The seasons are changing, it's starting to get hot and humid.
Elizabeth Andoh's Washoku (JP, US) looking for more seasonal recipes. Every time I read this I find a new technique. It's almost like an autobiography too, she includes a lot of anecdotes of her life as a rural foreign wife before we were everywhere.
My daughter got her first magazine from kindergarten and she is so excited. Now I know why so many moms do those elaborate bento lunches, these magazines show them to kids like they are normal. Why oh why?!
My son got a postcard, the first postcard he's ever received in English, from a member of Ms. Mac's class. Tiana wrote him a poem for the poem postcard project, all the way from the USA! He was so thrilled, he sounded it all out himself and would not give it up so I could stick it on the fridge. It's in his hand while he's asleep. :) Way to make his week, Ms. Mac, thank you!
What are you reading this week?
