what is the MAGIC
it’s called mochi!
it’s like ice cream in a soft skin!
also, it’s fucking amazing!
This is もちアイス (mochiaisu) and the “soft skin” is pounded rice cake. The white stuff you see on the outside is powdered sugar so they won’t get sticky. It’s very delicious on a hot day and you can get these at the right self-serve frozen yogurt joints. Unfortunately North America sells one mochiaisu for a dollar and some cents whereas in Japan you can get these by the boxful in any supermarket.
Want it. Nnh
you can make it yourself at home folks! Mochi is really simple to make, all you have to do is take 2 cups rice flower, mix with 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar, boil it in a pot or put in a ceranwrap covered bowl and put in microwave for 7 minutes. turn off the heat and stir it until it becomes solid and sticky. Then you can roll it into balls with a little bit of rice flour on top to keep it from being too sticky. Then you can eat it just like that, cover a scoop of ice cream and freeze it to make this, or you can make Strawberry Daifuku which is strawberries and red bean paste (anko) wrapped in mochi. I make it all the time!
Aww damn i gotta do this!!
Waaaaant. You’d find them in regular supermarkets in Seattle. Out here? Not so much. :(
reblogging this because MOCHI RECIPE

So I was recently thinking about my days as a Digimon fan back when everybody shipped everyone. As a fan of USM, this is what I came up with…. (and yes, I realise that I have no life).
This is just a bit of a ‘guide’ that I’ve put together on the relationships in the show (not just romantic, but also friendship and platonic). Not to be taken seriously of course. This series is not exactly forthcoming with Peter’s love life, but hey, shipping is a serious business. No matter what fandom we’re talking about, some people are gonna ship their ship to the end.
I should warn you now that you can expect profanity, bias, my lame attempt at being humourous, spoilers and the inclusion of slash (M/M) and ‘crack’ pairings. If this bothers you, then you might not want to read.
I’m also a huge Peter fan. He’s just the sassiest, cutest thing ever and also voiced by Drake Bell which just makes me love him even more. I can’t even tell you how much I adore him. I think he should be ‘shipped’ with everyone.
I know some people can’t stand this show, but please don’t bug me with why Spectacular is better. Hopefully, it will generate a discussion on what people’s favorite relationships are in the show, irrespective of whether they are romantic or platonic.
4/5/2014: Decided to update this. There’s a few things I wanted to add, particurarly regarding SpideyNova and the inclusion of a few extra relationsips that I feel are worth talking about.
A fic rec starter kit for the pairing Peter Parker/ Flash Thompson. I love this pairing and the fics here are just fantastic. They’re really brilliant, all beautifully written, all complete, and all so, so good. A companion fic rec starter kit to my 00Q, Johnlock, Merthur, Jercy, Percico+Jaisco, and FrostIron ones. Written because I adore this pairing so much and it would have been so much easier if someone had just compiled a starter kit of all the lovely Spiderflash fics in one place for those just dipping their toe into the fandom or for those who just want to find some possibly new, worth reading spiderflash fics. Hopefully someone finds this useful and gains at least one new spiderflash fic to read. I hope you enjoy it. Happy reading! All fics are below the cut.
