Natural Character ~天然なのかぁ~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback


そんなはずないなぁ・・・と思うのだけど、よく言われるんです。
ナチュラルって~

Hi! How was your day?
I had my eyelashes permed today.
It's so cute! maybe...www
And my feeling became "runn,runn".
It means happy feeling.

And I bought a cooking book and a few cosmetics.

Yeah! my happy spring started!!

By the way, does "TENNEN"in Japanese mean simple character?

Actually many people say "You are TENNEN, aren't you?"
though I don't think so.

Oh, don't you laugh, please...




今日はスイーツはやめて、えんどう豆と豆乳のポタージュ。

Simple is the best!

こんな日もあるさ。。。

Hi, how are you?

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Today's weather was beautiful,
so I felt happy this morning.

But I felt down because I made a failure.
I can't explain about that on this page.
Sorry.

However I remembered an important feeling.

So I will carry out my original intention.

Thank you, today.



Cheer up!

On a Windy Holiday ~風が強い休日に~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback


昨日は夫のバードウォッチングのお仲間達とご一緒に、
三浦半島の先端にある城ケ島へ行きました。

Yesterday, I went to Jyogashima island for birdwatching
with my husband and his friends.
It was a sunny day, but a very cold windy seaside.
And we couldn't watch birds well.
So we gave up staying there.


久しぶりの晴天でも猛烈な風が吹き付ける海岸

景色は素晴らしい~でもお目当ての鳥には会えず。。。

But, we enjoyed shopping at Misaki fishing port
and ate a nice lunch at Sajima fishing port's restaurant,
and bought a lot of local vegetables at a market.


早々に切り上げ、三崎港でマグロを買ったり、佐島漁港でランチしたり、
直売所で野菜を買ったり(お野菜の記事はコチラから→)しました


そうそう、こんなの見つけて皆でビックリ→ガッカリ~
本物そっくりなフクロウさん

It was very fun and we had a good time!

Flying Fish ~飛び魚

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback


昨日はスーパーで飛び魚を発見!
以前、屋久島に向かうフェリーから飛び魚の群れを見たことがあります。
かなり長い距離を飛んでました。お魚が飛ぶなんて・・やっぱり不思議

Hi, How are you today?
By the way, have you ever seen flying fish?
I saw them on ocean near Yakushima island before.
They were flying pretty long.
It was wonder and interesting!

And I bought a flying fish at a supermarket yesterday.
Then we cooked and ate it for dinner last evening.
It was so delicious!!



体長40センチの飛び魚。このひれで大海原を飛んでいたのね~


内臓とウロコ取りは夫担当。オーブンでオリーブオイルの香草焼きにしました。
とても美味しかったです


Have a nice weekend!

Chooseing Happy Gift ~楽しい贈り物選び~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback


母の誕生日が近いので、昨日はプレゼントを買いに行きました。
ほんとは一緒に選べるといいのだけれど、遠く離れているので郵送。
でも、贈り物選びは楽しいです

Good morning! How are you?
I went to a golf shop to get the gift for my mother yesterday.
Because my mother's birthday is the end of this month.
And I chose two kinds of golf gloves for her.
One is a good drive glove for left hand.
Another one is a pair of gloves to cut ultraviolet rays.
The color are white and light pink.
My mother and I have same size hands.
So I tried on some kinds of gloves many time.
It was so fun for me!
I will send a package to her a few days later.

いつも母へのバースデープレゼントはゴルフ用品。
70歳を(とっくに)過ぎている両親ですが、大のゴルフ好き。
今でも二人で競い合っていて、負けず嫌いの母はかなりの腕前のようです。
娘としては、いつまでも元気で楽しんでほしいと願うばかり。。。



写真は全然関係ないけど、KIHACHIのイチゴとマロンのアイス。美味!

Have a nice day!

春分の日の今日、如何お過ごしでしたか?

Hi, today is the Vernal Equinox Day,isn't it?
How was your day?
I went to a furniture shop with my husband, and bought a kitchen board.
Then we went to a gardening shop, and bought some flowers and foliage plant.
Next we ate lunch at a Chinese noodle shop.
Yeah, the Chinese noodle was delicious but it was so heavy.
So,after that we went to gym and exercised hard.

Sweets Season ~スイーツシーズン~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback


毎年、クリスマスからホワイトデーくらいまでは、スイーツの嵐の季節
キレイなスイーツは見ても食べても幸せな気持ちになるのだけど。。。
でも、この半月くらいは鬼のように食べてたかも

Hi, thank you for coming to my blog.
Maybe as you know already, I have a really sweet tooth.
And I eat many sweets until white day from Christmas every year.
But, I feel I ate sweets too much.
And I need to lose weight.
So, I think it's a good idea to show the pictures of sweets that I ate lately.
Because it will be a warring to me....



霧笛楼のケーキ。ここの生チョコも大好き・・・

これは、ヘルシーなサツマイモのケーキだけど・・・

最近お気に入りの4℃フラッグスカフェ。必ず抹茶ドーナツ・・・

アンリシャンパンティエのフィナンシェなどなど・・・

この他にも頂きものがあったり、甘党の私には嬉しいシーズンなのですが、
スイーツ達よ、I will withstand the temptation.

速くて豪快な男料理! キッチンは大変なことになりますが・・・
でも、最近、料理の腕も片付けの技も上達したみたいです。
ブログネタに使われるのは好きじゃないみたいだけど~載せちゃう


Hi, thank you for coming to my blog.
As a matter of fact, my husband likes cooking.
He usually does cooking every weekend.
Before, I didn't like that because kitchen was messy
after he did cooking.
But, recently, he got able to use kitchen cleanly.
Yeah, it's always speedy and delicious!


男料理ならぬ夫料理!スピーディーさでは負けます。。。


夫の得意料理、アンチョビとキャベツのパスタ。


いつもサラダもてんこ盛り~


We enjoyed eating his dynamic dishes!

おはようございます
昨日は一日バタバタ・・・オマケに鍋を焦がしてショック
でも、いい知らせもありました~

Good morning!
It’s a beautiful day, isn’t it?

I was busy yesterday.
And, I scorched a pan when I was cooking meal for dinner.
Ah...I was really shocked.

But I got a good news yesterday.
One of my friends gave birth to a boy!
We have known each other since about four years when we studied abroad.
And she has been international marriage.
I was very glad to know the wonderful news.

And, yesterday, my mother sent email to me from Kumamoto.
My father and mother picked up horsetails(tsukushi) during their walking,
and she cooked.
I felt happy to know that.

Well, spring is coming soon.

Have a nice day!

Precious Life ~尊い命~

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback


3月11日を前に思うこと。。。

Today is my son's birthday.
I became his mother twenty-four years ago.
I can remember the wonderful scene clearly.
And, now, I think how precious life is.
Last year, a lot of lives were lost in the large earthquake.
It was really cruel.
And many people have been still in difficulty.
How hard, how painful, how sorrowful....
I can't express word well.
But, I want you to remember that we hold your hand always
from all Japan and the world.
Please do cherish your own precious life.


今日は息子の誕生日。
24年前、私が母となった日の感動を思い出します。
そして、今、命がどれほど尊いものかと改めて思います。
昨年、多くの命が大震災で失われ、そして、まだ多くの方々が困難の中にいます。
どんなに大変で、どんなに辛く、とんなに悲しいことか・・
それは、言葉にできないほどのこと。。。
だけど、日本中の世界中の人達が常に寄り添っていることを忘れないでほしいのです。
どうか、どうか、あなたのその尊い命を大切にしてください。

Good Menu ~おつかれさまの金曜日に~

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback


たまーにですが、夫や、夫の友達と一緒に飲みに行きます。
女性好みのヘルシーメニューがある居酒屋から、オジサン向き?の飲み屋までいろいろ


Today is Friday!
So, many businessmen are going to the drinking party maybe.
I sometimes enjoy drinking and eating with my husband and friends at
Izakaya restaurant.
And I think the menu became healthier food than before.

For example, from the other Friday night.

This is the boiled Shijimi and Nanohana.

オルニチンパワーいただき~大きなしじみと菜の花のお浸し。

This is the fresh konnyaku.

プルプルのお刺身こんにゃく~いつでも大好き。


By the way, do you know what is this one?

ブタさんの耳です。初体験でした
It's the food of pig's ear.
I ate it for the first time at another small bar with my husband.
I was very surprised.
Um...it was soft and the taste was simple. Oh…
Yeah, it's important to try anything, isn't it?


今夜はお家ご飯ですが、メニューはお酒のおつまみ系が多いなぁ。。。
ブタさんの耳はないけど、鶏さんの手?があります。手羽先を塩こうじ漬けしたのを
グリルする予定~手羽もホントいうとちょっと苦手。でもコラーゲンたっぷりですから!
なんでも考え過ぎると食べられなくなりますね。。。有り難く頂きましょう♪
あぁ、お腹すいてきた~早く帰ってこ~い!

Have a nice Friday night!!

Made in Fukushima ~福島の酒粕~

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback


仲良しの英会話の先生とお買いもの そして、出会った福島の酒粕

Thank you for coming to my blog.
The other day, I went shopping with my English teacher.
Actually,we had been looking for a product of pure sake lees paste
from Kanazawa at that time.
But we couldn't find the same product anyway.
However we met a product of pure sake lees paste from Fukushima
at the liquor counter in a department store.
To tell the truth, first,I was worried about the product from Fukushima
because I was scared at the influence of Fukushima nuclear power plant accident.
Besides, my English teacher wanted to bring it to her country Canada.
So I felt the responsibility,and hesitated to recommend it.
But, then we checked the website of the sake maker in Fukushima,
and we understood the products were safe.
And she told me she is really looking forward to sharing this product
with her family and letting them know where it was made.
I was very glad to hear that.

And she said “The sake maker’s English website is excellent!”
If you’d like to see it, click here.→http://english.daishichi.com/

And I have been enjoying cooking and eating it these days!


This is the sake lees product we bought.

この酒粕を使った
酒粕ディップとクリームチーズの粕漬けも、よろしかったらご覧くださいね

この日は、話題の塩こうじも探し回ってGet!! 思い出深いお買い物となったのでした

even if everything evolves in the world.

Well, at the anniversary event, some great communities and vegetable's
sommeliers got an award. Congratulations!
And I learned many things from the speech about their experiences.
It was a wonderful event!!

It was nice and warm today, so we went to Shonan area by car.
Spring beach was calm and shining!
And we ate five kinds of curries for lunch at an Indian food restaurant.
Then we went to our favorite variety shop and bought a painting.
I really like it!
Next we went to a grocery store for shopping.
And I made some food for dinner and enjoyed eating and drinking as usual!

穏やかな春の海がキラキラまぶしかった~


鎌倉材木座にあるインド料理屋さん”あっぷがーる”葉山にあった時の方が好きだな。。。
でも、お味は以前と変わらずGood!


葉山御用邸前のバス停。ちょっとイイ感じ。


輸入雑貨屋さん”GRANT"から見る海もいつも好き。今日は絵を購入!

今日は、岩盤浴に行きました。汗をたくさんかいて気持ちよかった~

Hi, welcome to my blog, and thanks for coming!

Today, I went to bedrock sweat bath(Ganbanyoku).
And I felt relaxed, warmed from my body's core and sweated a lot.
The waste matter went out and my metabolism was helped maybe.
It was so comfortable.

By the way, tomorrow is the Doll's Festival,isn't it?
There were so many Hinamatsuri sweets at the basement of
department store(Depachika).
I bought Sakuramochi and Yomogimochi, and ate with my family.

デパ地下に並ぶひな祭り用のスイーツの中から選んだのは、たねやの桜餅とよもぎ餅。
桜餅のあんもさくら色で上品な甘さ、よもぎ餅にはきな粉をかけて頂きました

今日の英会話レッスンは、ディクテーションがメインでした。
ディクテーションは、リスニングしながら空欄に言葉を埋めていくレッスンです。
ストーリーは、インターネットビジネスで成功した5人について。
とても難しかったけれど、オモシロカッタ

Hello, thank you for visiting my blog.
I learned about five people who achieved business success with the Internet
in English lesson today.
Do you know Michelle Peluso, Jeff Bezos, Meg Whitman, Larry Page and Sergey Brin?
Their companies are Travelocity, Amazon, eBay or Google.
And I tried dictation about their success stories.
It was difficult for me, but so interesting!
And I knew the necessary things for success are charisma, education, integrity,
intelligence, luck, money, motivation, optimism, perseverance, risk taking,
self-discipline and talent.
And I like Jeff Bezos's company's slogan,"Work hard. Have fun. Make history."
His company is Amazon.
