So here I am back in California for the next two months from my temporary home in Japan.  We are visiting my family and introducing our 4 month old to them for the first time.  But what I really want is to eat all the food I miss oh so dearly.   So my brother and his wife decide to take my hubby and I to dinner.

AND WHERE DID THEY HAVE THE BRIGHT IDEA TO TAKE US????????

To their favorite restaurant of course!!

And this is what we ate…

YES THAT’S RIGHT JAPANESE FOOD.

Rolls, rolls, and more rolls, edamame, tempura, and garlic fries.

But hey I love ’em and so I gladly eat the food I can get back home.

At least it was good.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!  Do you even really realize how good one of those tastes?  Well, you might if you only get to have one every few months I like do.  I get to right now because I am back in California introducing our four month old to our families for the first time.  While doing this, we get to eat at all our favorite places and the ones we miss oh so much.  I just can’t wait until I get to eat fresh never-before-frozen chicken, ah yummy.   But for now I will revel in the fact that I just had an awesomely fantastic cooked tortilla over the open gas range.

Oh the simple pleasureful flavors in life.
