Memorial Day Dinner

To celebrate the last day of this long weekend, we cooked meat loaf/ball for dinner. We wished we could have done BBQ but it would be luxury for NYC. With roasted vegetables. Yummy...

Creamery in Connecticut

We did not know there is any close enough to drive, but we found a good one in CT. It reminded me the one at Penn State and another one I used to go in Ohio. Three flavors and all tasted great. We are sure that we are coming back there sometime soon.

Home Cooking

Been a while since last time we had home cooking meal at the table. Some fish and "gobou" a root vegetable used in many Japanese dishes and you can buy at Whole Foods too. I needed healthy foods after being away for a long time.

Weekend Market

It is obviously European thing to have open make on the weekends.
In front of the church and there are a lot of food and other shops. I wish I lived here with kitchen to cook. Heading home tomorrow so one more day.

Dutch Queen

I drove to Den Haan today. It is about 40 minutes away. The Dutch queen live in this city. I missed her actually coming out from this building but people were patiently waiting. Very pretty and high end town.

This is a typical view of the old town of the city - canals all over. So many tourists and I don't see that many locals. I guess this is like the times square or Shibuya crossing in Tokyo.

After the Rain

It was a cold rain but the green is super clear. It remains Seattle, but better.
