squid dishes

Hakodate is famous for squid.
I've heard "Squid! Squid!" from a mobile store a few times before, but the number of squid has been decreasing here recently. I don't know whether or not they still go around to sell them even in the area near the sea.
In summer, some citizens enjoy "squid dancing" at the festival every year. I like it, but I can't dance it.

Yesterday, my friend's father went fishing for squid, and I got some of them. They were fresh.

When I cooked deep fried squid a long time ago, it was very dangerous because the hot oil splashed so often while I was cooking. So, I didn't like deep fried cooking them. However, I learned how to avoild splashing. Squid has a few skin layers (not only one!), so, I removed them carefully. Then, it was not dangerous. In case of splashing, I had a big cover for a pan with my left hand to protect myself while deep frying though. And of course, I made some fresh sliced squid. They were absolutely delicious!

I put the biggest squid gut into soysauce. I'll use it later for cooking.

実践ビジネス英語10/2018問題文


Chicago / Hard To Say I'm Sorry

The Writers’ Workshop 10月号問題文 「高齢化社会」の解説

Yuichiro Miura successfully reached the top of Mt. Everest at the age of eighty. He was the oldest climber in the world to pull it off. His remarkable achievement surely cheered up a lot of people.
Among the eighty-year-old people, some are disabled, and some challenge to climb mountains such as Mt. Everest. What is the difference between them? Is it mind, body, or luck? I stop thinking it for a long time because I won't find the answer, but Mr. Miura is certainly a fantastic man.
Since then, I began to see eighty-year-old people in a different way. Mr. Miura's great point is that he had gotten over obesity and arrhythmia before climbing. He had never been strong before.
It is difficult to find strong eighty-year-old people. They are apt to be lazy at home.
By the way, my mother has been given way at the elevator by a man. She thought what a gentleman, and saw him. He was that Mr. Miura.
After he came back from Mt. Everest, I was impressed with his words, "I'm afraid of not aging, but losing my aim."

Ikebana 10/3/2018

IMG_2572_convert_20181010000004.jpg

I composed this arrangement of Celastrus Orbiculatus (ツルウメモドキ), Gentian (竜胆、リンドウ), and Babyhands (木苺ベビーハンズ) on Oct. 3.


One of my family members is supposed to be able to choose a restaurant in the one's birthday month.
My birthday is in this month, so, I chose an eel restaurant. These days, eels are so expensive that I can't eat them so often. I usually buy one at a supermarket a few times a year. As for the eel restaurant, I went there for the first time in almost ten years.

I had thought that soup with eel gut always came with eel and rice because it used to do before. However, when we looked at the menu, it said that miso soup came with it at the restaurant. We ordered eel gut soup instead of miso one, so, we had to pay for it. We also ordered skewered eel fin for the first time. I was surprised that it was delicious, too.

I enjoyed eel very much. When can I go to an eel restaurant next time?

Ikebana 9/19/2018

I took a monthly Ikebana test on Sep. 9. These two works were arranged by the professor.

I composed this arrangement of Celastrus Orbiculatus (ツルウメモドキ), Gentian (リンドウ), and Babyhands (木苺ベビーハンズ) on Spt.19.


When my son will enter a high school, I'll have to make boxed lunch for him every morning. It's headache.
I want him to make it by himself every Friday at least. In case that he can't do this, I want him to buy it with his allowance. Also, I want him to wash his lunch box after school every day.

I've told my son about it a few times before. He didn't say anything. I thought he accepted it. If I have to go back to my hometown for a few weeks, I want my son to do everything by himself because my husband can't doesn't cook.

However, when I told my husband about it for the first time in front of my son recently, he said that it will be impossible because my son will not be able to get up early to make boxed lunch. My son soon agreed with him.
Why did my husband say so?

Autumn Stamps 2018

I bought a sheet of stamps for Greetings Autumn. These pictures are very beautiful. I wish I took beautiful photos like them. However, it's impossible for my camera. Mine is small and light to be able to be put in my bag always. Professional photographers always have big cameras. I like taking photos, but I don't want to carry big one.

Autumn has come here. I have started cleaning windows one by one every weekend. I want to finish them before winter comes although there are not so many.
