Ugh I was hit with some kind of cold bug again last week. It just seems to be a winter of colds and coughs over here. I’m so grateful that the husband was able to work from home for a bit as I really was unable to drive the kids to school that day – the cold just made me very whoozy and I didn’t want to risk driving. That was also the day I binge-watched the last season of Terrace House: Opening New Doors. Oh man was that dramatic or what!! (There was off-camera conspiring, and a sock saga!) Also there was a hint of a new season in Tokyo! Can’t wait. Do you watch Terrace House?

Lunch at Dish Dash. I had a craving for baba ghanoush!
I tried making dorayaki or Japanese red bean pancake for the first time.

Finally finished The Big Family Cooking Showdown season two and I have a lot of things to say about it. So I’ll maybe actually write a post for the weekend!
We were in San Jose and picked up some mochi – the cube at the bottom left is mango. The pinkish one is white bean inside. There was also green tea. And the rest were red bean paste.
Maybe Japanese curry again. The kids have been asking for it!
And I’ve been wanting some kind of soup. I made tomato soup last week but am trying to make something else. Any suggestions?
