Lovely Lunch

Standard

Purr, mom stays with me at home all day long. She went out yesterday morning, came back around tea time. Her oden simmered vegetables and fish balls are in a pot, continued to be boiled in dashi soup while added other ingredients. It became her meal after getting on a scale. What is the reason for your smile? Meow, a small bag would be taken from a 桜葛湯 box as dessert.

Snow Shoveling!

Standard

It continued toward dusk yesterday, forced Mei-Shun to cancel today’s reservation for horsey riding. She actually saw awful numbers on a scale on Wednesday, resumed exercise at home while cooking full of vegetables. お節料理=new-year feast beautifully arranged into tiered boxes, sake, rice cakes and ice cream are too tasty to refrain from. Now is the time of labor to allow Ms. Scarlet to move forward.

Rule Returns

Standard

Oh-oh, Mei-Shun’s English textbook called her “d.e.b.” again. She came home after dancing with Princess Maria around teatime. A scale informed her on a half of sugar bag added to the number shown last week. In fact, she knows the reason for it; party with alcohol and dessert on Friday night, instead of morning alone. Slight cold followed toward Monday, forced her to stay indoors with no exercise.

Saw So-So

Standard

Mei-Shun is cordially grateful to let you kind 451 followers know that she enjoyed above delicacy at 友部 last weekend. Well, her rule in weight control is to do so mainly on Fridays — after checking numbers on a scale, coming back home from her horsey riding club. However, last Thursday gave her the title while forced Shin to stay in Tokyo. That made both ends meet.

Nice Numbers

Standard

Mei-Shun was so happy seeing above title on a scale last night, that treated herself to 瓦せんべい from Tokushima Prefecture again. Six weeks have actually passed since she enjoyed this delicacy before, left just in one piece shaped like Mt. Fuji. Prepared a cup of coffee, she looked cookie package on the back by chance. What, below a postcard, its flavor and crispness is due by Nov. 18th?

Mt. 鳴春?

Standard

Yes, nice numbers on a scale let Mei-Shun treat herself to 瓦せんべい=well-baked cookie by くつわ堂 on weekend. It is big enough to cover Shin’s face completely, gave the wife one direct bite dreamed of for as long as 2 weeks. However, there seems to be bigger one available via internet. All right, when she reach the ultimate goal where 1.5 less sugar bag has gone.

Friendly Furs

Standard

Meow, my day a month is here. It was amazingly cold from morning till night below 15 degrees Celsius. Mom kept an air conditioner above my bed whirring all day long to warm me, purr. By the way, why do you continue to look pleased after coming home yesterday? Danced well with horsey, good numbers on a scale. Hmm, that’s why you enjoyed rice balls and sweet dumplings beyond 8 hours.

Full of Fruits

Standard

How cute they are! Thank you so much, Shin. He sometimes takes Mei-Shun by such a pleasant surprise, knowing her methods of weight control including candy-first one. She is getting along with others as well, to lose half a sugar bag since the last time of a slight shock. Now her hands and fingers are quite sore after dancing with horseies, you would be off tonight, Ms. Piano.

Rice Rounds

Standard

Mei-Shun resumed her cycle of our main staple. Simple and the best white rice, called 銀シャリ comes first. Her favorite breed above means “a silver crescent”, written in an unique kanji letter. Pearl barley or もち麦 would be added to the next, reasonable Ibaraki products often employed. Porridge is the last choice, kindly wash inner pan of her rice cooker.

Tough Tyre

Standard

It was the last lesson given by Master Bando this month. Actually, Mei-Shun took it just twice, caused by lower condition. She could not make enough dance with horseies either, for reasons of rainfalls and etc. added. Staying home sounds healthy in a pandemic environment? Well, if good exercise would accompany — she has got one more bag of sugar around waist again!
