Mary's Gone What?

テーマ:Healthy Wednesday
Mary's Gone Crackers! No we're not pointing out the misgivings of an old friend, but showing off a new Costco Product. These biscuits are made with seeds and whole grains, and they're even gluten free! Just add a little low-fat topping and you've got yourself a great healthy snack to be enjoyed whenever and wherever you like. Though do remember eating in certain places in Japan is quite frowned upon ... trains for instance.

Trendy Toast? Suave Sandwiches? Lovin' The Loaf!

テーマ:Trendy Tuesday
What's the greatest thing since sliced bread? How about a huge loaf of sliced! Recently our Kimuraya Sliced Loaves have been selling really well, and have become our top selling item. These are always in limited supply at Costco's bakery, so we've been very lucky that we've been able to snap up all the bread that we need. Whether you want it for toast or sandwiches, this large loaf won't let you down!

Darlo's Raisin Bread with Cheese

テーマ:Recipe Thursday


For today's recipe we're actually going for a staff-member original piece. John (aka Darlo) will talk us through his recipe for ... what are you calling it?

"Raisin Bread with Cheese."

Ah, ok. So what are the ingredients for this simple sounding recipe.

"Raisin Bread, Cheese, Butter or Marge."

Wow that ... really is quite simple. Why not talk us through it.

"If you buy Kirkland's raisin bread loaf, it's already sliced so that will save you a bit of time."

Yes, time can be quite a daunting factor.

"Similarly if you get a pre-sliced cheese such as the Sonoma or Havarti, that's one less thing to worry about."

I suppose you could also use a cheese that comes as a block too, right?

"Yeah, in fact the Kirkland sharp cheddar is great for this. If only it was pre-sliced ... sigh."

Sigh indeed. So what's next?

"Slab a bit of butter on two sliced of the raisin bread. Marge can be used too, but salted butter tastes the best."

Marge might have to do for now. Japan's experiencing a bit of a butter shortage right now. What's next?

"Pop some cheese between the slices and you're done!"

Done?

"Done!"

Well ... that was simple.

"Not as simple as writing a dialogue between two people who are actually the same person."

Cheeky.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Minis

テーマ:Trendy Tuesday
So these little beauties have only been on our store for about a week and have already been selling well. Though I do love me some chocolate, I'll be honest I didn't want to eat Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I'm not a peanut butter fan, you see, and I thought that given it's name it would rely heavily on that core ingredient.

That was until Felix bought a bag for the office to share. I begrudgingly tried one and ... well, no I wasn't hooked or any faff like that, but I did enjoy it. It's quite an achievement that a product containing peanut butter in the name could be liked by someone who doesn't actually like peanut butter.

Good show, Reese ol' chap.

Spotlight on the Princess

テーマ:Spotlight Monday
Hear-yee, Hear-yee, the princess is about to make her grand entrance.

OK so more snack that royalty, but IKEA's Princess Cakes are seriously more-ish. The cream, marzipan, cake combination is divine, and the fact that there are four in a pack makes a great snack and brilliant one that you can spread over a few days ... or I guess you could share them with friends or family.

Let's Get Stuffed!

テーマ:Spotlight Monday
Some people say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, this picture Kraft Stove Top Turkey Stuffing is worth at least 1001. More even, if you include the words "Where can I find Stuffing for Christmas or Thanksgiving in Japan? Oh mercy!"

Baked Coconut Shrimp

テーマ:Recipe Thursday

Today's recipe comes from All Recipes.com.


Baked Coconut Shrimp

  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups flaked sweetened coconut
  • 3 egg whites, beaten until foamy

Method

Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.


Rinse and dry shrimp with paper towels. Mix cornstarch, salt, and cayenne pepper in a shallow bow; pour coconut flakes in a separate shallow bowl. Working with one shrimp at a time, dredge it in the cornstarch mixture, then dip it in the egg white, and roll it in the coconut, making sure to coat the shrimp well. Place on the prepared baking sheet, and repeat with the remaining shrimp.


Bake the shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center and the coconut is browned, 15 to 20 minutes, flipping the shrimp halfway through.

"Let It Go" At Lunchtime

テーマ:Fantastic Friday

So Costco is currently selling a lunch set based on the hit Disney animation Frozen (アナと雪娘王). And since today is fun Friday, please enjoy our own lunch themed rewrite of the song "Let it go".


Here's the music if you want to sing along.


A sound growls down in your belly right now,
Not a morsel to to be seen,
It's lunchtime in your office,
But your bento is too clean,
You're craving oh so many different kinds of quiche,
But you've got nothing, fate can be so mean,

That's when you think right to yourself,
"Wait, that's not my bento on this shelf"
Yours is hidden right next to the wall,
And it's so full ...

Let it go, let it go,
Eat your sandwich, drink your milk,
Let it go, let it go,
Finish that chocolate, tastes like silk,
I don't care much for mayonnaise,
Let's use ketchup instead,
And pickles never bothered me anyway.
