I recently attended my first “Takoyaki Party” at my friend Kelly’s house! It was an awesome girls’ night with lots of delicious food. This was my first time making octopus balls- they turned out so tasty! We even tried adding things like yakisoba, crab, and sausage to a few of them.
I also mistakenly assumed that it was Kelly’s birthday and gave her a present, even though we had celebrated her birthday in October together (how did I forget that? I also royally messed up on switching trains to make it to the party, so my brain must have been busted that week after recovering from my flu-esque cold). That was pretty embarrassing, but she was a good sport about her new “hostess” gift.
