Winter is Here

Well, I can't really complain...

After all, winter here only lasts about 3 months, and yes, it is a little chilly, but I grew up knowing how to dress for the weather, so when I drive my scooter on rainy days I look alot like the Michelin Man, or the Pillsbury DoughBoy, decked out in yellow wet weather gear with 3 heavy sweaters underneath my kevlar jacket. But that doesn't mean that I don't come home cold and a bit miserable - I can never manage to avoid getting rain down the back of my neck...

So tonights dinner was quick and easy, hot, filling, and above all tasty. Ikura-don, or salmon roe on a bowl of rice, with Furikake . I love the salty sweet burst of the eggs, they are so incredibly unctuous and lux. What a great way to get over the grumps!

And because I have a waste not want not philosophy,

while my rice cooked I turned my leftover The Bread into
garlicky croutons.

Hey Paz,
Well, get our your virtual spoon and dig in - and if you ever make it out this way you are more than welcome to the real thing!
