Crunchyroll #76: Reindeer Soup from “Ancient Magus’ Bride”

OK, let’s address the elephant in the room. Or, rather, the reindeer in the room. I know eating reindeer, for quite a few people, seems a bit… wrong. Or, it would to the people who live here in California with me. Most of it has to do with the fact that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is practically the mascot of Christmas in America. I mean, it would be unusual to eat them anyway, considering most of America doesn’t get cold enough for reindeer. But reindeer are just not considered common food. However, I am here to tell you that if you are one of the people that harbors these feelings about eating reindeer, you need to set those feelings aside immediately and find a kind stranger in Alaska, or some other reindeer-populated area, to mail you a package of frozen reindeer at the next available opportunity.

Crunchyroll #75: Curry-Men from “Laid Back Camp”

Learn how to make it here!

Welcome 2018! This is my first food recipe of 2018, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Laid-Back Camp, the adorable new 2018 winter anime, is all about a girl getting away from the hustle and bustle of regular life to go camping for the weekend. As someone who just came back from a two-week winter break, I can tell you that there is no better thing to do while “getting away from it all” than eating some really, really good food. To be fair, camping food is not my go-to comfort food, but the recipe we’re talking about this week has a certain charm to it.

Has your 2017 been an absolute train-wreck like mine? Can I even count the times my life has fallen apart this year, only to have me try to spackle it back together with a thin layer of optimism and sheer desperation? Is that way too depressing? Ah well, so it goes. Thankfully, my optimism is eternal and I have high hopes for my 2018.

Caprese Martini from “Neo Yokio”

It’s a gross as you think it’s going to be. I had to see what it would taste like! Click over to see the video for my full reaction. Recipe is posted below. Make with caution- in my experience this is a highly divisive drink. You either love it or hate it. I tested it on many of my friends- it seems like the people who liked it enjoyed savory things more than sweet things. If you don’t like savory drinks, this might not be for you.

However, it’s 100% worth it for the memes. I brought the leftovers to a friend’s wedding, and it really spiced up the festivities and made it super classy. It helped that he was wearing a midnight blue suit to his own wedding. And, you guessed it- the suit was *sparklin*.
