Just kidding- it’s Pulled Pork Tacos
My son announced that he will make supper tonight. Oh goodie! I always welcome such a delicious offer. He shopped for ingredients the night before and he brought his laptop down to the kitchen for the recipe. Whew! My off night at the kitchen, well deserved. I give him pointers- #1 Take pictures of every step. #2 clean up as you go- I said loud and clear using my telepathy power. Then I’m on the way to my painting class.
I love pulled pork tacos! Like mushu pork American style right? No? Whatever, at my painting teacher’s home we drank home-brewed mint tea and ate crackers while we chatted. Well past the time but I wasn’t in a hurry. Dinner will be ready by the time I get home, maybe? After class, I stopped by a Japanese book store to check out travel books. Kyoto, Kobe,,,. My husband and my son are going to Japan next week and I need to make a list of things I want them to buy for me. Sadly, I know that I must shorten it though. 76 yen for the dollar won’t go too far. When my husband got there in Japan in December of 1976, dollar was worth 293 yen. A year later, dropped around 180 yen. Desperate, he asked his parents for more money. I read through the pages, but didn’t buy any, Japanese call this tachiyomi (立ち読み-not paying customer stand and read). I should save money here so that they could buy me Royce chocolate. I believe Royce is 1000 times better than H maker’s chocolate. My daughter can attest to that.
When I got home, the dinner was not quite ready but the yummy smell filled the house. My son’s friend was wearing my awesomely cute apron and helping him or was my son helping her? She really looked good in it. Too bad he did not take her picture.
