Necessity ~必要なこと~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

Rolling blackouts, shipment stop of vegetable by radiation poisoning
and self-control mood...

We are trying to share the pain of mind with people in the disaster
area even while various confusion, of course.

But I think we need to cheer us up due to the recovery of Tohoku area
and all Japan.

We understand that the way to the recovery will be very long.

And it is very important that everyone go on supporting the disaster area,
isn’t it?

So I don't think we should do too much self-control to events.

I'm going to continue what I can do for support.


今日は、野菜ソムリエ協会理事長による復興支援チャリティーセミナーに参加しました。今、被災した方々ために何ができるか、みーんなが考えて、それぞれに実行していると思います。小さなことでも、それが大きな力になり被災地へ届くように、私も自分に出来ることを続けていきたいと思います。


Madeleine ~特別なマドレーヌ~

地震直後に届いた母の味。。。


I was in my home when the earthquake hit on March 11.
I felt the bigger shaking because our residence was the eighth floor,
and a few things dropped down and broke.
So I was scared, besides I couldn't contact my family after that.

And just after the earthquake I received a package from my parents.
There were madeleine cakes that my mother made in the package.
She is good at cooking and she used to make madeleine for us
in our childhood.
So I ate it and calmed down though I was lonely at that night.
I think the madeleine is exactly a taste of mother's cooking for me.

マドレーヌ
Actually there were 10 pieces madeleine in the box before I ate.(^_^;)

揺れが続く中、エレベーターが停止した8Fまで重い宅配便を届けてくれた業者さんにも感謝でした。。

Life is Wonderful ~精一杯のらくがき~

数日前の新聞で、被災地の小学校の壁に残された落書きの写真を見ました。
避難生活をしている小学生が手に泥をつけて書いたらしい大きな文字。

       『いきる 命はすてき』


Nothing is more precious than life, right?

I was not able to keep back tears again.

A few days ago, I looked at a photo in the newspaper.
It was the graffiti that was written by the students on the walls
of an elementary school in the disaster area.

They wrote that with mud "We live. Life is wonderful."

Oh…,it filled my heart, and I felt we can't say more words of
encouragement to them, because I think they already have been
doing their best.

And, nobody will not clean the graffiti from the walls, maybe.


For the Future ~持続可能な未来を求めて~

被災地への支援、復興を進めていく中でも大きな障害となっている
福島原発事故。
諸外国と日本が示す見解や反応の違い、錯綜する情報や専門家の意見・・・
私は得体の知れない不安にかられていました。
そんな中、是非観たいと思う一つの映画の存在を知りました。
未来のエネルギーについて、今、私達日本人一人一人が、
皆で考えなければならない大きな問題なのだと改めて思っています。 
これは、その映画の予告編です。



I believe the recovery of Japan.
And we should think whether we need nuclear power plants for peaceful
life in the future. I think so now.

A silent prayer ~横浜の空から~

東北関東大震災から一週間が過ぎました。

亡くなられた方のご冥福を心よりお祈りし黙祷を捧げます。

そして、いまだ行方不明の方々全員が家族の元に帰ることができますように。
被害に遭われた方々が早く笑顔を取り戻せますように。


One week has passed since the Tohoku Kanto Strong Earthquake.

I offer a silent prayer for the souls of the dead sincerely,
and I wish all the missing people can come back to their family ,
and I hope everyone in devastated area can get back their smile.

Now, it is only thing that I can do is to donate a little money and
to save electricity. However, I noticed that it is another important
thing to cheer me up because I want to help them if the necessary
opportunity comes.

It's the blue sky in Yokohama today.

今私に出来ることは、自分に出来る範囲の寄付や節電くらいしか
ないけれど、必要な時が来たら、ちゃんと役に立てるように
元気でいようと思います。

What should I do now? ~今私に出来る事~

言葉を失うほどの衝撃的な被害状況の中、まだ多くの方々が
辛く不安な時の中に居ることを思うと、ブログの更新を躊躇しました。

だけど、今日(3/13)の朝刊に私達の気持ちを集約した言葉があるように感じました。

以下、今朝の日本経済新聞記事から抜粋したものです。

『くじけそうになっても忘れてはならないことがある。
私達は、ひとりぼっちではない。
福島原発の被害を食い止めようと挑む消防隊員がいる。
韓国や米国など各国からも応援が続々と到着し始めている。
その働くすべての人々に家族があり友人がいる。
私たちは、助け合う。
なぜ自分の町が。なぜ自分の家族が。
想像を超えた事態にぶつかった時、頭に浮かぶのは「なぜ」の二文字だろう。
災いの中で人の心を強くするのは、一人ひとりが支え合う力だ。
国難を乗り切るため、自分に何ができるかを考えたい。』

March 11,the biggest earthquake hit the Tohoku area in Japan.
And the terrible tsunami attacked Japan one after another.
A lot of people died, and a lot of people are still missing,
and the earthquake caused extensive damage to Japan.
We should get over this difficulty together with all Japanese.
And I think we can do it.

アロエの芽、見るのも料理するのも食べるのも初めてでした。。。


I found an unusual vegetable in the market the other day.

I had never seen it.
This is the aloe's bud.

So, I made Tempura.

looks like gelatin, and was a very good tempura!

意外にクセもなく、茎の部分は透明なゼリーのような食感で、

先日、「旬の食材提案会」というイベントに参加しました。。

I went to the exhibition of the seasonal fruit and vegetables
the other day. The fruit and vegetables divided into the booth of the
antioxidation type, the immunological type and the detoxification type
were exhibited there.
And I knew the seasonal fruit and vegetables has the power to help
our health and beauty.

やさい068_ やさい091_
↑野菜と果物を『抗酸化系』『免疫系』『解毒系』に分けて展示。

And we were able to taste them.
The space of strawberries in the antioxidation type got excited
especially though I tasted a lot of fruit and vegetables.

いちご1 いちご3
↑9種類ものイチゴも試食♪初めて食べた熊本産の『ひのしずく』は甘くてとーっても美味しかった!
I ate nine kinds of strawberries at that time, and I tasted "Hinoshizuku" for the first time. It was very fresh, sweet and really delicious.

Well…,I have been learning fruit and vegetables, but there are a lot of things that I don't know yet.
If you have any information about fruit and vegetables I want you to share with me!

渋谷の『VIRON』でティータイム。。美味しい~

Today, I enjoyed eating cake and talking with my friend
at a nice cafe restaurant in Shibuya.

The cafe restaurant famous for bakeries made by French flour.
And, in the shop, we can feel the atmosphere like the cafe in Paris.

I ate "tart of citron" that the lemon cream is so delicious.

今日は楽しいひな祭り~~


In Japan, families with daughters celebrate March 3 by displaying
hina dolls to express the wish for their daughters' good health
and growth. We call "Hinamatsuri " in Japanese.

I don't have daughters, but I usually enjoy eating the food for Hinamatsuri.

I made Garnished sushi(Chirashi sushi)
ひな祭りconvert_20110303204035
Ingredients:rice, egg, salmon roe, lotus root, carrot,
mushroom, deep-fried bean curd, green soybeans, honewort,
white radish sprouts, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, sake, mirin.
I forgot to buy the salted of cherry blossoms today.
If pink joins, it becomes a lovely color food that seems Hinamatsuri.



Happiness and Kitchen ~幸せはキッチンから~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

先日、料理愛好家の平野レミさんの講演を聴きました。。


I took a few lecture about food recently.
One of them was the lecture by Remi Hirano.
She is a famous lover of cooking and chanson singer.
I like her talk and cooking because she has a positive idea
and very cheerful.

And she said happiness begin from the kitchen in the lecture.
Yes, I agree! I think so too.

It means that we have the healthy mind and body on eating
homemade dish that is nice and safe.

And consumer should have knowledge to choose good quality food.

So I'd like to learn about food more and more.

140種類もの栄養成分を含み奇跡のフルーツと言われるノニ 
美容と健康のために愛されるノニ飲料を使用したレシピ提案に参加することになりました。


Have you ever been to Tahiti?

Do you know Morinda citrifolia Linn(Noni)?

Noni is called the miracle fruit in Tahiti.

Have you ever drunk Noni drinks of Royal Tahiti?

I think Noni is a nice drink for good health and beauty,
and the Noni of Royal Tahiti has high quality.
But people don't like the Noni drinks very well
because Noni has a particular taste and smell,
so I became to propose the recipe for them.

So,I will introduce about the recipe on this blog sometimes,
and I'll do my best and having fun!
