This morning I was able to sleep as late as I wanted knowing that I had nothing to do except meet a friend for dinner later this evening. And by “sleep as late as I wanted…” I mean until 0745! I tell you, my inability to sleep after 0800 is a real hindrance to my laziness!
I cooked some rice and served it with salmon, nattō (God I love this stuff!), umeboshi and tsukudani-kombu, which is essentially kelp but I’m not sure of the precise name in English. I’ve run out of dashi, hence the missing miso soup, and this chick doesn’t do that instant crap. I opted for a pot of matcha. Yes, the Japanese and the Brits share a love of tea, which explains why we get along so well!
7 hours after having breakfast (and only a pot of nettle tea since), I’m still not hungry, which is great for my figure but doesn’t bode well for my dinner plans. Did I mention that Japanese is on the menu this evening as well? Oh I cannot wait: good girl chat and authentic Japanese cuisine! Sign me up!
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
PS – researching for a trip to Italy this summer.
