It's March 14th, and you know what that means, eh? It's Hite-uh Day!!! (Also known as White Day) when the women in Korea (and Japan) finally get theirs, in the form of CANDY! Yah!
I'm thinking of Adam Sandler on SNL's Weekend Update: "I'm crazy one arm man, now GIMME SOME CANDY!!"
Yes, today the girls get the candy from the boys. I'll get candy from my students which I'll redistribute back to them over the next few days. If I remember, I'll take a picture of my bounty tomorrow. I've already gotten 4 lollipops, a little cookie and 4 polo mints handed to me with a sweaty palm. Yummy!
In honour of White Day I made something white:
It's not vanilla ice cream. It's mock ricotta, and it was very easy to make and turned out really good! (I can't get real ricotta here.) If I had an oven I'd use this stuff to make stuffed shells or lasagna. Instead, I'm wondering if it'd be good in a spinach omelet. I got the recipe from Zen Kimchi who offers a really comprehensive step by step post on how to make it. Check out the cheese blintzes he recently made with his mock ricotta. Looks good!
In other news, I went to see "The Pursuit of Happyness" yesterday. It made me happi! Tonight is musical theatre night. I've got "RENT" and "The Producers" to watch. I best get to it.
Happy White Day!
