Monday - Hot and Sunny

A good day.

I got up around 9 this morning and had a relaxing time watching my show, drinking tea and just vegging!  After it was over I made the bed and then worked out a little.  I had a good workout today.  

I took my shower in the early afternoon and had lunch too.  F had made bread overnight and it was good.  He put some shiso in the bread and when I toasted it, the shiso was lovely.  This was one experiment that worked! 

I worked a bit on my Journal article today. I wrote a bit, but I also did some research on it too.  Yay me.

I cooked dinner for us tonight.  We had the leftover nama pasta and sauce, plus bacon and salad.  We’d only been able to get shredded cabbage last night, so I grated one of the carrots and added that to the salad.  It was good.  Dinner was much nicer than I expected.

F did the dishes and we settled in for a nice night.  I noticed that The Italian Job was on NHK tonight, so I watched that.  F watched it for a bit too.  It was the remake with Jason Statham.  I had seen it before, but it was before I really knew who Jason was!  Plus, he had hair back then.   It was fun.  I did some crochet during it and even finished up all of my brown squares.  Yay me.  I just have to finish darning in their ends now.  Boo!

I managed to wake F up to go and have a bath and now we’ve been sitting up on our mutual computers chatting a bit and getting ready for going to bed.  I’m not sure what I’m going to get up to, but I’m inviting you to come back and find out.  Until tomorrow….

I would never have thought to put shiso in bread. Rosemary and other italian-y herbs, yes, but shiso? Now I'm curious. Was it dried beforehand?

I guess Japanese put mugwort (yomogi?) in bread, too, so maybe shiso is not so out there.

Yes, it was dried. It was also the red kind. We got it at a farmer's market. It wasn't so noticeable before toasting, but something about the toasting really brought out the flavour. It was really nice. (I love shiso!)

Hmm...I've had yomogi (?) tea, but not bread. That's a good idea!

Thanks for visiting.
