Some of the fabulous food gifts Japanese family brought. They know the way to my heart besides bringing themselves and the lovely Mia.
But Oh My Goodness the food.
Udon, ramen, flavored crackers/chips, sauces, cookies all my favorites and some new ones that are pictured here !
The three small bottles on the left are special handmade salad dressings, bowl filled with crackers, the fantastic green topped bottle filled with a ponzu sauce made from a special sudachi lime, and yellow and green yuzu and the gorgeous green bottle is a Sudachi dressing.
But my new addiction/craving is the very small rather plain orange labeled jar in front.
It is made from Yuzu citrus peel, Tokarashi a Japanese spicy pepper and salt. It is all mush together into a green paste.
You use it like a condiment a little goes a long way much like wasabi
Use it in udon, sauces next to veggies and potatoes, mix with ponzu sauce for a dipping sauce, perfect on chicken and fish.... I am in love. Step aside wasabi I still love you but. . . there is a new spice in town.
DIL is better and enjoying the last three days of their vacation.
Hamish's operation was a success and is now home.
New roof repairs held during last night rain.
To all my special blogging friends on the East Coast, stay safe and keep well I am thinking of you all.
I have lived through a raging wildfire and never had the warning you all have. We drove out from my home with the fire raining down on us. Escaping with our lives and nothing else. So please be safe and take care.
