Cold Noodle

It becomes hot day by day here. We like to eat cold cuisine during the summer. 
One of famous food in summer is cold Chinese noodle. ( 冷やし中華 hiyashichuuka ).
I often cook it at home.

I cooked this noodle today. I added cucumber, sesame, ham and tomatoes. The vegetables are from my  garden  The other basic ingredient is fried thin eggs on the noodle.
The soup tastes a bit sour. When summer arrives, Japanese people want to eat this noodel.

My Daughter’s Cooking

There is a cooking class in an elementary school. My oldest daughter, 10 years old, learns how to cook basic dish. 
She wants to try the skill at home.

Eel Restaurant

My family and I visited this Eel( in Japanese, Unagi ) restaurant last weekend.

This is a menu. Recently, the price of an eel is expensive because we can’t get many eels. We import many eels from China. (I’m not sure where this eel grew.)

This is a lunch menu. The price is more reasonable.
