Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! ♥ I hope you all spent the day with the person you love most ^o^

Today's bento is heart-themed in spirit of the holiday~ Heart-shaped hamburger sliders, arabiki sausages, omelette, rice, and fruits ♥ I woke up extra early to make sure I had enough time for this bento ^^;;

Made with love! ♥

Here is the recipe for the hamburger sliders, if anyone is interested~

Ingredients ♥
  • Ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Half an onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp shoyu
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • Salt & pepper to taste

1. Using your hands, mix ingredients in a large bowl.
2. Form patties (make them small if you are making sliders). For the bento, I cut out heart-shaped patties with a cookie cutter :3
3. Grill the patties on high heat until cooked through.
4. Sandwich between hamburger buns or white/wheat bread. (Cut out hearts from bread to make Valentine-themed sliders!)
5. If you wish, add your favorite toppings! (Lettuce, onion, tomato, ketchup, whatever~!)
6. Serve and enjoy ^o^

LOTD: Almost Spring

Hello hello~ I wore this outfit to school on Friday. The dress is super cute, but I don't like wearing anything strapless so I paired it with a knit top ♥

Dress: Theme

Just a simple, easy outfit ♥ I'll have to shop around for a nice hair accessory to wear with it :3

My boyfriend and I exchanged Valentine's day presents a little early this year :3 He got me a Kinect and Dance Central ^o^~ It's so much fun!  For his present, I bought him a gaming mouse for Starcraft ♥ Speaking of which, we finally hopped on the 2v2 ladder today~ We're in gold right now, but hopefully will rank up to platinum soon ;w;

Okay well, we're going to Starbucks for a study session right now :3 Thanks for reading ♥

I rather like this look, mostly for the top :3 Wore this to school last week~
Top: Spiral Girl
Skirt: Spiral Girl

Yesterday was a lot of fun~ Watched the Superbowl with a couple of friends and ate homemade korean food ♥ I was really anti-social most of the weekend though :< Didn't go to the Punahou carnival because I didn't want to fight through crowds. Now I'm sad because I missed out on malasadas and teri burgers ;; I also chose to stay in on First Friday because I was really tired even though I knew I would have had a fun time at Ka with everyone. Blah, well at least I feel well rested today :3

Last week, my boyfriend and I finally tried Ireh restaurant. It's super cute and the food is excellent! The interior makes it feel like you're in a K-drama >w<

Topokki ♥

My chicken jook~ So good!

Patbingsu for dessert ♥ Just like heaven~

Also, I just found out that my blog is on page one of the Tumblr directory for "Cute" ^o^ Thank you very much to everyone who recommended ♥ It really means a lot to me!

Now going to watch the GSL team leagues and attempt to finish my finance homework~ Thanks for reading ^o^

Today's bento is cream of mushroom pork chop with nigiri and peppers!  I cooked the pork chops last night for dinner ♥ The bf liked it so I hope he is okay with eating it again for lunch today ^o^

Some people have been asking me to post recipes, so this will be my first cooking post ^o^

I didn't really follow a recipe for this meal, just winged it for the most part, but here is the recipe to make cream of mushroom pork chops~

  • Pork chops (I used a leaner cut because we are dieting)
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can milk
  • 1 large onion
  • 1-2 cups fresh mushrooms
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • White wine
  • Salt
  • Pepper

1. Salt & pepper pork chops to taste and cook on medium-high until brown.
2. Once pork chops are brown, remove from heat.
3. Sauté onions, mushrooms, and crushed garlic. Add a splash of white wine to pan.
4. Return pork chops to pan and add cream of mushroom soup & milk.
5. Allow chops to cook for 30 minutes or until tender.
6. Serve and enjoy ^o^
