I just have to make sure my son doesn't get a hold of it! Ahhhhh he's going to kill me when he's 15! ;)
My Grammy and I headed to Miso Market in Cambridge to shop for some Japanese groceries. I usually shop in Medford, but decided to try out Miso Market so she can get a driving tour of Boston on the way. I'm so glad we were able to get some goodies to munch on and make somen with. My Grammy usually sends me goodies from Uwajimaya in Seattle in her care packages. I really wish there was an asian market like that here in Boston! If anyone from elementary and middle school is reading this I'm sure those rice candies look familiar. I used to eat those everyday!
My son spotted these Thomas Pocky's so you know we had to get one for him :)
It made my Grammy so happy to see him enjoying his somen! With somen, you pour the broth in a bowl, add your noodles, and extras you want. We added ginger, lime, mandarin oranges, and green onions. My son was eating green onions on its own. Ummm...where did he come from? Haha! He loved being in control of what was in his bowl!
I think I'm going to post the somen recipe later. It's such a delicious lunch or dinner for the summertime.
I am so bummed this is my last week on vacation from work, and more importantly my last week of my Grammy's visit. Damian and I are join got be so sad when she leaves. He has been her shadow since day 1!
How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun?
