Paper Crane

Tonight I was treated to dinner by one of my former students who lives close to where I am teaching this week. I have known her for about 10 years and she has attended many of my courses through the years. She will also be in my course next week.

The chopstick holders were really cute as they were shaped like cranes.

I really like miso soup and will sometimes make some at home. However, what I make is usually not as good as what I get in a good Japanese restaurant.

For an appetizer we had some nice salmon sashimi. The salmon was really nice, especially with a little bit of wasabi mixed with soy sauce.

We also had some tempura prawns. They were also very good, but a bit messy. The tempura was really nice and crisp.

For my main dish I had the Chicken Curry. This is basically a chicken katsu served with a curry sauce. This was really good and also a very large dish of food. I was really surprised as to how big the portion size was.

After our dinner I visited the home of my student and met her husband, daughter and niece. It was a very nice evening with good conversation, good company and some nice tea.
