[Thursday 31st August]
According to wikipedia:
La ratatouille peut être mangée immédiatement mais elle est bien meilleure après une nuit.
I couldn't agree more. Today for dinner we had an assortment of leftovers including the remaining stew from Monday, and the remaining ratatouille from Wednesday. Both tasted better for having matured a bit in the fridge. Oh and we also had some corn-on-the-cob, another major feature in our most recent food parcel from Nagano.
Culinary matters aside, I had a long phone conversation with my Dad this evening about plans for the future. I hadn't spoke to him in a while and so there was quite a lot of news to tell, and it was really great to catch up.
The rest of the evening was pretty uneventful really.
Looks like you have both been keeping busy this summer with weekend getaways to break up the scenery. Thanks for sharing pictures!
My husband and I just finished a small student apartment in our basement. Had a successful garage sale to get rid of some of the junk that has accumulated and this weekend is a long weekend for us (Monday is a holiday, Labor Day) which will consist mostly of laying around, resting and perhaps cleaning up my office (scary mess in there).
I hope that everything is coming together for your future and pointing you in whatever direction you hope as you start a new chapter in your life I'm sure.
Wishing you and Chie all the best!

I really can't wait to hear the news!!!! I hope that I don't have to work on Sunday so maybe we can hook up in the evening... :)

My latest recipe for c-o-t-c. Slice up fresh corn on the cob and dose with equal tablespoons of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey and cook in oven for 40 mins. As you haven;t got an oven, try less than 10 mins (possibly only 5) in microwave. Cover, as it splashes a bit.
