My mom complained recently that I don't post enough pictures of food.
So, just for you, Mom, this is what I ate for dinner tonight:
Chicken nuggets from the grocery store plus salmon and tuna sashimi. I made some rice and mixed in a red bean sauce thingy. I also steamed some green beans in the microwave. Some soya sauce and wasabi on the side, plus a glass of Coke to wash it all down. Three Oreo cookies (not pictured) for dessert. Mm-mm, good.
And now, for everyone's viewing pleasure, other random pictures from Julie's Food Files:
Yakiimo, the famous sweet potato. There is a truck that drives around my neighbourhood in the evenings, at a super-slow speed, playing a recording over and over of a slow, somewhat melancholy song, and I found out recently that this was the yakiimo truck. Japanese winter-time snack food. I didn't buy this from the truck however (I should at some point, though I hear it is pricey) - this particular sweet potato snack was made for me by one of the women at work.
Hungry, hungry hippo. Burgers from Johnny Burger (I think that was the name) in Hiroshima back in October.
Plastic food model from a designer with a sense of humour, from the plastic food model factory/shop in Gujo-Hachiman where we went in September.
Non-plastic food and model in Gujo-Hachiman.
Oh wait. That's not food. This is me cozying up to the merchandise at the weird liquor store near my apartment.
I will endeavour to post more food pics periodically. Call it a New Year's resolution, if you will, or an empty promise with little chance of achievement - take your pic.
