After a lone 65F day, it has turned cold again and we've gotten some snow up here.  Just a dusting, though.  Still, this kind of weather requires hot soup, particularly clam chowder in a bowl of hand-made bread.  Yum.  Thick, hearty soups of all kinds will be kept in the warmers in case any of you get cold.

It's Golden Week back in Japan.  The town I used to live in was a big vacation destination.  As such, the main national road that wound along the coast was gridlocked for the entirety of this week of National Holidays, so we would stay around our home, go for walks in the neighborhood, up into the mountains, whatever.  So, some traditional Japanese spring food: takenoko gohan (baby bamboo rice), dried fish (local specialty where I once lived) and nanohana (a relative of broccoli if I remember correctly), kashiwa mochi (for Boy's Day), and I think some manju because mm, manju. 

 

Fly your koinobori high and help yourselves!

There will always be some fine, B-kyuu (second level) Japanese cuisine, but for Mother's Day (HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!) I'll get the grill going for a nice, spring barbecue!  Hot dogs and hamburgers, and some french fries and potato salad for good measure.

So my colleague went down to Menonimee/Marinette on Wednesday when it was 45F with thick fog up here.  I guess he got out of his car and it was 75F and sunny.  Lake Superior does not allow such shenanigans until we are well into June and the solstice approaches.  But who doesn't love a good brat?  Brats and grilled hamburgers and, heck, let's season up some kebabs and put those on the barbecue as well!

The weather for the Memorial Day weekend is rainy and stormy here, so we'll have our picnic inside.  Sandwiches- nay, subs for all!  Let's add some pasta salad and potato salad, but I hate coleslaw so none of that.  Also, if you want mayonnaise, you're out of luck.  I shot the mayo delivery man...

Spoiler

...a dirty look and he has never come back.
