Grow My Own Way! ~私自身のやり方で~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

昨日は、とある試験の日でした。
準備に時間がかけられなくて不安でしたが、結構楽しめました♪

Hello, how is it going?
Finally, I'm having a rest today.
I took a lecture and test yesterday.
In the lecture and test, I had to do a presentation.
I was interested in the other student's presentations
and I also enjoyed explaining my own idea though I didn't have a confidence.
I don't know about the result of examination yet, but I feel relief now.

Ah, I like this phrase the teacher said in the lecture.
" Grow my own way!"
Yeah, I think it's a really important thing.

By the way, they are avocado's seeds in my house.
I call them " Avocado Three brothers"!
I'm going to move them into planter soon.


水栽培中の我家のアボカド三兄弟!
芽が出たので、そろそろプランターにお引っ越しです(^^)

Busy Days ~多忙な日々~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

今月も残り一週間を切りましたね。。。
5月は予定が沢山あり、やるべき事、やりたい事が山積みで、
おまけに、家族も激しく多忙なため、ちょっと目が回っています~

Good morning, How are you?
Wow,We have only one week for the rest of May, don't we?!
Ah, time flies always!
Especially I feel so because I have many things what I have to do and want to do this month.
And my family are also very busy, they usually come home late night.
Besides,they went out for a work or hobby already before 6am this morning.
Well, my husband and I are going to finish the work for our residents' association
this month at last.
So we are going to have a party with neighbors tomorrow.
I think it was a precious chance to meet wonderful friends through the activity for neighborhood.
Yeah, we did a good job! maybe~

ところで、先日の英会話レッスンの時に、
will と be going to の使い方について教えて頂きました。
willは、プランがない時に使用、be going toは、既にその予定がある時に使用するのが正しく、
質問する時には、be going toを使用するのがナチュラルな表現だそうです。

What are you going to do this weekend?  のように。。。


Have a nice weekend!!

昨日は、雲の切れ間から見えた金環日食に感動しました。
そして、二か月振りのEnglish Cooking Lunchでした!
今回は、酒粕料理を楽しみました~♪

Hi, thanks for coming to my blog.

Did you see annular eclipse yesterday morning?
I was very impressed with the ring of the sun!
We were lucky, right?

And I had an English cooking lunch with my English teacher and my friend yesterday.
This time, we made some dishes with sake lees.
All dishes were so delicious and we had a wonderful time!
So, today, I'd like to show you these pictures of the English cooking lunch.
I hope you enjoy seeing them.

Colorful!

I got this sake lees made in Vancouver.

そして、カナディアンの先生からバンクーバーの酒メーカーの酒粕をお土産に頂きました。
今回の酒粕&チーズと豆腐のメニューは、先生がこの酒粕を使って作ってきてくれたものでした。
酒粕ホイップは、なかなか日本人が思いつかない発想ですよね。
オレンジとシナモンとクローブの香りが効いていてフルーツにピッタリ!
とーっても美味しかったので、私も色々チャレンジしてみようと思います。
ところで、このバンクーバーの酒メーカーのオーナーは日本人なんですよ。
現地で、お酒用の米作りからしていらっしゃるようです。

今日は、熊本から遊びに来た友人と一緒に、中華街や山下公園観光を楽しみました♪

Hi, thank you for coming to my blog.
Today, one of my friends came to Yokohama from Kumamoto,
and I took her to China town and enjoyed eating and shopping together.
It was really fun, and we had a wonderful time.
And fortunately we were not caught in a rain though it was changeable weather.
It must be a good luck our daily good actions brought!?


Ycatで待ち合わせして、まずは、シーバスで山下公園へ。

私もシーバスに乗るのは久しぶりでした♪

氷川丸と薔薇

噴水の向こうにランドマークタワー

萬珍樓でランチ。燕の巣のスープは二人で半分コ。

中華街をくまなく散策!いっぱいお買いものしたね~

横浜SOGOでお茶しながら、ひとしきりオシャベリした後、
こちらに出張中の友達の旦那様にバトンタッチ。

不安定な天気だったのに、幸運にも一度も雨にあうことなく、
これって、私達の日頃の行いが良いからよね~と大満足の一日でした♪ 
感謝!

Relaxed Time ~くつろぎの時~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

最近、食べている時が一番楽しくて、くつろぐな~

Hi, How have you been?
Actually I've been very busy, especially this week!
So my small brain is full of many things.
Ah...

But, I've been doing my regular housework every day of course,
not least cooking is important because my family and I like eating.

And I got a package from my parents yesterday.

There was a big watermelon in the package!
I really like watermelon, so I felt happy.
And, in the package, there was a present for my son from my father too.
It was a humorous handmade money box.
My son was very glad to get it.
Thank you my dad and mom always, my tiredness relaxed!


昨日、熊本の両親から届いた今年初めてのスイカ!
重さ7.5キロ、糖度14度だそうです。スイカ大好き~嬉しい~♪

宅急便の中には、他にも色々入っていたのですが、息子宛てに、
父手作りの貯金箱ならぬ貯金樽も入っていました(笑)

味噌樽を再利用したものですが、回りに十二支が彫ってあって凝ってる。。。
息子も大ウケでした(^_^) 中身のお味噌も美味しいデス♪

楽しくて美味しい宅配便に、家族全員疲れも吹き飛びました~
いつもありがとう。

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

お手製塩こうじに、醤油こうじ・・・我家も麹ブーム。

Hi, thank you for coming to my blog.
As you know Koji is the raw material for ferment food
such as sake, miso, soy sauce and vinegar in Japan.
And Koji is made from rice, soy bean or barley.
Recently salt-koji is getting more and more popular in Japan.
I made it of course!
And now my boom is soy sauce-koji.
It's also delicious and healthy!!


I cooked this side dish with handmade soy sauce-koji.

鶏肉と長ネギとアスパラガスの炒め物。
使った調味料は、酒とお手製の醤油こうじだけですが、ほのかに甘味があって美味!

よろしかったら、こちらもご覧くださいね⇒醤油こうじ

Storm ~突然の嵐~

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback

今日は、横浜でも突然、ものすごい嵐が吹き荒れました。
丁度、英会話レッスンを受けている時でした。。。

It was terrible weather today in Yokohama.
I was learning English at a school at that time,
and we saw outside from the window,
it got dark in a moment and stormed very hard.
Oh,my God! I was worried about laundries in my balcony.

After the English lesson I saw the groundwater overflowed at Yokohama station.
I heard it was hail!

But I was relief when I came home because my laundreis were not wet.

洗濯物は無事でした~ヨカッタ(~_~)


By the way, I learned how to use the word "set" at today's lesson.
I knew "set" is a very useful word and natural word.
I really enjoyed the lesson!

今日は、動詞のsetの使い方も学びました。
そう言えば、setは、日本語でもよく使いますよね。
例えば、時計のタイマーをセットする、とか、テーブルに食器をセットするとか・・
オックスフォード英語辞典には、setの定義が62コもあるそうです。Wow!!

How are you? ~ご機嫌いかが?~

Posted by mittanr on   0 comments   0 trackback

最近の天候不順・・自然の脅威・・機嫌が悪い地球・・・
あなたは元気でいてね。

Hi, thank you for coming to my blog.
How are you?
Well, I took my husband to a hospital yesterday and today
because he had to take some health examinations.
But he went to work from afternoon both days.
I'm worried about he has been very busy, but he looks fine and active every day.
I want him to keep his good health.
By the way, the weather has not been steady these days,
and the natural phenomena give a menace to us.
I was so sorry for the sufferer and I'm afraid of tornado and thunder.
Um,I feel as if the earth has been angry.
On the other hand, the natural world gives a healing to us.
I think if we notice the beautiful world it makes us happy.
Anyway,I wish the earth to be in a good mood always.
And I want to be with a bright smile always!

昨日、今日と、夫の半年に一度の検査のため、朝早く車で病院に送りながら、
道中、改めて今の幸せに感謝しました。
人を脅かすものは、病気だけでなく、自然災害など色々あるけれど、
できることなら、どんな状況の中にあっても、心の余裕は失いたくない。
いつも機嫌良くしていよう~!私は常にそんな風に思って暮らしています。
あ、でも、雷は大大大の苦手。子供の頃は、ホントにおへそを取られると思ってましたから~

GW明けの月曜日!主婦の私も朝からバタバタ大忙し~
でも、美容院のある元町は、混雑もなく、ま~ったりしてました~~イイ~!

Hello, thanks for coming to my blog.
How was your Monday after GW holidays?
I was busy as a housewife from early morning.
And I went to my favorite hair salon in Motomachi to cut my hair today.
I have used the salon from ten years ago.
So the hairstylist knows my hair well. That's very good for me.
And I had lunch at a nice cafe and bought some food at the shop.
Motomachi street was not crowded today.
I had a peaceful time this afternoon there.
It's important to have both busy time and relaxed time, isn't it?
Have a nice week!

MOTOMACHI union cafe

美容院の後に元町ユニオンカフェで一人ランチ。
2Fの窓から通りを眺めながら・・暫しのんびり~。海老とアボカドのサンドウィッチ美味!
元町商店街は月曜休みのお店が多いから、散策目的なら月曜日は狙い目ですね♪

ゴールデンウィーク最終日。私達はアウトレットモールにショッピングに出掛けました♪

Today was the last golden week holiday, right?
How was your holiday?
I went to an outlet mall with my husband after he finished a work this afternoon.
We enjoyed shopping, walking and eating.
And the yacht harbor near the shopping mall reminded us of our first meeting.
We met at a yacht club of company and he has the license for yachts.
Ah, we would like to sail together someday!

今日は、祝日なのに夫も息子もお仕事~
とーっても良い天気だったのに可哀そうな二人です。
私はというと。。。

Hi, how are you doing?
My family are very busy,so they had to go to work today.
I was sorry for them because today's weather was beautiful.
And, about my day, I went to swimming, and swam 500m in the pool,
enjoyed the mist sauna and bubble bath this morning.
I was very refreshed!
After that I went to grocery shopping , and bought kashiwamochi
and calamus leaves for Children's day.
Kashiwamochi is a rice cake wrapped in an oak leaf
with sweet adzuki beans inside as you know.
I love it!

。。久しぶりに、プールで泳ぎました♪

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback

Hello, how are you?
I'm pretty good!

昨日から夫の母が一泊で遊びに来ていました。嫁ガンバリました~(笑)

My mother-in-law came to our home yesterday,and stayed overnight.
She can barely walk,but she needs a wheelchair outdoors.
I wondered if she would be able to come here again.
But, this time, I felt very happy, because we had a wonderful time
and I thought she must be a really happy old lady.

Dinner I made last night

Hand Made Buckwheat Noodles ~お家で手打ち蕎麦~

Posted by mittanr on   6 comments   0 trackback

以前から、手打ちそばを作ってみたいと言っていた夫。。。
お友達が、『家庭の道具でできるそば打ち』というDVDを貸してくれたので、
先日、初トライしました

Hi, how was your day?
I hope you have been enjoying your holidays.
Actually my husband and son have been very busy these days,
besides they can't have long GW holidays.
But, they seem healthy and happy, so I feel really happy.
The other day, my husband and I tried making hand made buckwheat noodles for the first time.
It was difficult for us.
However we enjoyed kneading dough by hands and stretching it by a rolling pin,
of course eating them too!
The shape was not good, but the taste was good.
It was really fun!

Buckwheat flour

10割そば粉を購入! 

He flattened dough by the small rolling pin.

エプロンをしてガンバル夫。 麺棒がちっちゃい(-_-;)

Wow! He looks like a buckwheat expert.

クルクルクル~ 楽しそうです(~_~)

Good job!

おぉ! お蕎麦に見えます!!

Soba dinner
soba1.jpg
ちょっと、麺が太かったね~(^_^;) でも、お蕎麦の風味抜群でおいしかったョ。
こごみ、さつまいも、ごぼう、なす、エリンギのてんぷらと、山芋のとろろも添えて♪

Yeah, we will make hand made buckwheat again.^^
