clean up

dinner61711 The other night Satoshi had a gathering with his university baseball alumni...you should already read "trouble" because whenever these guys get together all they ever do is act crazy and drink.

He finally came home at 2:30 and it was horrible...the smell of you know what...ugh, I almost lost things myself with that smell.

It turned out it wasn't only the stench of one thing but of other things too...eep!

The place still smells really bad, there is not enough Febreeze to take the smell out, I think it is permanently ingraved in my nose too...blah!

Although he did clean up most of his mess, there were things which he wasn't observant enough to tell that "stuff" was on...so I ended up cleaning those things...sigh.

All in all, I am just glad he came home safely...

I want to end this post on a good note and tell you about my dinner that night.

I had a really junky apple, it was chalky not even sweet...I should have known better, apple season is in Autumn, but anyway since we had eaten half, I wanted to use the remaining half somehow.

I usually don't cook whenever Satoshi is eating (drinking) out, but this time I made a batch of bulgogi.

Since there was some takuan, leftover zucchini, carrots in the refridge, I thought it would be perfect to make some kimbap (Korean style sushi).

While I marinated the bulgogi, I cooked the zucchini and carrots in a lightly oiled pan. Then I cooked the bulgogi.

For the rice (which was leftovers), I sprinkled some sesame seeds and worked it through.

My nori is only about 2 inches wide and really long, maybe 6 or 8 inches?! It is perfect for musubi but not for making sushi with.

After spreading some rice onto the nori with slightly wet hands, I added a slice of zucchini and a slice of carrot, then topped with some sliced bulgogi and takuan...rolled it up and repeated the process until all my leftover rice was used up (which turned out to be 4 rolls).

I had this with Minoh Brewery's Weizen...yum!

So in the end we both did different types of cleaning, luckily the bulk of mine involved the insides of the refridge...

Oh and Happy Father's Day, we're off visiting MIL!

Sorry, I must have missed it. What happened to the apple?

I cannot understand Japanese men's desire to get s**t faced when they go out on binges.

I'm glad he came back home safely and you were able to end this post on a good note with the bulgogi recipe, which sounds very nice.

K and S said...

I am just glad that Satoshi did not have to be behind the wheel. That would be really scary!

The Mouse said...

Okay, got it. Sounds interesting. Mahalo.

K and S said...

so true Rowena! it is good that we have taxis & trains so that there shouldn't be any drunk driving, but bad because then they drink until they cannot walk :(

no problem Mouse :) sorry I confused you.

Take care you two.

Drink until they cannot walk?! Seen from that perspective, that is worse! I had no idea...I mean, these guys could fall down, hit their head on the sidewalk and hurt themselves bad. Wow...

elle marie said...

I really miss going out dancing, I've really scaled back because they still allow smoking in the pubs here (some, most, I could be wrong) I can't stand that smell.

K and S said...

yup Rowena, they can fall down, or get hit by cars or even mugged or all of the above, crazy yeah??

I haven't gone in awhile too Elle Marie, I can't believe I used to take in all that 2nd hand smoke!

Take care you two.

Yikes. Sorry to hear about Satoshi being drunk so bad.... In Japan people don't have to drive and rely on public transportation so it can be worse. I don't miss the alcohol smell train after midnight at all.

Someone deserves vacation time in Hawaii. (and I don't mean Satoshi)
