In honor of my new readers over in Japan, P2 and I decided to make a little Japanese food for dinner last night! Well, it was our version. What we did was take the classic methods and switched them around and made them our own! In honor of that way of cooking, I will not be giving you any recipes in this entry. I will definately tell you what we did, but I want to inspire you to take this opportunity to play around in the kitchen and have fun like we did!!! There are NO RULES!!! I will tell you the basics that you will need and then the rest is up to YOU!

The blog made it to Japan!!!!
