After Dinner Walk

Love to take a walk after the dinner this time of year. Many people were out enjoying long day time. This flower reminds me the rainy season in Japan. I don't miss the rain though.

Home Cooking

As usual, weekend dinner was eat-in. New dish for me using pickled hot pepper source chicken. I got an inspiration from one of our go-to Italian places in the Bronx.

New Italian Place Found

We were in the mission to find a new place in Brooklyn, more specifically on Court street. This is what we ended up with. Simple yet very tasty authentic home made fresh pasta.

Back Home

After several days of the stay in Denver, I am back in the heights. One of the uniqueness Denver offers is the beautiful mountains. This is the shot from the airport. Can you see them?

Oldest Elevator...

Our office in Denver is in a very cool building. (I mentioned that this is a business trip, right?) This building has one of the oldest working elevators in the west half of the states I heard. It's like at the movie set.

Fish Tacos for Lunch

I had a nice lunch with J. I worked with before. Nice to have friends all over the country, so you don't have to have lunch by yourself. What's tomorrow...

Beach, Shopping, and...

Another great beach day. After 3 hours of relaxing time, we stopped by at an outlet for some shopping. There was a chain bar/restaurant and this was my late lunch. Guilty pleasure...

Beef Stew Dinner

Per someone's request, yesterday's dinner was beef stew. It came out PERFECT. As I don't follow the receipt, but heart, it comes out differently all the time. Now I know what type of tomato I should use.

Italian Dinner

At one of our favorite restaurants located in city island in the Bronx. It is a small island not so many people know about. There are many seafood restaurants but we like this Italian place.

Healthy Dinner

As promised, our dinner was a healthy one - fish and a lot of vegetables. Nice not to have heavy meals all the time. Oh wait, we do have two slices of chocolate cake from one of our favorite sweets places.

Trip to Costco

I know they now have outlets outside of US but this one we went today was huge. Many sample stations for munching... be careful not to try everything.

Blackened Chicken

Even though we had chicken for dinner yesterday, it was Friday after all, our lunch was a chicken dish. Rubbed in my secret mix and nicely blackened on the stove top and in the oven. I am thinking something light for dinner.

Laundry Outside

One more shot from Williamsburg. Can you see the laundry hanging between the buildings? It looks like in Hong Kong or some European countries. It is common in Japan to hang them outside but not here in the U.S.

Street Fair

It is this time of year. Street fair pops up everywhere. It is on the 3rd ave. in the city. I did not taste any of them but there are always good street food like pepper and sausages.

Steak Dinner

It has been a while since last time we did. Bone in rib eye steak. It was about 1.5lb, perfect size for two. It came out medium rare after finishing in the oven. This picture was taken while it was resting.

We went to Williamsburg as it was really nice weather today. There was food market outside where many Brooklyn original restaurants hosting outlets. One of our favorites was this doughnuts store. Hibiscus glaze was our choice.

Business Lunch

I know it is usually at a fancy restaurant but this time it was with my co-worker. We ended up at Chilly's. It is a typical family restaurant but they have decent burgers. Mine was BBQ burger. No shake this time though.
