Lunch: Leftover Nikujaga & Egg over Rice


Didn’t know how hard to cook for 10 people. I was going to prepare one more dish but couldn’t make it. It seems that everyone enjoyed the meal.


He found this fruit called Pepino Melon at Sprouts Market and had everyone try together. It tastes between melon and cucumber. It’s not sweet but juicy.


A friend brought Chocolate Panna Cotta. Yum.
