Simmered Chicken in Grated Potato

Today, it was windy but clear and sunny!
Unfortunately, most of the cherry blossom flowers (not only the petals) were falling in the wind... It might have been the last chance to go to ohanami and take pictures!!!

Actually, I just came home. It is almost 0:00.
Tonight, after work, I went out to see cherry blossoms with my co-workers at Chidorigabuchi, where is famous for ohanami.
I was wondering whether I should go or not since I forgot to bring my camera (single-lens reflex camera) with me...
Also, I don't like to hang out after work...
However, the other co-worker let me borrow his camera so I went.

There were so many people that I couldn't really enjoy.
I hate the crowd!!!
Also, the camera I borrowed didn't work well.
I mean, the settings were complicated and I couldn't get used to...
Okay, enough!

Oh my god! There is too much to write!!!
Might write tomorrow.

Today, I will simply post the recipe that I translated at lunch break and go to bed.
It is one of my favorite dishes that my mother cooks!
