Happy New Year!!!
Wishing y'all a happier and less stressful 2006.
2005 was definitely a very hard year for many people. Lots of adjustments. "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger". Yup. Definitely. I've learned about lots of stuff this year, lots of it bad, but the end of 2005 has been better- the outlook much brighter.
Friday was a day of sisterly bonding. K & I went to San Jose J-town for the usual groceries for New Year's. Last year I tried using the frozen veggies - all prepared and just throw into pot. Yes, having the taro root already cleaned and peeled was lovely, but it wasn't worth the loss of taste. (I didn't use the mixed veggies for last new year's, just the taro root) I have to be careful when I peel taro because the stuff makes my hand itch.
Dobashi Market is closing on January 15th. *sniff* Now I have to find a convenient place to do my japanese grocery shopping. I know I can go to San Francisco, but I really don't like SF's j-town.
Picked up taro, daikon, ita konnyaku, takana, kyuri, renkon, bamboo shoot, kamaboko (green with bear paws, white with cherry blossoms). Had a quick lunch at a new restaurant (Sushi Mart). T'was good - grilled saba and tempura.
Dropped of the groceries and then picked up G and we went to see HP:GoF. Yay! No projector problems. We all enjoyed it very much. Between the three of us - the large popcorn disappeared BEFORE the movie even started. Scary.
Dinner was Burger Fling. S dropped off the kids and we watched Polar Express.
