Feel Good Friday

The Girl Next Door Grows Up
Blog started this Feel Good Friday meme. Pick one of her prompts and write about it on your blog!


Well, I won’t be home to link up with this meme today but I am thinking of all of you.


Today I am in Karatsu, Japan. I have three posts about it, here, here, and here.


I am here having tea and looking out at a beautiful garden. Later, I will buy the biggest bag of rice that I can carry home. This place has my favorite tasting rice. I’m a wuss and I guess 10 pounds will be it, unless I have already bought too much to carry and will be shipping it to the airport.


Have your best week ever.

Travel To Japan – Rice

As I mentioned in a post about Karatsu, Japan, I liked the rice grown in that area the best of all I tasted.

Steve Biemel told us that when Japan had a rice shortage, they got rice from Thailand and California. They liked the California rice, (it tasted like Japanese rice), while they didn’t like the rice from Thailand. They mixed equal parts of all three kinds of rice and that made it more palatable.

In Japan was the first time I ever noticed these nori strips.

Now I see them here in the states.

Place a strip on your rice.

Scoop rice and nori up with your chopsticks.

Enjoy. Nori is loaded with minerals and low in calories. It adds a salty slightly fishy taste to the rice.
