Cooking with Friends!

I’m sure everyone has noticed, but cooking with friends is probably one of my favorite activities!!

Saturday night, two friends slept over, and the three of us went together to church the next morning. After I got home, one of my friends mailed me to see if I wanted to hang out more. We went to a cafe with two other girls, and then came back to my place for dinner and a movie.

While we were cooking and cleaning, we also took silly pictures.

Here I am, taking out the trash. Nagoya trash collection is pretty specific – we have 6 types that go out each week, and a few other types collected less frequently.

We took a break from our movie (Maleficent – absolutely amazing film) to eat our dinner.

Today, Teddy’s friend Ben and his wife Saeko came over to make pierogies.
