A Day of Disappointment - Yomogi Udon -


Yomogi (Japanese mugwort) udon

Today was my first complete day off since January 3rd. I thought about cooking or baking something, but ended up just goofing off. Yes, again. Forgive me, almost everything I had today was “just-heat-it-up-and-eat” stuff.


This yomogi (Japanese mugwort) udon caught my eyes when I was aimlessly wandering around in the supermarket. Its green color looked so healthy. But when I tried it in “instant” soup, it was nothing but just disappointing…there was almost no yomogi flavor at all. The egg was good, though.

After the dinner, I had hot ginger drink which was also an “instant mix.”

Instant Shouga-yu (Hot Ginger Drink)

It tasted good. (I mean, how can you fail when all you have to do is just add certain amount of boiling water?) I guess I’m going to eat some tangerine oranges to take VC and go to bed early tonight. I was up until 4:30am this morning, so my energy level was rather low all day…. Night-night!

Hi obachan,

Get some rest OK? You don't want to be coming down with a cold. I'm sorry that the yomogi udon wasn't so nice.

Thanks, I did. I slept in this morning, and feeling all better, went for another experiment. ;)

Hi fish fish,
I was watching a rented video, and just couldn’t go to sleep after the video was over. I LOVE green tea soba, but don’t worry about my omiyage too much. :) Have a good rest…especially rest your stomach.
