what’s cookin’

When I was up in the Bay Area, I went to Kinokuniya in Japantown to peruse the Japanese craft books. That section was pretty well picked over, but I went down another aisle and a new section was unveiled to me: the food books. Aiyaaaa! Hold me back!
Here’s one book I got. It’s a petite book all about SNACKS, and the author is named Mariko.

It has very nice drawings and photos, as you can see:

The ISBN is 4-396-41073-5.
The other book is all about fluffy snacks:

Here are a few pages:

The ISBN is 4-579-20937-0
I leave you with this photo of Megan and me that Thuy took. We were having refreshments at the cute little tea shop next to Kinokuniya. Megan got an iced cocoa, Thuy had the matcha float, and I had a pot of Darjeeling. Megan looks to be eyeing Thuy’s float, doesn’t she? This photo was taken before Megan cut my hair. I now sport a sort of shaggy mullet.
