Gah its been a busy busy day and its not even noon yet. Ok.. wait it just turned 12 about five minutes ago.
Had my Hello Work money day in the morning instead of the afternoon and ended up missing my bus because Ryohei had used my hanko (stamp seal) and hadn’t put it back in the right place so I had to walk 30 minute to the area and just made it on time. Anyways got out about 15 minutes later… but what turned out to be my “last” payment day is apparently not. I have 17 more days of getting Hello Work money SO I have to come back to Nagaoka late next month and get my next paycheck. So… thats going to be some yen down the tube to come to Niigata and back to Tokyo for just 15 minutes of sitting in a room but considering that 17 days work of Hello Work is about 8 times the price of a ticket I guess its worth the inconvenience.
Sakura is now fully crawling. She can’t speed across a room yet but she can go at least 4 or 5 paces in particular if she is being enticed by food or a toy that she likes. She also… brace yourselfs people… slept through the night last night. I don’t know why. Maybe because she finally got the whole crawling thing down she was exhausted. We put her to bed around 8:30 and then she woke up and Ryohei put her back to bed around 10:00 and then not a peep until around 5ish when she woke up and I took her into bed with me for a feed and then we both fell back asleep until 7:30. Will be interesting if tonight is a repeat performance!
Ryohei is in Tokyo today meeting how new co-workers. He won’t be home tonight so it will just be Sakura and I and then he’ll be late tomorrow because he has a nomikai… so won’t be seeing him for a while I guess. Taking care of Sakura with no help and no one to talk to can get so tiring… I am glad that at least in a couple of weeks should the same thing occur I can hope that at least one of my friends will be free to meet up and break the monotomy of staying home with a young baby all day.
Anyways here is my one for tuesday recipe. I love banana bread but wanted to try a different take on it and use up some honey we had before our move. This turned it really well and the ingredient are very Japan friend (aka can get them all at the local super as opposed to having to make it out to an import shop)
1/2 c. butter (115 grams)
1/2 c. honey (115 grams)
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. chopped nuts – i use walnuts (50 grams)
4 mashed bananas
2 c. flour (250 grams)
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. salt
1st Mixture: Cream butter and honey together. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.2nd Mixture: Add the salt and put the soda in the mashed bananas and add to the 1st mixture. Add the vanilla mix the nuts in and add the flour; beat well. Bake in a loaf pan, in 180 C degree oven for 1 hour.
