Menu Plan Monday for Oct. 31 – Nov. 4th (and fun in the park)

The weather has been absolutely fabulous here the past several days. Especially the weekend! And considering every weekend for the past month has been rainy and dreary, I was so glad to have a sunny weekend finally!

Saturday, Hisa and I went to the park to enjoy the lovely weather. We have neither a baseball, baseball gloves, or a football, so we ended up playing catch with a tennis ball (because we’re cool like that). It worked out quite well though, surprisingly enough! Tennis balls are soft enough that you don’t need a glove to catch them.

We also played Frisbee for awhile, but as you may remember, I’m horrible at Frisbee, so we didn’t play that quite as long. Around the time the sun started going down (4:30pm. Oh, Japan), we just walked around the park and enjoyed the changing leaves. It was a fun afternoon.

Japanese Ginkgo trees are so pretty in the fall!


My husband has this condition that makes him unable to take a normal picture on the first (or second) attempt. I’m pretty sure this is due to high levels of silliness in his blood.

The second attempt at a picture resulted in an equally silly face, so this is actually the third attempt. Third time’s the charm! By the way, don’t we look cool in our sunglasses? Prescription sunglasses: best idea ever.


Menu Plan for Oct. 31 – Nov. 4:

  • Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and tossed salad
  • Pad Thai and tom yam kung soup
  • Japanese curry rice and miso soup
  • Spaghetti with bolognese sauce and tossed salad
  • On Nov. 4th, Hisa’s co-workers are having a going away dinner for us, so we’ll be eating out that night.
