Spooky Halloween Sushi

<span class="bigPic"> <img src="" alt="Black rice sushi cube with uni and smoked paprika"/> </span> <p>I recently realized that in all the six years that Sushi Day has been around, I've never once done a single Halloween post.</p> <p>Not a single one!</p> <p>Obviously, that needed to change.</p>

Japan Day 6: One fish, no fish, raw fish, goatfish

<p>On the morning of our sixth day in Japan, we planned to go to Tsukiji fish market with Rachael.</p> <p>Key word: "planned".</p> <p>We dragged ourselves out of bed around 3am. Neither Son nor I are morning people (we're more likely to be going to bed around 3am), so there was definite dragging involved, however before long we were up and ready to go see some fish!</p> <p>And then we got stuck in our hotel.</p> <p>Seriously.</p> <p>As I've mentioned

Japan Day 5: Amazing Kate!

<p>On our fifth day in Japan, we spent the morning without Rachael and her family, as they had another commitment.</p> <p>So what did we do with our time by ourselves?

Fridgg: A place for people who love food

<p>This post is about you guys. I adore you, you guys are incredibly precious to me, and I have a new project that I've created just for you.</p> <span class="bigPic"> <img src="" alt="Kimchee, bacon, and egg sandwich"/> </span> <p>We all know you guys like food. Looking at photos of food, reading about food, learning about and drooling over all types of different foods.</p> <p>That much is clear - otherwise, why would you be here?</p> <span class="bigPic"> <img src="" alt="Cauliflower

Japan Day 3: In which we eat the Tokyo Skytree

<p>A big part of why we went to Japan this summer was to be there the same time <a href="">Rachael</a> was there. Since she's lived there before, speaks and reads Japanese fluently, and - oh, yeah - we have <a href="">a podcast about Japanese food</a> that we do together, we decided that we should definitely, absolutely take a trip to Japan together.</p> <p>She goes to Japan every summer because her husband's company sends him
