Unfortunately it was a so bad day today. I don't know why but I really missed Japan and felt like I could live in Boston no longer. No no, be strong and cheer up!! My strong point is that I am a really simple person so I though maybe I could be fine when I had nice food. I was trying to make some hearty meal. Actually I wanted to have some meat!
But the bad news again. I didn't have any meat in the fridge and there were only one pack of tofu and some vegetable in the fridge. But I had no energy to go to grocery shopping. So I tried to make some food with only really healthy ingredients.
I was kind of nervous because I even felt like if I couldn't make good food, it had to make me feel so sad and I couldn't get over...
