weekend meal

Those foods that I cooked and ate on this Sunday.
the salad with cucumber, tomato and octopus. The dressing was white vinegar, olive oil, ggrated sesame seeds, salt and pepper.

edamae. It is a popular appetizer in summer here. People drink beer with them.

a spaghetti with pesto genovese. There are a bunch of basil that my mother grew. She don't use them even though she grow basil. So, I made the it. She don't use them on cooking, but she eat this pasta. haha.

This is a Japanese simmered dish, "Iwashi no nitsuke". Some people simmer Iwashi(sardines) with Umeboshi(salted Japanese apricot which taste salty and sour. non-Japaense wouldn't be familiar with it).
