A little overdone because I didn’t wrap the foil tight enough. So I’m a little disappointed. But there was still plenty of tender brisket to satisfy the teenager.

As for the crust, I chopped it up and made breakfast tacos out of. So it’s all good!

Mariko made a batch of croissants today. She said she used very good butter and they tasted amazing! The inside had so many layers. I only had a couple bites of one because the rest are going to other people, but that’s fine because I already ate dinner and I am trying to be good! 😄

A Cold Beer

I’m trying not to have too much alcohol these days, but I’ve been eyeing this beer in the fridge for a week now and well, it’s time to drink it!

Mariko and her friend visited the Family Business brewery and were able to buy this can of “Cosmic Cowboy”. It’s so much better than the standard fare. Well worth the calories!


Healthy and Light Nabe Dinner

Tonight we enjoyed a simple, healthy nabe dinner. Last night’s meal left me feeling too full, so I was happy to eat lighter tonight.

Even though it was just tofu, greens, and daikon in broth, I felt very satisfied and my stomach also felt good. And I can say that my mindset was also more clear. In fact, I felt so energized that I wanted to go for a run. But since I already went for a long bicycle ride at lunchtime (and Wednesdays are kind of my running rest day) I decided to just take it easy this evening. 😊

I hope you had a nice day! またね~

Chicken Tikka Masala Dinner

Mariko made chicken tikka masala and naan for our dinner tonight. It was super yummy and I ate way too much. Actually, my portion wasn’t too large but I didn’t eat much all day today so my stomach shrunk a bit. That’s my guess.

After dinner I started on my usual 5 km run, but I felt so sluggish that I decided to cut it a bit shorter than usual. That’s okay though… I’m happy that I at least got out there. 😀

I hope you had a great day! またね~
