Chocolate Eclair

It's too hot here to eat anything sweet other than watermelon.
That being said I don't know why I have had sweets on my mind.
Only one place in town, a patisserie, makes a eclair that is truly amazing.
I am glad it is across town so I can't walk to it otherwise I think I would put back on the 75 pounds I lost this year. At least this version is calorie free.

Strawberry Shortcake

I remember making strawberry shortcakes with my mother when I was a little girl.
This looks so yummy I almost want to eat it.

Hanami Dango

Yay, a request for more Japanese food!
(more to come when it stops raining)
This is for my fellow manga/anime geeks.
Hanami (flower viewing) is rather dear to me since I hope to name my future daughter Ohana (beginning of a flower).

Zombie Blood

It's no secret that I love Sci Fi flicks. Zombie movies are some of my favorites.
This bracelet is super simple and takes very little time to finish.

 Finally the sun came out so I could take pictures for new patterns!
Our garden is huge and all the ichiban eggplants are growing at amazing rates. 
We have been eating fresh eggplant, peppers, and tomatoes almost every night lately. 
Eating Japanese eggplant made me think of another popular Japanese vegetable, the daikon.
