[Monday 21st August]
After Chie's weekend long training marathon, today she had a day off. This was nice as it meant she could come to the part of Tokyo where I work and we could have lunch together.
After I finished work we met up again at the supermarket next to our nearest station. Initially we were both at a complete loss for what to have for dinner, until eventually one or the other of us came up with the idea of gyoza.
Standard gyoza in Japan typically contain some kind of meat. So when we make them at home, we have a somewhat adapted recipe with a filling involving okara (a by-product of the tofu production process), nira (a kind of Japanese/Chinese leek or chive) and usually some kind of Japanese mushroom. This seems to work rather well actually - although I've never had the "real thing" to compare, they certainly taste good to me at least.
