Delicious Food and Drink

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated, partially out of laziness, and partially because I’ve been really busy!

At the end of November, we invited the other American teachers over for Thanksgiving dinner.

Amana is patiently waiting for the feast to begin! We had stuffing, mashed potatoes, breaded tofu, bread, salad, candied kabocha, and pizza.

I even made pumpkin pie for dessert.

The following weekend, we had a sleepover for all of our students (8 girls and 5 boys, ages 6-10). It was a really fun time, but tiring. 😀 The day after, we went to a sake tasting festival with one of the teachers and one of the preschooler’s parents.
