Do you have a sweet tooth?

My suweeto haato's first attempt at making 'doraiyaki', a Japanese sweet...
They look just like the ones in the stores...
Hmmm, I love doraiyakis... 
Had to harvest all the remaining carrots in the potager...
Way too much to munch as salad...
So, requested my wifey to make carrot jam...
She did that... plus a cake to match...
Wooh... very, very nice... 
While in LA some time ago, visited an old pal of mine...
He is making a name for himself in the world of BBQ...
He gave us a packet of his secret rub of spices...
And my missus tried out the rub on chicken, beef, pork, and fish...
The above pic is chicken breast meat...
She put the stuff in our wood stove before retiring for the night...
So, the meat was cooking when we were sleeping...
The taste? Absolutely lovely! 
We like to chew on salads in our evening meals...
Here, my sweeto haato came up with her own creation...
Mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, gherkins from the store...
And from our potager, snap peas, lettuce, borage flowers, rocket flowers...
Plus a generous dash of olive oil, vinegar, and pepper...
Smoked salmon and fresh lettuce, onions, and dill from the garden...
Lovely with some white wine for dinner...

The usual suspects for our lunch...
Somen noodles, shrimps, green onions, carrots, tofu...
Similarly, the usual suspects for our breakfast...
We almost always share just one boiled egg for our breakfast...
