Shogun of Japan 将軍

Okay, I've never reviewed Shogun here on my blog. Like I said, you get the best sushi at Brookshire's here in Tyler, TX. Shogun is one of those fake Japanese restaurants. Only thing I actually liked was salmon roe sushi. Others were way too small. I asked the waitress what kind of miso soup it is. She said "soy bean paste". OMG, I know what miso soup is. I needed to know what kind of miso soup it was. Then she brought my miso soup with my beer even before my edamame.

Marcus got some teriyaki chicken and shrimp.

Marcus thought it was a coaster. It's a saucer, Marcus!!

New Toilet 新しい便器

This toilet came with the house, and we used this for over a year. It didn't flush good so we had to flush twice every time.

So, we bought a new one today. It took us about 30 mins to replace the toilet. Hopefully it flushes better (at least it looks like it when I tested without anything in it). Only thing I don't like about this toilet is that the tank lid is not flat, which is not a big deal.

We also bought this non-slam lid. I love it!! Only $20!!

Aglio Olio e Peperoncino ペペロンチーノ

It's really sad that you can't find any Italian restaurants that serve real Italian around here. Probably you can't even fine one in Dallas. So, I had to cook real Italian classic, Aglio Olio e Peperoncino.

fedelini, garlic, chili pepper, oil-EVOO, salt, pepper

Smartpost? スマートポスト

If you can't see this clearly, please click on the screenshot to see it better. I think this is ridiculous. It left Dallas early in the morning on the 15th, and Estimated Arrival is 19th? How can it take 4 days to come to Tyler from Dallas? It's 2 hours drive!! I think this should be called Dumbpost instead of Smartpost. Maybe I need to stop using Amazon's free shipping option.

Koko Is A Good Girl いい子で留守番

Hopefully, this will be the last time she has to wait for this long. Koko had to stay home alone for about 9 hours again. But she was doing really good. Didn't even cry!

I'm gonna sleep all day....

Is it about time?

Maybe not...

Chicken and broccoli for dinner.

Chicken thigh, broccoli, ginger root, garlic, green onion, oyster sauce, soy sauce, sake, Toban Djan, sugar, salt, pepper, vegetable oil, sesame seed oil

Warm Day 暖かい日

As usual, after a week of extremely cold weather, it's warm again. But it looks like it's gonna be cold again Wednesday and Thursday. Stupid weather!

So, snow from yesterday is all gone.

DirecTV came over today to install the system. I think it looks really ugly having the dish on the roof. It's pretty big.

Koko doesn't really care about the weather. She's happy anyways.

Snow Again また雪

Yeah snow. I really don't like having snow.

Looking outside snowing...


Koko escaped after this. She was running around the neighbors and didn't come back for a while...
