doyo no ushi no hi

Yesterday was Doyo no Ushi no Hi, the day when everyone eats grilled unagi (eel) to build stamina for the heat of summer, which I've written about here.

Well, since I had planned for it to be raining from the typhoon and that maybe we wouldn't be able to get out of the house after our vaccines, this was our dinner last night...corned beef and cabbage.

The heat is pretty brutal this year too, so I'm sure we'll eat some grilled unagi in the weeks to come...

They have corned beef in Japan? --N

thinking of making unagi this weekend. I only have one.
Do you know, the Japan unagi at Nijiya here is $40!!! My boss buys an unagi from China from Nico's for about $17. Ahhh, one or two won't hurt. I hope.

Other dish I want to make is Samgyetang, ginseng chicken.

Too hot for Samgyetang,V…I think most of the unagi here is about $20 and most are farmed.

Take care.
