12th Anniversary

No, I have not been married this long. But I have known my husband for a long, long time (at least in correlation with my age!). Twelve years ago on October, 3rd, I got to know him for the very first time...You can say that he's my childhood sweetheart..., or maybe not? Because we didn't get together until a few years later (and by this time I was no longer a child ;)).



Last year I prepared something typical German to celebrate our 11th Anniversary (since October, 3rd is also the German Reunification Day), but this time I prepared a feast - an Asian feast to be exact. A feast, because I spent hours in the kitchen preparing the planned dishes and also because after eating these arrays of food, we were not able to eat dinner anymore...;).

I made kimchi, salt and pepper squid, fried wontons, ebi nigiri sushi and a family of bunny pork buns (unfortunately only Mr Bunny turned out quite good-looking - Mrs Bunny had rather messed up eye make-up ;) and Miss Bunny looked kinda grumpy :(). We also had mochi as dessert. I bought the mochi from my local Asian grocery store. If you want to make mochi yourself, check out my Quick and Easy Red Bean Mochi recipe!


Recipe coming soon...!








Do you see how messy Mrs Bunny's eye make up is? And the head of Missy Bunny didn't turn out well, rather wrinkled, making her look grumpy...


The Bunny Family looks better before steaming I guess... (Btw, if you want to see another cute pork-bun family, check out my Piggy Pork Buns post!)



Mr Bunny is apparently the best looking one in the family...!

  28. @ Everyone - Thanks for the best wishes :)!!

    @ Honey Bee Sweets - I don't actually have a daughter ;). I just made a bunny family for fun:)!

    @ Tatabonita - Yes, the meals were only for both of us. We're a small family :) (well, actually not that small, because we've got 4 little furry family members as well ;)).

    @ Cookingpractice - I think I spent about 4 hours... So, even though altogether the foods don't look that impressive, I spent most of the day in the kitchen...!!
