Spell Your Name And Eat It

you don't know the half of it, but i love shopping. yes, i'm a guy, get over it!
when i started this blog i said to myself that i wouldn't post the results of my credit card bashings.
so far i think i have stuck to that promise except when it comes to non-personal items like mooncake molds, clay pots,
le creuset pots, chopping boards etc.
god, anyone would think i was a typical japanese housewife! (sorry k-chan!)

go ahead and call me crazy if you must, but after talking to my nana on the phone the other day, i suddenly had cravings for her homemade cookies.
most people would nip out and buy some cookies at the store, the creative type would probably think about whipping up a batch themselves and start searching for a recipe.
but no, what does mr sekimachihato do?
he makes a mental note in his head to buy the least important and most expensive "accessory" in the cookie making process, the cookie cutter.
(i have a very soft spot when it comes to accessories!)

but i'm sure you'll agree with me on this one, these alphabet cookie cutters from muji are pretty up there. no?
i so know you wanna eat all the letters to your name!!

i really have to start showing you guys the "results" one of these days.
you have yet to see a clay pot meal for one, a delicious le creuset pot stew, or my chopping board in action (ok, that might bore you a bit...)
i'm gonna get kneading and make some alphabet cookies soon, just you wait!

Hey, aesthetics is as very much important as the taste, so I suppose you're halfway there. ;-)

i'm gonna whip up a batch of yummy cookies (soon...)
i will give you four cookies using the letters "D", "E", "I", and "B"

thanks for your comment, and yes, you are so right! aesthetics are an extremely close second to taste in my books. maybe on par.

I LOVE these cutters! Useful for cookies, sandwiches, and even home decoration!! Hahaha. But not for the street foods of the Philippines. Hahaha...

omg, you're a straight man caught in a gay man's body! :-D

fun cutters though!

the thought to use these cutters on a sandwich never even crossed my mind!
thanks for the tip!

rather than "caught" i would say it's the perfect balance fo both worlds. lol

i spent a lot of time in the muji shops of hong kong when i stopped over on the way back to nz.
the range is vastly superior to what we have in europe.
i was in muji heaven, only to be topped to an actual visit to the mecca of muji - japan!
i'll stop waxing lyrical now :)

i gotta say we are pretty lucky in hong kong with our muji selection, but nothing beats muji mecca japan.
oh, if you are ever going to transit in hong kong, i heard there is now a muji store at the airport.
