Jared made sukiyaki for his friend's final meal during her stay with us in Chicago. Yet another perfect winter dish! Yum! We'll be doing this at least a few more times this winter, that's for sure! Now, this does remind me of our little incident at a sukiyaki restaurant in Tokyo involving the rest of my family back in 2006... Thankfully we redeemed ourselves by having a normal non-embarassing sukiyaki meal in Kobe.
In other news, does anyone remember the song "It's All Because of You" by 4P.M. (total flashback to 1995- anybody got any flannel?) The original melody came from a Japanese song called Sukiyaki, although the song has nothing to do with sukiyaki, or even food for that matter. Enjoy this video I just found of them performing in Japan- cracks me up.
