Gifts from Japan
There is something so outrageously sweet about a friend who thinks to bring gifts back for me when they have been out of town. When darling Andrew got back from Japan he brought me a great little bag full of interesting foods. Some of which, sadly, we still can’t identify. (What with our silly inability to read or speak Japanese and all) The soy sauce is terrific. Very complex and lovely. The chocolates were great, though the flavor (again) unidentifiable as was the jar of mystery food. Was it bamboo? Lotus Root? Don’t know. The best thing though? The mini soy sauce fish. SO cute! I just thought I would put up this quick post to say thank you to him for being such a groovy and thoughtful friend. And for having excellent culinary taste.
During Passover, Coca-Cola makes some of their soda with real sugar instead of corn syrup. The bottles with real sugar are marked "Kosher for Passover. "
Ninety-five percent of peas are frozen or canned.
