Wednesday In Japan. . . Sushi Dinner

Fabulous Daughter in Law cooked the most wonderful dinner.
Oh My goodness !
 Supplies from Japan.
Thank You, wonderful family !
 Marinated pickled mushrooms.
I can't even tell you how good theses are.  Just served on sushi rice is heaven.
 Best label ever.
 Getting ready to cook.
 The small cans are the dipping sauce for the summer dish of cold soba noodles.
Mushrooms, rice, soba noodles and spice packs for Chirashi sushi or 
what we call family sushi.

 And here it is before the added green onions.

 And here is the dinner, from the top
We had artichokes DIL loves them but hard to find in Japan.
Kimchi and Pork.
A molded potato type jelly (?) sliced super thin like Sashimi with green onions.
The Chirashi sushi, cold Soba noodles and the dipping sauce in a can.
Best dinner ever. 
 DIL is a fabulous cook and had her own restaurant (breakfast and lunch) for 
many years.

Here is your pretty (or interesting) for mid-week.

  1. It's so nice to have family willing to cook! My son does takeout. I love that.

    Left something for you on my blog....

    1. Yuko is so wonderful !
      She always cooks us a fabulous dinner when she visits.

  2. Wow what a fantastic dinner! I love chirashi sushi. Now I'm craving it!
    I've never seen soba noodle dipping sauce in a can before. I don't know if it's something new or maybe it's only me who didn't know. Very interesting!

    1. I have never seen the Soba dipping sauce in a can before either.
      It was so good. Plus they were able to bring it here with out it breaking !
      I love Chirashi Sushi too. The packets had such great seasoning I felt like I was back in Japan.
      Will have to put this on my list of good things to ask for them to send me.
      When I lived in California I had two wonderful Japanese Markets to shop at.
      But here in Tucson two I usually shop at two very small Korean stores and I order over the internet.

      I so miss living in Japan.
      Meanwhile son was eating his way through Mexican foods and Burgers.

  4. It all looks so interesting Parsnip - do I take it son does not like Japanese food?

    1. hahaha I wrote that wrong, I have two sons. One who lives in Japan with his family, he is a teacher and one who has now moved back to live with me for awhile. A super terrific daughter and a daughter Nicole, who died.
      While visiting, Japanese son has been trying every burger and Mexican food restaurant before he goes home to Japan.
      We all enjoy Japanese food.

  5. Everything looks fascinating, how wonderful that your daughter in law cooked a delicious meal! The Tokyo Olympic pin is beautiful.

  6. Wonderful. I love how inspired and excited you are.

    PS: Wegmans is a food market/grocery store with lots of fun things.

  7. I really am lucky my family is really wonderful.

  8. Any leftovers? I think not! Kate Bush's concerts are going down a storm here!

  9. I would love to come to dinner.
