Home in America

Asters, showing off even in winter in Michigan.
As usual, we've ventured home to America for the month of February in search of family, old friends, and winter as we know and love it best: heaps of snow, bitter cold temperatures, and a good brisk wind. Heavenly. There's nothing so wonderful as a frosty morning walk or a burning orange sunset catching the blue black brown river bottom trees as they run up to the bluffs just beyond. Well, maybe my mother's meatloaf and a good cuddle with our cat after dinner, so let's call it a three-way tie.

The Tokyo Farmers Market calendar will keep coming, of course, and I'll be sending along relevant tales of food and fun from my beloved Midwest, too. See you on the snowy side of things!
