A couple of thoughts about the last 2 pics I posted...

I post them because they come from great little shops in our area, who make honest, in-house bread or sweets. However, it's not like all French bakeries (boulangers) and pastry shops (patisseries) are automatically good...we have some pretty mediocre ones, not to mention the ever present supermarkets and hypermarkets and such... The bakery below just opened a couple of months ago, and unlike some other new bakeries in the area that have opened in recent times they are a real mom and pop place. Unfortunately the most popular bakery in the area has obviously factory-produced (although baked in-house) dough...they are popular though because they are in a convenient location and have parking. C'est la vie... even in France. ^_^;

Another bread with an aggressive crust...this one has candied ginger and citrus peel in it. Good French bakers make good bread ^_^ #dailypic (extra one since Instagram wasn't working for me yesterday )

Today is Girls's day or Peach Festival in Japan (March 3rd). Here's a typical dish that's served, hamaguri-zushi or clamshell-shaped sushi. (No clams in it though, and you can make it quite easily if you have egg + rice + filling. ^_^)

S&B Foods (they make spices and herbs and things, e.g. curry powder), has an adorable series of animated GIFs called OhaSupa, to promote the use of spices for breakfast dishes mainly. Here's one where Papriika convinces Parsley-kun that she's not hot and angry like Haba(nero) and Chili. They then collaborate to make cream cheese on toast with paprika and parsley. Check out the rest of the series for an overdose of kawaii. ^_^

Photo from an NHK program about "regional cuisine" (gotouchi gurume). Inexpensive regional cuisine is being used enthusiastically by many regions/towns/etc. on Japan to draw in tourists. The photo is of yakisoba (pan fried noodles) with potatoes, from Tochigi.

Still very sick with flu ...so another pic of Ken Watanabe in a 1990s tv series, Gokenin Zankuro. This is one of his career defining roles, and shows his chops as a comic actor. #day44 #dailypic
