Dinner with Takami

Last night, our friend Takami, who we had met originally in Pittsburgh, was in Nagoya for the weekend. So, we went over her house to make dinner together.

When Takami lived in Pittsburgh, we would get together 4-5 times a week to practice our Japanese and English together. Every Friday, we’d have a major cooking session because I only had to put in half days at my internship.

Whenever we get together now, we still cook, but since she is living in a different town, it’s not very frequent.

We made salad, avocado pasta, and tomato soup. The salad vegetables all came from Takami’s father’s garden. She also boiled some corn from his garden. It was all delicious!

Takami’s friend Masayo works at a bakery, and she brought us these really yummy cream-filled poached peaches. She also brought roll cake.
