its getting muggy here and the rainy season if you ask me has started.luckily the sun came out for a little while this afternoon to make the rainbows dance off the crystal in the kitchen. hana woke up this morning grinding her top to bottom teeth.seems like they popped out a fair bit overnight.thankgoodness i went to bed at 7pm last night so i could deal with the high demands of a teething 9mth old princess.the day got better.
in the time i spent preparing this japanese vegetable for cooking hana kept herself entertained with the tape measure magnet.100centimeters out 100 centimeters in. the vegetable is called fuki or butterbur. it has to be peeled and to be peeled it has to be boiled and then it has to be simmered in stock and then cooled and eaten (the next day).tomorrow we will eat today.
