Whisking Wednesdays #21


Welcome to Whisking Wednesdays! 

Ok, so I'm late again.  I was on time for a few weeks in a row and it seems I'm back to being totally forgetful of what day it is.  Habit of someone that doesn't work and my husband has a rotation schedule so isn't off on weekends but every 4 days instead.  So needless to say I get so very confused!  Plus, spending over 2 hours in the car multiple days of the week taking my daughter to and from school just drains my brain power.  Driving in Japan is insane and totally exhausting and nothing like I've ever seen before.  Take everything you've learned as right and normal from the states and just immediately toss it out the window.  Running red lights - acceptable.  Parking and/or stopping in the middle of the road, any road, with no regards for traffic - acceptable.  Swerving into oncoming traffic to go around all the parked/stopped cars in the road - acceptable.  Pedestrians jumping out into traffic without ever looking in your direction - acceptable.  Motorcycles and mopeds swerving in and out of traffic and around cars and creating their own lanes without any regard for personal safety or the other vehicles - even more acceptable! But I'm not complaining, I love in here and couldn't be happier!  Hope everyone else had a wonderful week and I can't wait to see all the new recipes linked up!

Thank you all who participated in this week's Whisking Wednesdays and hope to see you back again this week!

These are so awesome!  I love this and think I could even do this myself. It looks so fun and creative and of course it is almost Halloween!

In honor of Halloween this black widow gets the #1 spot.  It is so cute!  And come on, there's Oreos in it, so you know it has got to be good!

Can we say chocolately awesomeness?  These look divine.  I love chocolate almost as much as I love my children and anything that has the worlds "triple chocolate" in gets my attention.

With my daughter starting pre-kindergarten recently I've been looking for new and fun ideas for her to bring for her school lunch everyday.  So this caught my eye.  It is pretty, healthy and creative.

  1. Thanks so much for featuring my veggie sandwiches! Today I linked up another cute lunchbox idea... mini stuffed peppers... and a fun little dessert that's great for fall... chocolate dipped apricots that look like acorns. Is it fall in Japan? :)
