goodies

After visiting my family at home, I came back hauling a bunch of groceries to my sj apartment. (Thank you Mom and Dad!) For some reason I’ve been in a huge cooking mood, so after only three days I already have a ton of pictures.

bonito flakes, kewpie, avocado, egg

I can’t wait to take it out after the flavors merry a bit more :)
