Culture Festival Day 1

Saturday, October 28, 2006

The culture festival was all day yesterday and it was an amazingly fun time! My camera wasn't doing so well but we'll see if it'll do a better job today. Today is the second day of the culture festival when all the students will do exactly what they did yesterday only this time people from all over the town can come and enjoy the festivities.

Check out my gallery for pictures and more details.

In other news, I had Adam and Casandra (his girlfriend from Malaysia) come over for dinner last night. It's the first time I've ever cooked dinner for someone without their help as well. I cooked Salmon with American seasonings (garlic, lemon herb, and dill) that my mom sent me from home. I completed it with rice and a salad that had homemade croutons (the Japanese are not about the bread in salad it seems) and my very special Italian dressing that I have been living without until now (thanks mom!!)

Through this experience I also figured out why my food always comes out strange in my toaster oven. It's because it's not an oven at all. It's a glorified toaster....period. It has three settings which mean absolutely nothing to me: 500watts, 7500watts, and 1000watts. I thought that maybe 1000watts would be too much for the salmon but it turned out to be too little in the end. After trying to cook a 15 minute recipe for 30 minutes I finally got some tinfoil out and ghetto rigged my pan so that when the coil at the top turned on (there is no broil setting) the fish would be right underneath it. That helped...but nothing will fix a bad toasteroven except a new once which frankly I don't want to buy. But what else am I going to do?

Deal with it.
