I love Japanese food– but sometimes, I hate Japanese prices! Grrrr! I love watermelon (not that this is particularly Japanese, in fact, I feel like it’s sort of an international standard food of summer)! And it’s very popular here. However, I have yet to eat watermelon because it’s so flipping expensive! The shape is also very different than the watermelons I’m accustomed too. Rather than the large oval shape, the ones here are much smaller and more circular.
But it’s the price that kills me. In this picture– the watermelons posted are worth about $17.00!!!!!! Can you even believe that?!? No way am I paying that much! I’ll just pass them every day and sigh wistfully… but I REALLY want to eat watermelon this summer!
Yum yum school lunch! This is a pretty standard example of the deliciousness I get to eat everyday at work!
Recently, I went to a potluck party with my Japanese friends. SO much food!
