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.
I made some huervos rancheros enchiladas for breakfast. They were really good!
I also made soybean lettuce wraps. They really didn’t have much flavor at all. I would probably not make this again.
Friday, Miriam came, and she brought us many yummy things, including this butternut squash!
More yummy treats from her town!
We made English muffins, seisage, and maple soy tofu for breakfast!
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!
We were impressed by how each feather had been carefully painted.
These flowers were actually 3D!
One of the tatami rooms.
More super detailed birds.
That evening, Takami came over and we all made dinner and dessert together.
Tada! Dessert is ready!
Dinner is served!
We made Chinese food for dinner.
Sunday, we took Miriam to see Inuyama.
This cat shutter was super cute!
This is Wanmarukun, the mascot of Inuyama.
Me and Teddy being cute.
The storm clouds were rolling in.
Another shot of the storm.
A tiny model of Inuyama Matsuri.
These genmai dango were delicious!
Teddy and I got yummy milkshakes.
Miriam got this cute shaved ice!
Well, that’s all for last weekend! The next post will be about today.
