My Accomplishments

Hello! It is sunny again but we have high 95F (35C)!!!
It is better to go to work and cool off. Ha-ha!
We expect no rain for a week or so, which is good.

Today I will list my accomplishments as usual.

On 8/4, I won the special prize at Kadoya's sesame oil contest organized by Cookpad. They asked for creative recipes using their sesame oil. I made "Glittering Chinese Sauce Marinated Chicken Fillet". Don't you think these chopped bell peppers are glittering?!

Then on 8/4, I again got the honorable mention at is the site to search & learn & evaluate about many different kinds of salt(mainly in Japan). This time, they asked for cold soup recipes using salt. My piece was "Easy Cold Tomato Soup". It is easy because I used tomato juice to make this ;)

On 8/7, I won the outstanding performance award at "sushi project" by iCommons Summit'08 in Sapporo. They put out a call for sushi recipes and designs from around the world, so that they can promote Japan's "sushi culture" to a new level, not just as part of Japanese culture but as a "world culture".
My prizewinning recipe is "Tomato Cup Sushi". I stuffed sushi rice and tuna salad in tomatoes. Those are juicy and easy to eat. The sweet and sour flavor of sushi vinegar matches perfectly to the tuna salad! You gotta try ;)
Regarding the sushi project, I was interviewed by Hana TV last Friday. It was broadcast on August 6th, only in Hokkaido, so I couldn't see. They said they gonna send me a DVD, so I'm looking forward to receiving it.

Now I am watching the opening ceremony of Beijing Olympics!
I gotta stop now!

Have a nice weekend :)
