Attempting to Save my Afternoon

20190421_171509I really hoped that Today’s Perfect Moment would be the Toronto Maple Leafs advancing to the next round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. I even took pictures to that effect.  Sadly, it will have to wait until Tuesday.

If that isn’t going to be Today’s Perfect Moment, I will have to go with my second candidate. Not surprisingly, it is food.  In this case, it is Japanese food.

In my early days of Japan, I took some chances at the local supermarket.  I am not saying I took giant leaps, or that I always tried something different.  No.  That wouldn’t be true.  However, once I tried inarizushi I was hooked and have been ever since.  Twenty some odd years later that sweet rice packed into tofu pockets still has my number.

It is a truly delicious treat despite how often it is overpriced at restaurants or Japanese food stores.  If it weren’t so, I would probably eat it more often.  At the Asian grocery store across the street from my house, it is quite popular and often sold out.  Often, I have no chance of getting my hands on any.

It doesn’t really make up for that game-six loss, but it does take the sting out of it a little.

If you want to read about my other Japanese food adventures, I suggest you take a look at the following posts.

I also note that I wrote another post on Inarizushi.  Please feel free to check it out.

    Even though I don’t eat meat now, I won’t deny that tonkatsu is fucking delicious.

    Super Sake Boy is a Jets fan, so we had some pain here, too….. another year of no Canadian teams in the Stanley Cup. Japanese food always makes you feel better 😉
