Cooking With Oishii Anime 11


Which anime is that delicious dish from? So Acchi Kocchi is one of those slice of school life shows that I generally dislike because they are all the same boring thing over and over again and never really funny. This show actually made me laugh and had more that one dude in the show to boot! Talk about win win~

What is that delicious dish? Cookies! Chocolate chip cookies!!

How do I make that delicious dish?

The Batter:

  • 2 1/4 cups Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 /2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 cup Butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 2 cups of Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl mix: flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

In a separate larger bowl mix: butter, sugars, vanilla, and eggs.

Stir flour mixture into the sugar mixture until smooth. Then you are ready to put the chocolate chips in!

Bake for 10 minutes or until you can see they are done to your liking.

Note: If your mixture is too dry add a little milk to moisten it up but not too much.

The Dish:

No dish here. Remove from pan, cool on a rack, and EAT!

Pokemon Workout!

So, I've been planning this exercise thing for a good long time now. It was one of my new years personal goals to accomplish this year but I didn't take it to the level I'm about to (the most I've done is go out for walks) because like always my health is so up and down. I was also doing some pretty wacky stuff with my back earlier on this year medical wise so I didn't really want to interfere with that. Since things have eased lately I've decided to finally start working out.

No more being a Slowpoke

I'm going to start attempting a regular schedule for getting into better shape starting next week. I figure I'll start off with 2 or 3 days a week in the beginning and hopefully I'll be able to start doing more days after a while. Why is this called "Pokemon Workout" you are asking at this point I'm sure. Well the goal is to watch one or 2 episodes of Pokemon while working out. Why not mix what I love watching with actually making me a little more fit? I will be posting after each workout about 1 or 2 Pokemon episodes along with my getting fit thoughts and what I feel my progress is like. I will not be posting any weird videos like this or images of me actually working out. XD I'm going to start off with the very first Pokemon series. I look at this as trying to get back to those younger years.

Don't wanna turn into a Jigglypuff

I've made this little starters list that I'll be following at first. I hope to be adding more "challenges" to this as I progress to see what works and what doesn't.

Workout Plan

"Fun" challenges:

Push ups or curl ups during the opening and ending credits.
Jumping jacks when team rocket appears and they say their catch phrase.
At the halfway point while "guess that Pokemon" is happening speed up whatever doing at the time.

Main exercises during the first half and second half of show:

- Ride bike
- Arm/ leg weight training / planks
- Special stretching that I learned from my physiotherapist to not hurt my back
- Ball exercises

The above main exercises are made for 2 Pokemon episodes in a row. It will most likely just be one at first so I'll pick and choose which I feel like doing. I do hope to get it up to a whole hour at some point but baby steps first for me.

Going to get energetic like Pikachu!

Fitness is always on a person's mind that sits behind a computer. Office workers especially are always looking for ways to keep them from turning chubby. So after being basically stuck doing nothing for about 3+ years now due to my decline in health, I do not wish to turn into a fat blob at all. I'm no where near being overweight but I don't want to get there either. With this I hope to prevent what happens to most of us with little activity and keep the pounds from creeping higher and higher till it's too late. Even though it's never too late to start loosing weight and get back into shape!

I suppose we can call this a tad inspired by Training with Hinako, although I won't need to watch her on the screen each time I do my workouts. I think cute little Pokemon will do the trick nicely for me instead of bouncing boobies. Even the cute Wakey Wakey Exercise that Sumomo does, I think is just a little too annoying for me.

Sometimes I wonder why they haven't started talking to me too...

Also since I've got people here, starting next week I'm going to be doing a series of posts every Tuesday called "Tuesday Tally". Since I watch a lot of anime I thought it would be fun to keep a list around for a while to see just how much I've actually watched in a week going by each day. I'll be keeping a list over on my small blog on AnimePlanet and at the end of each week I will post a bigger one over here with more thoughts and reaction to what I have viewed. Thinking about adding a "Manga Monday" or maybe more suited to me a "Movie Monday". I'm still debating over which project to start for that.

If anyone has any suggestions out there for workout tips, I'm all ears. ^_^ Pokemon Workout here I come!

The Gundam Universe

I am NO expert on any of the Gundam universes, but I have scoured the internet over many, many sites to gather all this information to accomplish my goal for this year, which is to watch ALL of the Gundam titles I can get my hands on. I hate trying to look at all the information on all separate pages so I'm making this to have all the information in ONE spot. If there are mistakes or missing series leave a comment and I'll revise. It's a big Gundam world and it's a little hard to wrap the brain around sometimes. (Especially when you haven't even seen any except Wing).

There are 7 different Universes that make up this giant franchise. Each can be watched separately from the others. There is no "perfect" way to watch them. If you want to be old school you can start from the very first one made (Universal Century) and go from there in a semi chronological order airing wise. I included the year aired to make this a little easier. The way they are listed in each time line, is the order they "should" / "suggested" to be watched in.

Here we go!

Universal Century

- Mobile Suit Gundam MS IGLOO: The Hidden One Year War 3 OVA (2004)

MS IGLOO: Apocalypse 0079 3 OVA (2006)

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 Movie (2010?)


- Gundam Evolve 15 OVA (2001-2007)

This series are shorts that span across all the Universes. So I would suggest watching after you have seen all the other Gundam's.

(Once I watch it I will be able to fill in what episodes go with which universe)

- Superior Defender Gundam Force 52 eps (2004)

This series is separate completely but makes references to Universal Century, Future Century, and the After Colony time lines. So best watched after you have seen those ones.

(Totally looks like it is aimed at kiddies as well so be weary)

And finally here's a list of random deformed specials that go along with each of the listed series above. They are chibi gundam's and generally extras to be watched after you have seen the series they relate to. (I assume). I believe there is more than I listed here but I can't 100% confirm right now.
