I'm so glad we decided to go through the community library to get to the Foreign Buyer's Club at Rokko Island today. We lucked out, man! They were having a special international food/craft/antique/fun fair and the four of us spent quite a while there, examining exquisitely made Japanese dolls, handmade pottery, Indian tunics, jewelry, food, and much more. (OK, I think Stephen and I had more fun than the kids, but they seemed happy, anyway. How blessed can a mama be!)
I bought myself four mugs (see photo) for an early Christmas present, and those GORGEOUS shortbread cookies. One was curry and cardamom and the other was rosemary and thyme. Oh wow.
My new mission in life: Replicate them, and pronto.
