Our tabemono origin story for today is about the deep-fried yet surprisingly light~ TEMPURA! ~~~The idea of the tempura recipe was brought to Japan by the Portuguese in the 16th century (along with Catholicism). “Tempura” came from “quattuor anni tempora”, or the “The Ember Days ”, where Catholics refrain from eating meat, hence tempura is prepared with seafood and vegetables (as a substitute for meat). It soon became very popular especially in street food stalls, and was eaten all year round. (°∀°)bExtra trivia:☆ In preparing the batter, one should not mix/stir it too much, for it will lose its crunchiness when fried (it becomes chewy instead).☆ Lumps in the batter = crunchy!☆ When frying the tempura, some crunchy debris or bits called “tenkasu” are scooped out from the cooking oil and put aside to be used as toppings in other dishes.~~~We hope you love tempura as much as we do~ ^-^ Because of its ingredients and the way it’s prepared, we think this might be the healthiest we can get from a deep-fried food Until our next tabemono origin story, JapanLovers! www.japanlover.me

We hope you love tempura as much as we do~ ^-^ 

Because of its ingredients and the way it’s prepared, we think this might be the healthiest we can get from a deep-fried food

i passed this on my bike the other day and it made me feel better and now look here it is again

This is something they don’t teach us. Instead they teach us to lean and rely on people when really we should be holding our own hand. They never told us how to deal with losing loved ones and being left astray. We’re left broken and hurt because we weren’t prepared. We never expected bad things to happen because they never taught us that anything bad would ever happen. They never taught us.

Civil Rights Protest prep. Hair pulling and blowing smoke in her face to prepare her for the experience of sitting in restaurants that were not willing to serve people of color.

This was not in the way way back past. My parents grew up through this.

This is why I laugh when people say that racism is over because slavery ended so long ago. NEWSFLASH, slavery ended on Dec. 18, 1865, only 148 years years ago… only 3 or 4 generations ago. My grandmother’s grandmother was a slave. Then when you add the Jim Crow era and the Civil Rights era, black people have only been “people” by law for 50 years.
