So, we’ve been kind of taking it easy since our move because we’re kind of tired from moving, and we’re trying to save money (we have some cool trips coming up this winter!!)
I have shared the delight of homemade Pittsburgh-style pierogies twice in the past two weekends though!!
Me and Teddy with two of our coworkers (who also live in our same building!) We made jalapeno-cheddar pierogies, salad, and kabocha soup.
This weekend, we made pierogies again with my friend, Takami. Here we are, stuffing away.
Our army! We made 53 pierogies!!
Teddy is smiling because, once again, he did not have to stuff one pierogie.
We also made little sweet potato molds. Here I am, wrapping one up.
The meal! We made, in addition to pierogies and sweet potatoes, minestrone soup, salad, and lotus root saute.
Takami made these delicious little tarts for dessert!
This weekend, we also tried a new pancake place that opened at the mall. It’s called Huit Huit (the Japanesily butchered version of French for 88).
However, they had FRENCH TOAST PANCAKES. Yes. They were delicious.
We also tried the caramel apple pancakes. Also delicious.
Yesterday, we biked to Osu and got some Indian food at Inpal.
We shared a yummy salad.
We also got the vegetable samosas. In Japan, they always serve samosas with ketchup. What are they supposed to be served with? Cause I’m pretty sure ketchup is not normal.
We got the paneer and pea curry, because the paneer is made at the restaurant. It was good.
For our nan, we got the garlic nan.
After eating, we walked around for a while. We ended up at Shirakawa Koen, which was super pretty with all the fall colors.
This rabbit statue near the entrance is super creepy.
Fountains, sculptures, and fall foilage.
That cool building in the background is the science center’s planetarium.

Well, that is all for now! Hopefully I will have more beautiful fall foilage for you next weekend!
