Stir-Fried Dried Squid and Vegetables (NO Knife! Kitchen Shears) - Video Recipe

We received some dried squids when we visited the nearby shrine for our son's Omiyamairi (the first shrine visit) and my darling's Yakubarai (ceremony to drive away evil spirits). I decided to make a dish out of them.

It turned out to a very tasty and delicious stir-fried dish, goes great with white rice. Oyster-sauce flavor, with a hint of chive is obviously addictive. Very filling with lots of bean sprouts ;)

You don't need a knife but use kitchen scissors / kitchen shears!

Of course, you can use regular squids.

FYI: Hatsumiya-Mairi (初宮参り) or Omiyamairi (お宮参り) is one of the traditional celebration events for Japanese babies. Whenever a newborn is over a month old, we bring the baby to a nearby shrine for a greeting (giving the invocation).

Edible Snowman (Tamago Boro/Egg Biscuits/小饅頭) - Video Recipe

Tamago Boro (Egg Biscuits) are very popular snack in Japan, especially among kids (from 7 month babies to toddlers)!

One day, my daughter attached two pieces together and said "Yukidaruma (snowman)"! So I glued them together and drew eyes on it.
