Why I Miss Japan

I miss celebrating ohanami with friends, students and co-workers. Picnics under the cherry blossoms were among some of the highlights of my two years in Japan.

I miss going to the okonomiyaki shop near my apartment when I was teaching in Japan. (Image from here)

I also miss Japanese TV shows! Too funny!!!

ok, i made and tried the lasagna noodles , and i won't buy again... never again. They were totally totally amazing and so so yummy.

Oh, YAY!!! I am soooo happy to hear that! What's even better is that by the time you go to the grocery store to buy whole wheat lasagna noodles, you can make them at home even faster! It's crazy how easy and fast it is to make the noodles, eh? To think, the lasagna noodle recipe came out of necessity! I was at home with no lasagna noodles and wanted lasagna one night. I just figured I'd throw those ingredients together and presto!

Never again will I buy lasagna noodles either! :) So glad it worked for you!

I know a woman who lived there for a cpl of years with her kids and hubby. It was great for them b/c the kids actually learned Japanese. She loved it and still misses it as well

Yes, being overseas is quite the experience. I miss those days.

I found a link on your blog to the Cutest Blog on the Block so now I changed the look of my blog AGAIN.
I have wanted to do this for awhile but never knew how so Thanks!

Just checked out your "new look"! Super cute! Love it! The Cutest Blog on the Block is great, isn't it? It's so easy to use their templates and they have so many different ones to choose from!

I've added you to my blog roll.
