Fiesta Friday — food and cameras
Friday is in the future for most of you, but here, across the International Date Line, Friday is at an end and the party begins shortly.
I finished my work day at noon and went out for errands and entertainment in Ginza — today’s agenda involves Nikon and meat: I bought a new camera (Nikon D7100) and I picked up some pork and beef.
I’ve been doing a lot of test cooking this month, so friends are crowding around my kotatsu tonight to scrutinize my baumkuchen, popcorn (white) chocolate, baklava, stuffed breasts and little pork ‘n beef roll ups (pictured). To loosen their lips, I need to liquor them up – sober, Japanese people are restrained. Add alcohol and, well, did you read about Tofu Steak? (So we’re only having beer — and I’m pacing it.)
Last month tokyo dome held a regional food show where I found this craft beer from Saitama. Its full, dry, pleasingly bitter. I ordered a case. These are on the menu for tonight.
So, how do you spend your Fridays?
