Fun, Food and Friends

We eat a lot of yummy food in Nagoya – both at home, and in restaurants.

Last Sunday, we biked down to Pupu Kitchen for one of their “One Day Chef” Sunday lunches.

1300 yen ($13) got us Sweet and Sour Stir fry with soy meat chunks, greens and mushroom saute, carrot salad, spring noodle salad, chickpea patty, soup, rice, and sweet potatoes with apple sauce. Yum!

After that, we biked to Osu to go to Amica and to eat cake at Gateaux de la mere Souriante.

Teddy got a chocolate and banana cake.

Nabe 001

I also made nabe this week. It was my first try, and I think next time I need to make the broth more flavorful, but it was really fun!

We finally got back our pottery that we made way back in December with Takami!

I was super proud of the perfect shape of my cake. I don’t think I ever had one come out so nicely shaped!! It was a little too spicy, so next time I make it, I think I’m going to halve the spice – Japanese pepper is spicier than ancho chili pepper!

Here are the desserts! The one teacher brought a delicious creamy fruit salad, and another teacher brought almond spritz cookies!

Well, that is all for now! I hope you enjoyed the food!
