I have a healthy interesting recipe you can try!  My son and I were listening together to Japanese Pod 101 and they told about this recipe and my son was like “Let’s try it!  Mom!”

You need:


Jyagariko.  Do they sell these in other countries?  They are stick shaped potato chips.  Delicious.



Put hot water in the cup and close the lid.  Wait three minutes.  What do you think will happen?

















Mashed Potatoes!  Yum!  Great!  Terrific!  Wonderful!  They actually taste pretty good, but I don’t know….I felt like there was a teeny tiny aftertaste?  Perhaps I was imagining it.


Anyway, that’s what we have been up to.  We are having a nice family meal this weekend.  Thanksgiving in Japan just is not the same!
