In aomori, Moni and I found these pumpkin kitkat! But they are like real squash.... Kinda savory. Interesting.
Finished my headboard. Nana should've proud!
Moni invited me to a conversational dinner at the international center.
The next day, nic and I went to the shimoda mall. She ALWAYS wants to go to the pet store and we ALWAYS see a schnauzer being groomed! This one is very interesting...
And then we had to have pepper lunch for dinner! I tried this ham and cheese skillet, it was awesome!
In the morning I had my cooking class come over. This is a sign that there are a bunch of japanese women at my house!
But we made quite a spread! French onion soup, croutons, butternut squash soup with cranberry relish and pesto, croissant breadsticks, and 7 Apple pies!!! (And we ran out of time to make caramel apples!)
Saturday was a nice night of carb loading and celebrating. (Aren't these wine glasses cool? The constellations glow in the dark!)
We headed straight for mt. whichever.... Just hoping that 6.55 miles is not on the top of said mountain!!
Then I found Hiroko from my cooking class! We ran together for a little while til I needed to move on.... I mean, til she passed me!!!
Uh, apparently I can't run and chew gum, but I did c arch this cool tori gate in the middle of our run!
