    well that shocks me, you, the Natto queen!!
    Its definitely a taste and texture to get used too, its the foamy look that makes me leery,

    ice coffee is the best for such a hot weather.

    I love the fujisan mug! Want!

    Ah, I haven’t had natto for the longest time. I’m sure there’s some in the freezer. Yesterday I did have a bit of a nihonpoi dinner – miso shiru with broccoli and egg; sauteed courgettes, beef and carrots; multigrain rice And something different but from a Japanese magazine recipe – ninjin peperoncino – carrot ‘pasta’ with olive oil and chilli. No parmesan though which would have definitely made it even better than it was.

    Oh and I had udon with saba and mizuna on Monday at London’s best udon (and only?) place, Koya in Soho. Can’t even remember if it’s super authentic to me though! Demo, kekko oishi.

    I’m on a healthy eating kick trying not to eat sugar, sweeteners or white carbs. They all mess with my mood, energy and hormones.

      Does no sugar no carb work for Asians, too, you think? (I just cracked me up with that question!) Seriously, though, how do you contain your cravings for sweets?

      • sopchan Says:

        First three days: you get through those sugar less and cravings really reduce! It’s all because your blood sugar isn’t getting spiked all the time.

        HA ha. It works for this half Asian.

      By the way, misoshiru with broccoli doesn’t sound all that typically Japanese, does it. ;-)

  4. That mug is brilliant.

    (I’ve never had natto. I wish now that I had celebrated natto day!)

    I love the mug, too!
    I’ve never had natto and I doubt I’d order it…it does look a bit funky!

    I love how so many people are commenting on the mug because it’s the first thing I noticed too! Love it, and love all your crockery & utensils :)
