It was a day of absolute gluttony. Not only did I enjoy a small bag (only by American standards...since the large bag was nearly as tall as I was) of the world's best kettle corn at the Orange County Marketplace that morning, but in the afternoon, the Royster and I sampled about 8-9 delicious types of tofu-based foods. We also had some of my absolute favorite desserts- kinako mochi (see the obaasans pounding it below) and peanut butter mochi. My two discoveries of the day were shiratake noodles (Yes Jonathan! I did get some!!!) and wheat grass! I thought I'd want to start mooing after I drank it, but I actually kinda liked it and got a few packets of it.
Since I still can't run, this morning we woke up and headed straight into the kitchen to dice and prepare a number of different dishes with all of the 10-12 types of produce we purchased from the market yesterday- fresh pineapple salsa, guacamole, a tofu & veggie stir fry, fruit salad and vegetable salad. We felt like hippies (but ones who still like to use deodorant). All good fun.
