Welcome New Subscribers! 
I woke up this morning to no internet.  Well, not exactly – I have data on my phone.  I had no internet connection on my computer and my iPad is wifi only, so all I had was my phone. I checked my email, but I couldn’t write or post my newsletter on my phone.  Yes, I know – first world problems

Enjoying Japanese Cuisine

The title may be a bit misleading - cuisine sounds expensive and beyond our budget - but the food we ate on our recent trip to Japan was so delicious that many may classify it as cuisine.  None of the meals topped $25 per person and some were less than half of that but we enjoyed them all.  Here is what we ate:

Udon Noodles

On our first night we sampled udon noodles at Tokyo Mentsudan.  Udon noodles are soft thick noodles that are cooked by plunging them in and out of boiling water. Toppings such as egg, cheese, meat or broth are added for flavor.
