2021 continued where 2020 left off. It was another awkward year. Lost work, layoffs, food shortages on certain items, frozen city with no electricity for days, you name it. This year I focused my culinary energy on the good times. Birthdays, Anniversaries, Special days (IE: Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc,), and holidays such as Christmas and Thanksgiving. For me a meal means so much more than filling my stomach. Often there are good times involved and the meal is a marker of those good times. It was great to share so many great meals with so many great people in 2021. Super memories! This year I have chosen to squeeze in some photos of my own dishes as well as some of the dishes I enjoyed while eating out. Thank you for supporting my blog with your readership. It’s been an awkward year, but a great year. May God continue to provide. Bon Appetit!

This photo was taken by me at Brackenridge Park in San Antonio, Texas.

One of my favorite Japanese foods is sashimi. Think of it as sushi without the rice. Japanese food is more than a way to fill one’s stomach. It is art and balance too. If you are in Houston,¬† the place to shop for Japanese groceries is Nippan Daido. You can learn to create your own Japanese food for 75% less than restaurant prices. Which is a great thing for those of us who do not have deep pockets.

The following plate I put together  has:

Amaebi- Sweet Shrimp, Tai- Red Snapper, Saki-Salmon, Maguro-Tuna, Saba-Mackeral, Tako-Octopus, Ika-Cuttlefish, Fried Quail Egg, Radish, Carrot, Cucumber, and Avocado.

Pollen flies along

Stigma waits to germinate

Scents of love fill air.

The Model

Your beauty stellar

Dark hair flowing in the wind

Brown eyes enchanting

Red lips soft and succulent

The World admires your beauty
