Wednesday in Japan and wooden trees.

Oh My Goodness eat your heart out Martha Stewart !
 This is the way you should cook.
.

.
My two sons were away at university.
I had just moved and daughter was a senior at High School.
She was also taking Japanese class at night at the Junior Collage.
Every morning before school we would watch a Japanese TV serial,
on a LA TV channel 36.
At the last five minute they would show 3 Minute Meals. 
.
The two cooks above were the chefs on the 3 Minute Meals.
The meals of course took longer but were presented in 3 minutes.
We adored them.
Daughter sent me this video of 3 SECONDS Meals.
I died laughing !
yert !

 I designed a wooden Christmas Tree for the Kitchen nook or the Library.
I am not sure were this will end up but I was so excited that I had to post the tree.
The tree can be flat or fanned out.
.
 It is a bit hard to see with the lights outside.
.
.
The lights on the tree are tiny dots on copper wire. I am crazy about them.
I will try to get a better photo when there is not so much reflection.
.
Christmas is coming the goose is getting fat !

lights. . . parsnip
music. . . Oh Christmas Tree,  The Muppets

Update:  comcast wants more money so they are slowing the internet down
 and it is hard to connect. They want us to buy some new equipment. 
money money money
So I will be missing some of your blogs off and on.
Sorry
