

Homemade gyoza with miso soup and edamame. [Click for larger image. The small image really doesn't do the photo justice]
Totally delicious. The gyoza took a while to fill and press them, but they were really, really good. Perfectly chewy and crispy.
They were filled with leeks (From the garden. This year we had TONS of leeks. Several gallon-bags went into our freezer), mushrooms, napa cabbage, basil, garlic, and ginger, with a splash of soy sauce and mirin. I loosely followed this recipe.

I used pre-made wrappers. Because although gyoza is delicious, even with pre-made wrappers they take a lot of time to make. Worth every minute though.

Tofu, leeks, mushrooms, seaweed, and napa cabbage, sprinkled with sesame seeds.

Totally delicious.

Anyway, I'll be posting a few more things soon, including an update about what I've been doing all this time, lets hope it lasts.

And to all you bloggers: How do you motivate yourself to blog frequently?

As long as I'm cooking and eating and trying new things, I have something to blog about! Do you need to mix up your routine in any way?
