Some more wonderful items from Japan with fabulous labels.
Wasabi crackers from the wasabi growing area
Azumino city, Nagano prefecture.
Dipping sauce for cold Soba noodles.
This can is small but designed so nicely.
Son also gave me some of the outstanding labels from some large
I sometimes frame them or put them on postcards.
A few weeks ago The Happy Wisk was talking about chocolate
I must admit that I am the only women in the USA who does not crave chocolate !
A piece of chocolate once in a while but it has to be filled with something.
So I was thinking what I crave and I couldn't think of anything.
I like lots of foods and I eat just about anything.
But craving ?
Cupcakes with really good icing, yum.
Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwich my favorite or my Lemon Bar recipe.
So good. I like all these but I don't have to have them every day.
But then a little light blub went off above my head.
I want sushi !
On summer days I really crave cold sushi.
So refreshing on a hot very hot super hot summer days in Tucson.
Yesterday it was only 102 !
I love the cool glistening slices of Nigiri in beautiful colors
spread across a lovely white plate.
Yuzu Miso Hamachi (yellowtail)
I could lick the plate.
Sashimi, slices of raw fish served over shredded daikon radish
Also Nigiri, which I don't have a photo of because I ate it before I took a photo.
Nigiri is a small molded rice with a dab of of wasabi and a slice of raw fish on top.
Oh My Goodness !
No overly fancy rolls or even vegetable tempura.
Just wonderful cold refreshing Sashimi and Nigiri.
Plus the last two years the salmon has been so good that after you dip it in a
dish of soy sauce it all but melts in you mouth. So buttery and soft.
I am also liking the Aji (Mackeral) this summer. Dense, oily and tasting of the ocean.
Yes, I think you could say I crave Sashimi and Nigiri especially in the summer.
But no chocolate.
And of course here is your pretty for mid-week
