Split Pea Soup with Roasted Cabbage
ローストキャベツ入りえんどう豆スープ

My husband and I recently started watching the TV show called “90 Day Fiance” on TLC. We found the show by accident, but now we are hooked (lol). The show follow Americans who meet someone overseas online, go see the person in his/her home country, get engaged (often), and then bring the person to the […]

Vegan Thanksgiving
ヴィーガン感謝祭

I hope everyone had great Thanksgiving yesterday. I wanted to post this last night, but I was too tired to do it after coming home late from our family Thanksgiving dinner and an attempt to shop (the line was too long to check out so we left without buying anything). So here it is. Like […]

We’ve attended some family gatherings, and we’ve learned to bring a dish (or dishes) that we can eat to such occasions. No problem. But yesterday we had a new […]
