I don't have a green thumb but sometimes I get lucky. I have one houseplant which I've had for about 3 years. Since my cat refuses to leave it alone, the houseplant sits on the top of the fridge. I can't admire it from that height. So, every morning, I take it down from the fridge and place it on my desk. If I am gone for any extended period it goes back up on the fridge. I don't know the name of this plant, but every so often it will bloom. It has two flowers now.
The past week I have been busy putting together a press release for my upcoming show. This week, I need to get the postcards printed and the press release sent out.
What is Natto?
Certain Regions in Japan eat Natto. It is a popular dish for any meal in the Tohoku region where I live. Natto is a fermented soy bean dish. My husband likes to eat it sometimes for breakfast. The Japanese say " neba, neba" to describe the gooey, slimy consistency of natto. It also has a very distinct aroma. To me the smell is a cross between ammonia and rotten meat. I tried a dish that looked like Natto once in a restaurant, and it was pretty good. However, there was no smell and no "neba, neba," so maybe it was something else.
I found an interesting video on youtube that explains natto and how to eat it.
I love beans. I am still looking for that perfect Natto ... something similar to what I tried in the restaurant.
