I Make Food With My Brother Like the Aldinis
New Anime That Makes Me Feel All Sorts of Ways
By: Head Writer – Justin Tafoya
Monday, Jan. 25th –
Hello again Giga-Landers! I hope your January is going well because mine is going way too quick! I’ve mostly been playing Xenoblade Chronicles X on my weekend time, with a quick sprinkle of Undertale in between. But, it seems like most of my time is devoted to work, even with the resignation of my second job . . . Being a grown up sucks!
Though, I have had a chance to try some new recipes. Specifically ones from Shokugeki no Souma. My brother and I made the “Gotcha! Pork Roast” from the very first episode of the anime and, I have to say, it was damn delicious! I suggest using a boat load of bacon it you ever try to make it yourself, you don’t want any of the potatoes leaking out.
And, you know, more bacon is never a bad thing. What really tied the meal together was the reduced wine sauce. The flavor was absolutely outstanding, like a sweet yet flavorful mixture that perfectly complimented the roast. I suggest doubling up on the ingredients if you have big potatoes, that way you can soak up the extra sauce if you have some bread.
So far, Souma’s recipes are 2 for 2 in the “Keep this Recipe!” book. It was pretty easy to make and was enough to feed at least five people. I think I’d like to try Souma’s niku-don recipe next. . .
NOW ON TO ANIME!
I’ll be writing my initial reviews pretty soon or, as soon as I can. There is a lot of good/watchable anime airing this season and trying to decide what to write on first is already something of a challenge.
My first choice this season would be Boku Dake ga Inai Machi (The Town Without Me). Most avid readers of my insanely popular (lie) reviews and/or Journals knows that mysteries aren’t exactly my forte, but Boku Dake is so masterfully put together, so splendidly crafted, that it’s extremely easy to follow and come up with your own conclusions. Though, it is extremely dark and introduces a lot of real life elements (e.g. child kidnappings, domestic abuse . . .), so if you can’t stomach the real deal you might want to stay away.
But, to David and I, it’s the Anime to beat this season. I highly suggest watching at least two episodes.
Anyway, that’s it for me today my Giga-Friends! I hope you have a great Monday and an even better week! -J.R
