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.

Big Bin

Standard

Yes, Mei-Shun washed it up. Plum liquor was stored within for 8 years, always made her feel relaxed. It was Shin who picked fruits of a rare, wild plum called 皆平早生=kaidare-wase grown in a mountainous forest in Wakayama Prefecture. Quite small in size compared to normal ones, yet thinner peel gives soft texture. She moved left delicacy into 2 smaller bottles, toward a refrigerator.

North and South

Standard

Well, well, Mei-Shun’s table would be full of desserts again. Above one chocolate bag came from Hakodate, the other big cookie from Takamatsu. Each of them has cheese cookies and 和三盆 candies still wrapped squarely by paper. It is within a decade since the former joined her list of favorites, while three have already passed for the latter when she and Shin worked for the same company.

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.

Autumnal Art

Standard

Shin went on a business trip to Tokushima, home town of beloved Master Mei-Shu. He always brought home sweet delicacies, yet salty one this time because of above beauty. Mei-Shun received a regular message from 両口屋是清 the other day, charmed by such an amazing technique that ordered it immediately. The husband loves the lower half,  while the wife the upper.

十五夜

Standard

We are on lunar August 15th, the best full moon of the year 仲秋の名月 is expected tonight. It is also called 芋名月=imo-meigetsu, a good moon of potato. Not meaning cut-surface shape of normal one, but the beginning of taro season. Mei-Shun loves it, while gloves are indispensable to wash and peel fresh ones. And oh, thanks a million for bringing souvenirs made of sweet potato, Shin.

Enjoy Excursion

Standard

Mei-Shun visited a hair salon nearby Tokyo Station for a cut. Cool weather started just at the beginning of September let her decide to make front hair again. She met with Shin who is heading for Osaka, ate out together after longer than a whole month. Now she has 2 hours before the appointment. Shopping would not take so much, may she come earlier? … thanks a lot, see you in 30 minutes.

Double Dolce

Standard

Oh, how delightful it is! Or they are Mei-Shun means. Shin ordered a rolled cake on business, yet received two at home by his wife on weekend. It is a kind of dream for her to eat this nostalgic sweets until feeling full up. Hmm, one is coated by sliced fruits under jelly while the other whipped cream. They gave almost no effect on the scale she got on tonight after dancing with Princess Maria and Ms. Bunny Girl.
