My friend came to visit my house over dinner.
I had been thinking what to cook for dinner throughout the day today.

I had a lot of dishes in my mind

I couldn't cook everything today,
so I am going to save those ideas for next time
I asked her to come over for dinner again

She bought us taro & greem tea cakes
She called the green tea cakes as "green tea flakies"
but she is not sure what it's called.

They were sooo nice
but I forgot to take photos...

Anyway, long time no cooking for someone else
Felt so good

No lonely dinner tonight.

Ah but I'm so full

I need to do some exercise on wii fit tomorrow
