Fugu Chiri Nabe

Yesterday, I had "Fugu Chiri Nabe" (puffer fish hot pot dish) with my co-worker for lunch. Fugu (puffer fish) is an expensive type of fish. Usually served as a fine dining but this was only for $10!!! I always watch TV while running at the gym, and every Thursday, there is a show that features lunch menus at great prices! (The restaurants can cut prices because they use the portions that can't be served for dinner but still are high-grade!) Mostly, those featured restaurants aren't close to my workplace, but last week the one nearby was featured! I think I should better keep an eye on that program ;)

Changing my story, the peacock store near my house (I wrote about it before) is going to close down tomorrow. Everything was 30-50% off yesterday evening, and I found nothing left when I stopped by at night!!! How fast... and everyone knows the value.

You know what!? Sad thing here again. Yesterday I found that the boxing class (at the gym) I loved will end this month. The class was held on Sunday evenings and now I don't have a class to look forward... Inconveniently, all other interesting classes are held during the day. Is the gym for homemakers?

It is raining here today... but good weather to prevent flu outbreak!

Damn me... I just cooked once this week. Maybe next week, I will cook more!

Okay, I gotta go now.
See you next month ;)

    Love to eat post,four layers.

    I always wathced NHK here,even though i can't understand.
    Japanese channel is very informative.
    Nabe is use only for winter season?

  2. Hello Ochi,

    Your Fugu lunch looks delicious. I wish I could go eat lunch with you. Japanese food courses always look very nutritious. I know I would fit right in.

    I made sushi for my daughter and I the other night. I also made Japanese egg, eggs rolled like burittos. I think I told you my mom used to put asparagus in! So good!

    Looks like you are having store closings like us. I always arrive late too for the special discounts!
    Kick boxing sounds fun, too bad they had to eliminate the class. Nothing good seems to stay long!

  3. Hi merce-san,

    Yummy 4 layers ;)

    Nabe is mostly eaten in winter when it's cold, but we do eat it all season! For example, Korean style nabe (Kimchi nabe) we eat in summer, too.

  4. Ohayo jo,

    You know Japanese food, so I believe you can enjoy food here ;)
    Hope you can come someday!

    Asparagus sounds delicious! I remember your mother's piece!
    I want to eat that with soy sauce and mayonnaise!

    Yes! I went to the store late for the discounts, but everything was sold out after they discounted by 30%!!! When they took off half the price, there weren't anything I want but most people were buying on impulse! Crazy...

    I hope something good will happen the next!

  5. Konnichiwa Ochi san!
