First off, MIL will be having skin grafts which will be done over the next two weeks. This is supposed to prevent the area from becoming infected. Apparently her injuries aren't severe just covers a large area. Hopefully it all goes well.
So, what did you have for Thanksgiving? I hope you were able to spend some time with family/friends and had a lot to eat.
As for me, it wasn't a holiday. In fact, most weeknights Satoshi comes home so late that we almost never eat dinner together.
The past week, he has been preparing for a big meeting, leaving work late (midnight) and going to work early (7-ish)...I think he's caught a cold too.
I get up to make him breakfast, but let me tell you, that leaves me very sleep deprived and feeling like I am jet-lagged or have a hangover all day long.
I was definitely in no mood to cook yesterday, so I bought everything.
First off, we received a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau (thank you!). The Japanese go crazy over this wine every year, dunno why.
After tasting it though, I can probably understand, it is light, very light. Too light for my tastes.
I bought a pupu platter from RF1, a sozai (pre-made) shop in the department stores.
We had roast beef (under that is a nice, chunky potato salad), quiche, ratatouille, grilled veggies, summer roll (w/smoked salmon & cream cheese) & olives.
And a salad with bacon, shrimp and egg.
For dessert, a coronet by Nakata. Flaky with sliced almonds and a delicious custard filling.
Not a feast, but just enough and definitely a nice treat (break from the kitchen).
Hope you have a nice weekend.
