The karaage that Mariko makes is always oishii, but tonight we had fresh lettuce leaves too! It was a really nice complement to the savory chicken. It reminded me of eating Korean barbecue with the lettuce leaves. 💗

I hope you had a nice day!

Tonight we celebrated Koa’s birthday with a third birthday dinner! The first one was last weekend at the Brazilian Steakhouse, the second one was a dinner Koa spent with his friend, and tonight was one of his favorite home-cooked meals, から揚げ Japanese fried chicken. We actually have this quite often because everyone loves it, but I was really looking forward to it. 😄

And we also enjoyed a delicious homemade birthday cake! Mariko’s cakes are way better than most you buy here in the States… her cakes are less-sugary, and made with fresh, natural ingredients. I don’t have a sweet tooth, but her desserts are superb!

As the kids have grown bigger, so has the mountain of karaage (から揚げ) that Mariko prepares. 😆
