Review #10: axes femme

Hello my dears,

I finally ordered from axes femm again since my Mom also wanted to get somethin. So I also looked for reduced stuff and I found some pretty cute items!

 First one: soup bowl.
I got it for 500yen each.
 Look at the beautiful pattern! It's so cute! And since I wanted to get stuff like this for a while it's perfect!

On the bottom you can see the brand name.

 This is the second item.

 A beautiful bracelet

 It wasn't reduced but ~2000yen isn't much anyway

This is how it looks worn. It has a ring attached to it.
Here are some more close ups:

I really wanted to get more stuff but I have to save money so there was no possibility to get more. Anyway I'm really satisfied with each item!

  • Quality:         ❤❤❤❤♡ (the ring was a bit tight although I have so slender fingers)
  • Service:         ❤❤❤❤❤
  • Material:        ❤❤❤❤❤
  • Price:             ❤❤❤❤♡
  • Satisfaction:  ❤❤❤❤❤
  • Overall:         ❤❤❤❤❤

Café and Dinner

Hello everyone,

a while ago I have been downtown with Tara to buy some stuff and everything and whe thought why not try out a café. Finally we sat there for hours and it was really nice. They still had winter specials and it was so delicious.

 Tara had some hot chocolate and a chocolate cream cake.

She said it tasted amazing! And it also looked like that!

I got some green tea. Look at the cute tea set!

It tasted really good!

And to eat I had some cinnamon parfait with hot cherries.

I loved it!

The prices were also alright. We got the cake for about 4€. The hot chocolate was the same. Tea was about 6€ and the parfait 7,50€. It's alright for a café in Frankfurt city I guess.

In the evening we decided to go to a Eritrean restaurant since we had a coupon for it. The restaurant itself didn't look that good from the outside. But the inside was comfy and nice. For each table they kind of had a private space so you were more for yourself. The service was great! They were really nice! Also the food was very delicious.

This is some Eritrean tea which actually tasted like Kinderpunsch (glogg?) without any sugar. Amazing!

 We had a vegetarian plate for two persons.

Everything was very good and actually I love eating with hands!

We go there again for sure!

Recipe #10: Udon

Hello my dears,

today I would like to share a new recipe with you: Udon!

What you need for the soup:
1 pckg Udon (fresh or dried)
Soy sauce
Dashi powder
And for the topping:
1-2 leaves cabbage
some oyster mushrooms
some snow peas
1/2 carrot

Start with the soup base first. Mix together about 400ml water, 1 tbsp mirin, soy sauce and tsuyu. Add about 1 tsp dashi powder. Then add the konbu and let it cook for about 10min. In the meantime cut the cabbage in thin stripes. Do the same with the carrot. Heat up some water in a pot and blanch the vegetables one after another. This means put them into the pot and take it out after about 10-20 seconds.
The soup should be ready now and you can add the udon. If it's fresh udon wait for another 5 min. If it's dried udon add it and let it cook until done (might take up to 10min).
Now put the udon and the soup into a bowl. Add the toppings on it and it's done!
Fresh and healthy udon!
Of course you can add also other toppings, like aburaage, eggs or whatever else you like!

If you need it to be vegetarian try this:
Instead of tsuyu and dashi use soy sauce, konbu and shiitake mushrooms. Buy the dried ones and put them into the water you will later use as soup base. After about 1 hour take them out and rinse the water through a kitchen towel (so the sand and everythin else that was inside won't be in the soup afterwards!). Now heat up the water with mushroom flavor and add konbu, soy sauce and mirin. Then proceed like in the normal recipe.

I hope you like it!
Tell me about it if you tried!
