Summer Break

Just arrived at the airport. I will have 3 weeks off this year as well. I can't imagine to go back to the time when I was working in the US or Japan.
Going back home first.

Curry Dinner

A few differences from traditional dish, I used cabbage instead potatoes and used wild rice which made it dark purple. Was really good actually.

Light and Tasty

That was the theme for today's dinner. A lot of tofu and greens. And some fibers I had been missing past a few weeks. My body must have switched gear to digest different type of foods.

Homecoming Lunch

After 3 weeks out of town, or country,, I needed something I know what's in.
No meat but vegetables, which my body demanded.

Ireland Trip Six

Last day in Ireland. My friend cooked a traditional Irish breakfast including black and white sausages.
Three kids were also at the table with us. A crazy but wonderful weekend which I won't forget for a long time, if it is ever.

Fantastic Saturday with my friend's family in Kerry Ireland. Luckily we got a sunny day which is rare even in summer in Ireland.

Ireland Trip Four

One hour flight with this propeller aircraft brought me to this southern village. The view from my friend's house is amazing. Staying with 7 years old triplets is priceless. They are so adorable.

Dublin Part Three

After having suoer healthy meal fir lunch, needed something BAD.
So Chinese and ice-cream. Nice residential area close to the hotel.

Dublin Day Two

I could have spent another day on the city but decided  to go to outskirts. The botanical garden was the perfect place to spend an early summer day. Plus. I was able to eat much needed vegetables for lunch.
I think Enough is not their native language...

Dublin Part One

Never been in Ireland. Instead of going home, I came to Ireland for a week. I have an old friend living in South part of Ireland, so first I came to Dublin to do some sightseeing by myself.
Irish pub all over obviously, and everyone was drunk, so so was I.

Weekday Dinner

I try to bring home made meals to the table while I am in NYC. I finish my work by noon so I can cook dinner, while my lunch is alway leftovers,  which I love.
Today's menu includes mainly chicken meatloaf, and Kabocha cream stew. Both are freeze-able

Vegetarian Dinner

After a drink and carrots with hummus, our dinner was also vegetarian. Tofu replacing meat, and root vegetables with tomato sauce. Our always in the refrigerator bean salad. I think we had enough protein

French and Play

Spent the day in the city. After going to the gym, we were ready for some nice lunch. A small bistro serving not a typical American food. Crepe stuffed with bacon, ok it is not French, and onion.
Luckily we were able to buy tickets for a show, nominated for the Tony tomorrow. Fun and something different from our typical Saturday.

Friday Drink

Cosmopolitan with nuts my friend gave. Sweet and refreshing drink with nuts' a hint of spiciness.  Perfect to celebrate the end of working week.

Katsuo (Bonito) Tataki

I did not know we can buy this in NY but there was in the grocery.
This is how my brother in law taught me to eat, with tomato and cucumber along with garlic and ginger ponzu sauce.
Feel early summer for sure.

Apple Pie

We went to one of these whole sale stores yesterday despite we are.only TWO. We found this gigantic pie with the price tag of less than 7 dollars.  Call me cheap but we could not resist.
So now this will be our breakfast.

Kiwi Jam

My friend gave me her homemade kiwi preservatives.  I tried it on my favorite Essa bagel this morning.  It was surprisingly yummy along with peanut butter.
Who thought it is also good for preservatives besides eating with spoon.

Tai Yaki

Could not resist from this even though it was right before lunch.
Yum yum.

Lunch and Lounge Food

One of my favorite foods I would like to eat in Japan, soba noodle.
My hotel has decent lounge food for drink time. They had premium plum wine as well.

New Ginza Hot Spot

Every time I come to Tokyo, there is something new. Super high-end shops and stores. So many people visiting but not buying stuff.

Japan First

I bet this was influenced by you know whom. At least this is something positive in the sport world.

In Tokyo

One week of stay in Tokyo. Japanese and European sweets, along with Ramen which I have been craving for.

One Pot Meal

After 2 weeks of out of town, I had a crave for home cooking. One pot easy cooking though. Beef for one, and pork for the other.

Hotel Breakfast

During a week, I only eat fruits and cereal but when I get a chance I go for a full breakfast. At the lounge so quieter than main dining.

Weekend in Den Haag

Not often I spent the weekend in Europe anymore but this time was exception.  Spending the weekend in Den Haag. I personally like this city over Amsterdam as there are less tourists and feel more like Europe. Nothing really new to me, as I have been here several times already but found Japanese embassy in a prime location.
