Visit From Miriam

Last weekend, our friend Miriam visited us. Miriam is also from Pittsburgh, and lives in Shiga Prefecture. She’s doing the JET Program.

First, here are some meals I made last week.

Heurvos Rancheros Enchiladas 001r

I made some huervos rancheros enchiladas for breakfast. They were really good!

Soybean Lettuce Wraps 001r

I also made soybean lettuce wraps. They really didn’t have much flavor at all. I would probably not make this again.

At Nagoya Castle, they opened one of the rooms to the public, so you could actually walk right up to the walls to see the detail!
