Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback

昨日は、キッコーマン㈱主催の郷土料理講習会に参加しました。
震災以降、とても気になっていた東北の郷土料理・・・その一部を教えて頂きました。

Good morning, how are you?
Thank you for coming to my blog today too.

Well, I took a cooking lecture of tohoku local dishes yesterday.
Actually I've been interested in local food especially of tohoku area in Japan
after the great earthquake.

And I learned four kinds local dishes and the wisdom of cooking of people in tohoku area.
They have been making food by useing ingredients in excellent preservation and
seasonal vegetables well.
I'll try making these dishes and I'd like to know tohoke local food more!


写真上から左回りに:
にしんと筍とふきの煮物(岩手県) 乾燥ではなく、干したソフトにしんを使いました。
                      脂がのっていてとても美味! 春らしい一品。
茄子のだし(福島県) この「だし」はお漬物のような郷土料理のこと。山形のだしが有名。
はっと汁(宮城県)  すいとんに似ています。
              料理名は、あまりに美味しくてご法度という意味からきたという説も。
ずんだ餅(宮城県)  意外に簡単!枝豆の色がキレイ。

こんにちは。いつもご訪問いただきありがとうございます♪
昨日は、お友達に手打ちパスタを教えてもらいました!

Hi, thanks for coming to my blog. As always I appreciate your visit.
Yesterday, one of my friends and I enjoyed cooking and eating lunch together.
And I learned hand-made pasta from her.
It was so fun, not difficult and really delicious!

And, I've been interested in making pork ham these days,
so I brought the hand-made ham to her home for lunch.
It was also delicious! She and I really liked them.

And her birthday and my birthday are same month! Yeah, this month!!
We also drank wine and ate cake to our birthday.
It was so happy!


I wrote about the cooking lunch on another blog,
so please look at the pictures of hand-made pasta in the article if you want to know the detail.

今日は、上野の東京国立博物館で開催中の 
”ボストン美術館 日本美術の至宝”を観に行きました

Hello, Thank you for coming to my blog.
What are you doing on weekend?

Today I went to Tokyo National Museum in Ueno park with my husband
because we wanted to see the Boston museum's exhibition.
And we enjoyed seeing Japanese great treasures that Boston museum has been holding.
Those arts were so wonderful and I was impressed with the passion of collectors.
Amazing collection!
It was so interesting, so we took over two hours.

And, do you know this year is the 140th anniversary to Tokyo national museum ?
When we went in the main building we felt the long history of Japanese culture.

After that, we enjoyed walking around Ueno park.
We had a good time!!



ボストン美術館が保有する国宝級の日本美術の数々、見応えありましたよ~。
フェノロサやビゲローのような収集家の存在とその情熱にも魅せられました。


日本で最も長い歴史を持つ東京国立博物館は、今年140周年!
重厚な雰囲気の本館の中に入ると、その歴史の長さを感じます。


おなじみの西郷さん! 新緑もキレイで公園内のお散歩も楽しめました♪

Have a nice weekend

Movie in Yokohama ~映画はいつもヨコハマで~

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback

昨日、やっと、映画『マーガレット・サッチャー 鉄の女の涙』を観に行きました
メリル・ストリープ 素晴らしかったです!

I went to see a movie Yesterday.
And I usually enjoy seeing movie at the same theater in Yokohama.
Because it's my favorite place.
Well, I saw the movie " THE IRON LADY "yesterday.
As you know, this movie is the true story and describes Margaret Thatcher's life.
And the main character is Meryl Streep.
She is my favorite actress, and her performance was perfect.
Yeah, it was a wonderful movie!

To be, or not to be, that is the question  ~ハムレットより~

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback


ある英会話レッスンでのこと。
テキスト2Bを開いた時に、イギリス人の先生が、いきなり言ったフレーズ。
”To be, or not to be, that is the question."
先生は、テキストNOの 2Bに to be を掛けて言ったのだけど、
私は、その時は、それがハムレットの中の有名な台詞とは分からず、
キョトンとしてしまいました(笑)

Do you know that phrase?
It's the famous part in Hamlet of Shakespeare,isn't it?
But I confused, because my English teacher said the phrase when I opened the textbook 2B.
That's interesting,right?
Yeah, It was funny!

By the way, Hamlet is one of the four tragedies written by Shakespeare.
Do you know the title of other tragedies?
Othello, King Lear and Macbeth.

ところで、『ハムレット』は、シェークスピアの四大悲劇の一つ・・・
残りの三つは、『オセロ』 『リア王』 『マクベス』

因みに、"To be, or not to be,,," の台詞の訳は、色々あるようですが、
私は、「このままでよいのか、いけないのか、それが問題だ」と訳すのが好きです。

そんな場面は、私の生活のいたるところにありそうです。。。(-_-;)

この日のレッスンは、先生のジョークのお陰でオモシロイ展開となったのでした~

Yay!

たんぽぽを見るとユーミンの曲を思い出します。
素敵なテンプレートを見つけたので、変更しました~

I changed my blog's template because I found the nice one.
This template's title is "dandelion".
And the pictures on top are so nice, aren't they?
I like this!
And I remembered a song when I looked at dandelions.
The song is "ダンデライオン~遅咲きのたんぽぽ”by Yumi Matsutoya.
I really like this song, because the melody and lyrics are lovely.
Anyway, I'm writing my blog with nice feeling again!
Thank you.

前のテンプレートもとても気に入っていたのですが、
プラグイン部分の状態が元に戻せなかったので、変更することにしました。
どうぞヨロシクお願いします(^^)

なんだか、ブログのページがおかしい・・・

なので、この記事は、急ぎお試しで書いています。
元に戻るといいなぁ。。。

Good morning!
How are you?

I noticed my blog page is strange a little.

So I'm trying this article now.

Only for that.

But I attach this picture I took last Saturday.
I ate a fried big asparagus at a drink house with my friend.
It was so delicious!

でも、折角なので、先週土曜日に友人と串揚げ屋さんで食べた

The Root of Avocado ~アボカドの根!~

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback


やっと、水栽培中のアボカドの種から根っこが出てきました

Hi,Thank you for coming to my blog!
Well, do you remember the article I wrote about water culture of avocado?
Avocado Salad & Seed ~アボカドサラダとタネの行方~

At last, the root came out! It took about four weeks.
Plese look at this picture!!

ほら~真ん中がパカッと割れて根が出てきた~!(笑)

Actually, there are three water culture pots for avocado seeds in my home now.
The left one already has a long root.

実は、今、我家には三つもあります。。。(大笑)
一番左の黒くなっちゃっているのは、もうビロ~ンと根が伸びて、芽も出てきました。

As a matter of fact, my son did these things.
And these seeds will grow like this picture. Aha ha ha...

こんな風に成長する予定~
1メートルくらいに成長した株もあったのですが、冬に枯れて葉っぱが落ちてしまい、
青々としているのはコレだけです。アボカドも種類があるので、葉の形も微妙に違います。
この種はどんな風に成長するのかなぁ~鉢に植え替えたころにまたご報告しま~す(笑)

夫の兄姉は皆ビックリするくらい親孝行で仲良し!
私はラッキーなのね。。。きっと~

My mother-in-law lives with my husband's brother's family.
She looks very happy though she needs a wheelchair.
My sisters-in-law, my husband and I also go to her house
often, and go out together.
I think my husband's family has a good relationship, and
they have filial piety too.
Probably I'm a lucky woman.
And I notice we feel happy when family is happy.
We want to see families smile.
I think that's all.
喜ぶ笑顔が見たい・・それがすべて。
夫や夫の兄姉から私が学んだことはホントに大きいです。
でも、いつまでも、たよりない嫁~(笑)

離れて暮らす両親とは、ついつい長電話。。。

I usually call to my parents about ones a week.
My father and mother like talking.

今日は友達3人とランチ~知り合って一年くらい経つけれど、初ランチ


I went to Red brick warehouse in Yokohama for lunch with my friends today.
Eating lunch together was the first time for us though we met about one year ago.
There're some nice restaurants and shops in Red brick warehouse.
So we enjoyed window shopping after eating lunch.
And then we went to another restaurant and had sweets and tea, and enjoyed talking together of course.
We had a wonderful time and became good friends.

My Birthday on a Spring Storm ~春の嵐の誕生日~

Posted by mittanr on   6 comments   0 trackback


今日は、ものすごい春の嵐。。。


What a storm!
I'm very scared.
Are you all right?
Take care, I hope you are safe.

Actually, today is my birthday.
There're both feelings of old and young in my mind.
To tell the truth, my heart hasn't grown from twenties maybe.
I feel shame at my childish character.
But my body is getting older and older.
It can't be helped.
However I appreciate my happy life.
And I received many messages from my parents, sister, family
and friends today.
I was really happy! Thanks a lot!!
Yeah, I have to do my best and progress more.
And I'd like to make a great year for me.
