Tokoroten --- Cold Pasta Like Noodle Dessert


Tokoroten --- This is something you would have between lunch and dinner.... you could call it dessert...,but this is not sweet.

The pasta like clear noodle is made of sort of seaweeds....cooked and melted.  Chill it before serving.  Usually it comes in a package and they have sauce... the combination of soy sauce and vinegar.

I sprinkled powdered green laver on the top.  

It is supposed to be full of dietary fiber, so good for your intestines and resolve your constipation !
( Fortunately I don't have constipation. )  Good to remove cholesterol, good for weight loss ( because the dietary fiber and full of water  makes you feel full ) etc.etc....  

Traditional Japanese sweet shops like Japanese cafe has this " Tokoroten".  Tastes good ?
Yes, I feel it tastes good.   I would call it Summer food.

SATC --- Our Opinion

So, I saw " Sex And The City " with girl friends.  There was another group of girl friends who went to see the movie the next day.  It seems this title is quite popular and talked about much !

Samantha , I love her sense of humour.  The Sushi scene, I laughed too much and my stomach started aching.   The scene from Mexico's hotel..... The national forest conversation.... That also killed me. 

Miranda and her husband's relationship.... it was moving.  My friends said the same thing.... after the therapy, they try to meet up again...... That scene was touching and made us feel this sort of thing happens in our life also.  

Their life style overall..... very special.  Although many of my friends are well educated , professional, still not everybody has that kind of life style.  

What attracts us so much ?  Probably men do not understand.  Their friendship.... is quite tight.
For instance, there was a scene that Carrie runs to Miranda's place when she is sad and lonely. That occurs to all of us also, when you have really good friends.  I have helped my friends like that, I have been helped like that.   

The dialogue they carry in the TV and this movies.  That sometimes make good points and make us think. ( Oh, most of us are  not like Samantha, the Sex Goddess and try to get almost all the men she meets !  Besides, she is so rich !  ) 

If you haven't seen it , enjoy !  We, girls are talking about the DVD , Pyjama night to watch the whole stories.  If you are man, try to find out the deeper meaning of each scene.  It is actually deeper than you think.  

Saury Sushi


Samma ( Saury ) is in season now.   This is sushi I bought at super market.  

Saury, Sardine.... these silver / blue fish is good for you.  

EPA, DHA etc... I heard if you eat fish 6 times a week, that is very good for you.  ( Say, there are 3 meals a day, you have 21 meals a week. )
