Napa Farmers Market

I was so happy that everyone braved the 90 degree heat and purchased a hot soup from me.  Next week it will be cold!

Miso Soup

In my technology career I was blessed to spend 3 months in Japan on business.  I just loved it.  The food was to die for; I even lost 20 lbs!  Everyone was very friendly even if they didn't make eye contact their culture was warm and inviting.  Experiencing their traditions was something that will stay with me forever and I do hope I can take Wesley to Japan one day.   A memory while I was in Japan.  During the day I had a translator that I worked with at night I was on my own.  I went to a sushi bar for dinner.  What I discovered was that each bar only focuses on one kind of dish...Sushi, Unagi, Tempura, Soba,...
