I took a much needed day off on Friday and went to a neighboring city to visit a friend. We went to Mino and visited a bread shop and had tea.
I can’t remember the name of what we had, but it was wonderful tea! It was sweet without sugar and had a citrus flavor. We couldn’t decide on bread, so we got two different ones and shared. It’s not in the picture because we already ate it! 🙂
For lunch, she taught me how to make chirashizushi and daikon salad. It was yummy and much easier to make than I thought it would be. (the photo is borrowed and not actually of what we ate) I have learned to love daikon. There is so much you can do with it and it has virtually no calories! I’ve been doing some reading about the Japanese diet. Japanese women do not show their age as quickly as western women and there are not near as many overweight Japanese women. They contribute it to what they eat. I need to take more lessons from these women that I live among!
