It will be. Consider, for instance, Pearl Harbor, which also had a huge impact on U.S. history. Dec. 7 is probably still a sensitive day for many Americans, but I think it’s good to realize that history doesn’t stop the march of time. Happy events do still happen on otherwise sad days, and life goes… Continue reading To everyone who is like “SEPTEMBER 11?! That’s such a happy day” //end sarcasm//
With this, my blogging about school lunch comes to a sudden halt. My school lunch ended on a high note as I was able to eat the 6年生の楽しみ給食 (6th grader’s special lunch) that consisted of apple jelly, fried chicken, two hashed potato star thingies, two sweet breads, and all in all yummy things. I am… Continue reading This Month in 給食 – FINALE: March 2011
There, for those who think I am being naive and should be running for Okinawa or Kyushu right now, here is a map from the nuclear power plants to where I am located. Notice the nice big number up there with a 2 followed by some other numbers? I am well outside what even the… Continue reading Distance from Power Plant
This is rather late, but at least it is up now. I will try to get the March lunches up soon. Yes, I know that some lunches are shown twice, but between the 4 schools that I go two…repeats usually occur….which is disturbing considering that sometimes a lunch served one week shows up at another… Continue reading This Month in 給食: February 2011

While the concern is touching, my fellow expats in Japan and I are spending a lot of… Continue reading Earthquake/Tsunami/Radiation Update
Just in case you were concerned, I am perfectly safe here in Saitama Prefecture. I will post a blog update about all this later.
I really really wanted to get these. I have had good luck with the pink variety Kit Kats, and the wrapping on these were just so cute! There will soon be a new feature here at Tobidasu! Due to some changes in my health, nothing serious but some things that I should look out for,… Continue reading Strawberry Cake Kit Kat
No, I am not talking about some cheesy remake of the Irving Berlin song, but we literally had a white Valentine’s Day here in Japan this year. After finishing work, it started to rain a bit, but I managed to make it home before anything too crazy started. Then…. 6 pm rolled around and this… Continue reading I’m Dreaming of a White…Valentine’s Day?
Ug, I have been so busy with wedding plans, elementary school lessons, trying not to strangle the high school couple that makes out in my apartment complex’s parking lot every morning…to blog properly. So, this is a little late, but, here are the lunches for January. Recently, there has been an increase in school lunches… Continue reading This Month in 給食: January 2011
This is one of my favorite Japanese dishes, but I can never get the recipe right when I try to make it myself. There are a few places that have opened up in my neighborhood that sell them. Makes my bike ride to and from work smell fantastic! Not sure if these would be a… Continue reading Japanese Caramelized Sweet Potatoes
