As Rowena said in her comment, "Sounds like beer season is still trying to hang on".
Well, it is still indeed beer season and I recently picked up some brews from Minoh Brewery.
Their pale ale...very fruity and easy to drink.
Their weizen is cloudy, starts off fruity and has a slight bitter after taste.
Their pilsner is nice too. All three are perfect for this heat.
While walking around Umeda, I found honey wheat pretzels at Seijo Ishii (in really small bags)....When I got home, I melted some butter, added a sprinkling of dill, garlic powder and some powdered ranch dressing and baked it for 10 minutes.
Not the same as my mom's seasoned pretzels, but close.
I also found some fresh figs at the market, so I got some bleu cheese, drizzled some honey, nuked it for 20 seconds and then sprinkled some chopped walnuts.
The weather is still humid and hot but I think I'm doing a good job at keeping my tummy happy.
