Cold Mugicha
Soba & WASABIIIII
Late Night Sashimi
Fresh Tofu with lots of Ginger
Belly-full of Suika
Edamame & beeruuuu......burp!

I may be very uncultured, but the edamame and beeru excite me most.

Nina said...

Wow. Those were such beautiful pictures (with the exception of the watermelon rinds, that is)! I think I'll just come back here next time the heat gets nigh unbearable & have praise time while looking lovingly at these pix, thanx!

Argh I miss Japanese food
But I don't miss Japanese summers...heh
Mushi atsui is the worst heat to deal with

Metal Factory said...

WOW! You're a great cook!

Flo-ji: Edamame is very exciting, indeed!

Nina: Really, you didn't like the watermelon one? I thought that one made me the most hungry!

Niki: You're right, there's not really any food that can take away the dreadfullness of "heatwave". I guess that's just my way of doing the "sour grapes" thing.

Mr Metal: I didn't actually cook all these things & take these pics. I'm too lazy & just googled them!

I think the hiyashi-chuuka makes me the most happy. Wait no, maybe the kakigori, or the edamame.
Durnnit, I can't choose.

BTW, I posted something on my blog for you!
Check it.

How come pictures of food I didn't make seem to solicit so many heartfelt reactions?

Mas, I couldn't remember if you loved hiyashichuka or hated it. It's Lani's favorite "LD".

Don't take it personally; we all know that u hv the skills to make each one of those dishes just as well as they look in those pix (particularly the watermelon rinds, haha)! The only thing lacking is time, & perhaps the very stylish tableware, else those easily could hv been pix that U took of your food!

And suika is an absolutely refreshing sight -- just not when it's half-eaten or nearly all-eaten. Kinda like maybe how a just-drained beer mug w/ nothing but traces of foam left might look to u. :S
