With my beloved Canucks season-ending loss the other night I can sadly no longer list listening/watching hockey games to my things I love Thursday list - it'll be another 4 months before I can say that again too... sigh.
But, on the flip side, there are plenty of other things I'm loving this Thursday, like:
- home-made yoghurt! I was given a container by a coworker to start me off. I had some with dinner tonight and wow! It was amazing! I am looking forward to having yoghurt with fruit for breakfast, especially when the weather gets hot and muggy and I loose my appetite.
- dinner tonight - I found myself craving fajitas and while I ended up with something closer to open-faced quesadillas, it was YUMMY! Since I can't find toritillas on short notice, I started with a somewhat thinner version of la Fuji Mama's Tibetan Flatbread. Once this was done I topped it with grated cheese, and then ladled on the warm grilled chicken/onions/mushrooms (no peppers due to my allergies). The mixture had been flavoured with a few spoonfuls of the huge container of fajita seasoning I inherited from a friend leaving Japan. This was then topped with my coworker's home-made yoghurt. It was messy but oh so yummy!
- Genghis Khan - no, not the Mongolian warlord, but a Japanese dish mostly found in Hokkaido - grilled lamb, sometimes in a hotpot, sometimes just grilled on bbq grill. I love lamb and have the chance to eat it so rarely here in Japan. But tomorrow night a number of my coworkers and I are going out for Genghis Khan... yum!
All this yummy food is because of friends/coworkers, so I'm definitely loving my friends this Thursday too!
