No extra butter, made apple sauce with rum and just brushed marmalade jam on apples and sprinkled sugar and spices. Good to go. I use Dufour puff pastry.

It is getting colder here than Paris.

I got so excited and changed my dinner plan and rushed to get some Spanish ingredients.
One of the highlights was grilled scallions with dip. I don't know about the dip, so I just mixed artichokes, garlic, lemon juice, Parmesan cheese and olive oil in the food processor.
What a feast. I simply grilled vegetables on a grilling rack that was handmade in Kyoto. Yum.
Pictured is a gray plate I found at the flea market for $8!

Someone who served dessert on this plate to her roommate told me that the next day the roommate asked to borrow the plate and she served nice presentation of fruits. They shared the nice tea time again. That makes me happy.

We wonder "Who am I?" and try to figure it out or express ourselves.
Even people who are not artists, they explore to find something in their jobs and activities in everyday life.
It is very difficult, painful and scary to face yourself. I am very impressed and inspired by people who try to do it very hard and stoicly.
Nobody's fool you can watch Mr.Nara's discussion video.

Chicken and pepper stew, colored green and beans. She used crushed garlic for everything. It was simple and very tasty. I was so inspired and cooked it at home next day.

Hitoshi is a photographer who has been exhibiting his works in slide shows at film festivals, museums, galleries and public spaces in the US and Japan.
Slide shows are different from printed photos. They are not permanent objects like photographs. They are fleeting images.
When I was a kid, I thought photos were simply taken by cameras using certain techniques.
It took a long time for me to realise that this is not the case. Photos capture something that you saw, not just with your eyes, but with your mind and all of your senses.
I saw his photos in small slides on his work desk. I was in his views and memories - in the moment. I experienced his very warm and sensitive views of daily life.
I wonder what kind of experience I can have if I see those images as momentary time flows.
I haven't had a chance to go to his slide show yet and I am really looking forward to it.
He will exhibit his work, including a new series, from Aug 13 at several museums and galleries in Japan.

My new friend told me about La Patisserie des Rêves. I bought one slice of tarte tatin and the staff wrapped it up in a cute pink box and bag. Other patisseries were usually casual and wrapped cakes with a sheet of paper - well it was fine with me though.
The apple flavor was very strong and thick.
Here is pink again. Chic but pop colors everywhere. People aren't afraid to enjoy colors here.

I produce ceramics and he collects vintage bicycles. Well, the space for them is our struggles.
We join the NY bike jumble as a vender.
There was a street fair at 5 Ave right next to the old stone house where the jumble was.
Bike maniacs came first in the morning and hipsters came afternoon.
A lot of people came to the market and hang out the area.
It is nice to see people into bikes, like people into ceramics.
