Today’s a brown day!

Another J-grocery shopping visit yesterday evening yielded kuroke, new chopsticks, fixings for inarizushi, and a few Japanese cooking pantry staples. I wanted to do inarizushi this morning, but the weather’s much colder now that it’s nearing Christmas–yes, we Filipinos feel that Christmas is near as soon as the -Ber months arrive– and bed is such a lovely place to be.

Not much of a theme today, just a muted color palette of browns. It was supposed to be livelier, with a mix of yellows (mashed potatoes) and greens (peas) but I just found out this morning that we’re out of butter! Freshly purchased koroke aka cream croquettes to the rescue.
