Today's Dinner

I try to eat more vegetables during summer time.
Today's dinner,  I cooked Yellow Squash Salad with tomato, Green Squash soup, and Curry of Pork, cucumber and egg plant.
The squash salad is very tasty with Sesame and Soy-source based salad dressing.
Brown rice with vegetable curry
 I used chicken broth for the soup.

Food Shopping at Mitsuwa

I went to the Okinawa and Kyushu Foods Fair at New Jersey Mitsuwa today and purchased
some Okinawan foods.

Okinawan-style black sugar crepe is my favorite snack.
Zenzai, Yuzu tea and orange dressing are very good.  
Koppa Mochi
Purple sweet potato tick rice cake
Produced in Amakusa, Kumamoto
I also bought a book titled
"Honba no Edo Go"
Language spoken by commoners in Edo period.
Edo Go is now spoken in Kabuki theater.
I will travel to California next weekend to join intensive dance training and
will report my trip later.

Sunday Excercise

I had a summer cold last week and couldn't do exercise.
Today, I enjoyed my Sunday exercise at a gym of the club house of my condominium. I usually use the gym room Sunday afternoon which many people who live here do not use the gym after 5 pm of Sunday.

Hi, I hope you will have a wonderful July 4th weekend!
