It’s Monday and school is in session

Since I haven’t written one of these posts for a while, there’s plenty to catch up on.

First, up top are some new-to-us eateries. The first two are from Fugetsu, a Japanese okonomiyaki chain with its first US branch in Santa Clara. Okonomiyaki is a kind of savoury pancake full of vegetables and some meat. We had a pork and cheese one. As well as one with mentai noodles (Pollock roe).

We also did have a nice Christmas Day dinner with ham and all the side dishes and a homemade Black Forest Yule log, complete with meringue mushrooms and matcha shortbread Christmas trees.

We were in Santa Cruz for a few days before Christmas, staying at a house near West Cliff Drive. We had lots of walks by the sea and this is the Natural Bridges park at sunset.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date
