Here are some things I am liking (and disliking) this week...
So we can end on a good note, let's start with the things I am disliking...The new McFlurry...it is mint with oreo cookies but there is this really fluorescent blue goop that is mixed into the soft serve and doesn't taste minty at all...blah!
Another thing I am disliking is the fact that the a/c that came with our apartment is on the fritz...luckily, in another room we have the a/c that we brought with us to our apartment, only thing is that this room has no tv or access to the computer...sigh.
The super of our building says he will change the a/c for us either Friday or Saturday (yeah!), since the repair guy was asking for almost 100,000 yen (about US$1000), to fix the combuster. (yipes!)
Okay, let's move on to the liking...
Mariage Freres teas...Bolero (a flavored tea using fruits from the Mediterranean), Iskandar (a green floral tea with a hint of mint), Wedding Imperial (assam with caramel flavor). I received Wedding Imperial along with another flavored tea from my blog friend PT! (thank you!) I am enjoying these iced.
Starbucks' walnut fig pound cake...280 yen (about US$2.80). Moist with lots of fig and walnuts.
Macadamia nut pesto with Laughing cow cheese on Moisan's naturelle ficelle. Moisan, a well-known French bakery will be shutting its doors at the end of August, as the department store they are in (SOGO) will be closing. I recently went to pick up some poppy seed ficelle but they were out, so I got this and some hazelnut-walnut rolls instead.
Aoi mikan (green tangerine) from the looks of them they look unripened but when you cut them open they are bright orange! and so sweet too. We recently got 6 of them from my MIL and I squeezed them all for our breakfast the other day. About 3 was enough for a cup.
Boulangerie Monsieur H's breads...we recently received a boxful of assorted breads from my host-sister who lives near this bakery, I had these slices for lunch with some cheese....look at all those dried fruits and nuts! (Thank you!)
Pierre Marcolini's biscuits...we also received these huge biscuits from my host-brother's wife...chocolate chip cookies with ginger infused chocolate in the center...mmm! (Thank you!)
