Greetings, lovely littles and diapered delinquents. Hope you're all having an awesome day.

Thanks for all the words of support last time, you guys! I tend to be hard on myself when I fall behind on things like this but I'm steadily getting back into my studies again which is awesome. Been focusing on verb conjugation, mostly casual negative, past, and negative-past. Next week I wanna look into TE and formal forms. You know, as difficult as this language can be, at least its pretty straightforward when it comes to conjugating.

And I made vegetable tempura for the first time in years. I've been trying to find more budget friendly meals and I remembered tempura was a thing when I found a bottle of soy sauce in the back of the cupboard my mom used in one recipe and then never touched again. It was my first time making it for my mom. She loved it and has been thinking what veggies we can batter next. I used broccoli and cauliflower because it's what we had but I am all for any other suggestions.
Shishito peppers. Mushrooms. Sweet potatoes. Lotus root is nice if you can get it. Matchstick potatoes and carrots or burdock. Think its called kakiage. Perilla leaf is nice. Like Japanese kabocha pumpkin tempura a lot too. Green tea salt is nice on it if you can make it.
