fun in the kitchen
An exceedingly fun twist on that traditional standby date "dinner and a movie" is to take a cooking class on how to make traditional Japanese dashi, ramen, and mochi, followed by a showing of the lovely movie Tampopo. Dude, I so did not recognize Ken Watanabe with hair and without Tom Cruise.
One day we'll go totally bourgie and take a sushi-making class. For now, it is fun learning that there's more to life than Top Ramen.
