Nabe party!

Don, Robert, and I went to Kazuki's place with Akiko for a nabe party. Tanoshikatta! It was a nice night! Kazuki lives in Motoyama (Ii naa!) and his 7th floor view is gorgeous. Akiko pointed out where Ichiro, Momo, and who knows which other celebrities, used to live.

We missed the last train, so we walked home. Miraculously, it was WARM!! We didn't mind the 40-min walk home, and not only because we were drinking pineapple chu-hi and whiskey on the way.

However, just before we headed home, we went to Amataro to look for something Robert had forgotten there. As we left, Don fell down the stairs. And fell, and fell, and fell... it was horrific. Like the proverbial guy falling down the escalator who never stops falling. His ass is gonna be deep blue by tomorrow.

Hey, yet another reason to drop everything and come to Japan. (^_^)

I really love nabe, too. My boyfriend can never understand why I like it so much. This evening's host is the president of his uni's cooking club, so he's a bit of a perfectionist. Wow.

Incidentally, strawberry mochi-cakes seem to be in season at the moment. That's a strawberry cake INSIDE a strawberry mochi. (It's a February thing.) Cool that you made mochi at home!

Another three weeks and it will be ume season. Plum wine, Mmmmm....

Oh yeah, you know about mochi rice, right? They use a stickier uber-rice to make mochi.

Ooh, I wish I could say. It could be anything. The one we had last night featured leeks. The smaller ones are just called "negi," which is the generic term for onions.

My favorite thing about nabe is daikon -- the huge white radish. Oishii!!!
