Let's start with the good...
Ippudo in Ikeda brought back my favorite ramen, the Karakamen, a spicy tonkotsu broth topped with miso flavored ground beef and cashew nuts.
The bad part is when I reached to get a shot of my ramen, the camera literally flew out of my hands and part of it went *plop* into my ramen!
I was in shock for a few seconds before fishing it out.
Luckily, it wasn't the battery or memory card part of the camera that fell in, unluckily though it was the lens and lens cover...which is why my photo has a nice fuzzy texture to it.
After I got home, I wiped the camera down several times, hopefully it will be okay.
The weather has been flip-flopping between humid and cool.
Since I'm not much into standing by the stove these days, I threw together a wheatberry salad for dinner.
The good thing about this salad is that to cook the wheatberry and grain mixture, I threw everything into the rice cooker, which I totally loved because I didn't have to stand by the stove.
Recently, we had Jever Pilsner, a German brew.
Very bitter but really nice with all the nibbles and noshes we've been eating.
More good things than bad equals not so bad, hope your week is going well.
