Calpis cultured butter. Yep, that Calpis (or Calpico). Almost as good as French cultured butter.

My mother wanted roast beef for Mother's Day. So we got this. Kuroge wagyu from Imahan. Can't do any better than that! 1200 yen per 100g for the equivalent of "eye of round" in US terms, just under 700g, 9,021 yen. It was worth it

Funassyi with a Tony Tony Chopper (One Piece) hat on his head, posing backstage at a taping of the VS Arashi game show on Fuji TV. The episode aired last night (Thursday, May 4) - Funassyi was a “special guest” of Team Kojima, lead by Kazuya Kojima of the comedy duo Unjash. Kojima was Funassyi’s partner in Detective Funassyi last year, which also aired on Fuji TV. The whole team was dressed as characters from One Piece (which airs on Fuji TV in Japan too), but I’d say Funassyi was by far the cutest.

So I needed some corned beef for a recipe, so I did a quick search and ordered a 4-pack from Amazon (Japan). When it arrived, I noticed for the first time that it was called "New Corned Meat", not "corned beef". "Hahah", I say to my mother jokingly, "corned meat! Maybe it has horse in it or something." I take a closer look and...yep, right there on the front, it says "horsemeat (baniku) and cowmeat (gyuuniku, beef)". !! Not that I am adverse to horse meat...it's low in fat and pretty good. But you know, I was expecting corned beef, so. The lesson for the day is: read the description and label better, especially when shopping online. It would be helpful if they put a little picture of a horsey on the tin though.
