Dinner last night
Hiro's parents arrived yesterday morning on the overnight train from Odate. Hiro's mother, in an effort to show her appreciation for the fact that they were staying here before they embark on their 50th wedding anniversary holiday, had cooked food and brought it down. Kogomi (a mountain vegetable) and rolled egg I love. Simmered horsemeat and scallops cooked with shirotaki (no idea how to translate that - noodle made from some kind of potato) I am not quite so excited about.
With some rice and mushroom and onion miso soup it made for last night's dinner. I can "offer it up for the holy souls" when eating elsewhere; it's not so easy to do on home turf...
