Yesterday, I met up with some of my beading friends and we had lunch in Umeda.
By the time we finished, it was mid-afternoon, definitely too late to gather ingredients to cook, so, I decided to buy something for our dinner.
There was quite a crowd trying to buy different foods also and man, the price for food on Christmas eve was pricey!
Since Satoshi probably wouldn't come home early, I decided to buy salads instead of chicken or something fried.
A roast beef salad and a spinach salad. (By the way, the price for chicken is so expensive you could probably buy a whole chicken (or two) for the amount they were charging.)
After buying dinner, I went upstairs to the sweets floor.
The counter which I bought these from, Hamburg, has a shop in Mikuni. (I've seen the shop from the train and often wondered what kind of shop it was, so I googled to find that it was a cake shop and that they have a counter at Daimaru Department store.)
This is what I bought for Satoshi...chocolat mont blanc. He said this was delicious, chocolate and marron (chestnut).
And this was the cake that I got for myself..mini bouche noel (mini yule log). For the size, this tiny cake had a LOT of cute decorations on it.
Total cost of our dinner...2904 yen (about US$29.04).
Oh and Santa actually came by early to bring me the iPhone3GS last week...one of first things I downloaded was Kalapana's "For You I'd Chase a Rainbow".
I hope Santa brought all you wished for. I'm meeting my friend for coffee today, it will be interesting to see what I can find for our dinner tonight.
