こんばんは。How’s it going?
I’m going to have to go on a serious diet soon if I keep on eating like I did today… 😃🍺
First off, we went to a farewell brunch for some friends who are moving to Brooklyn. The food was something that is common in Austin: build-your-own tacos with brisket, carnitas, homemade salsas, and fresh onion, cilantro, jalapeños, and tomatoes. In addition, cold local beer and yummy mimosas to wash it all down. It was pretty awesome. 🍴
Later that day, we hosted our 8th “Kaiju Nite”, in which we watch Japanese monster movies and enjoy even more delicious food. The menu included karaage (Japanese fried chicken), harumaki (egg rolls), shrimp toast, champuru (Okinawan dish of goya, spam, and egg), lotus root salad, green salad with sashimi, and various small snacks. Beverages included sake, wine, and beer. OMG I was so full! 😝
My aunt often ends her greeting cards with, “Eat well” and I intend to uphold that request. 😃
I hope you had a nice weekend!
