We like most Japanese food and do a lot of our food shopping at the market two blocks from where we live. There are some foods we like that aren’t available at the Japanese grocery stores or are very expensive in the small containers sold at the local store. Here are some of the things we buy at the Big American Store, Costco, in big American sizes.
Almonds 1398 yen and Walnuts 1998 yen
Coffee Beans 1498 yen
Parmesan Cheese 1398 yen
Picante Sauce 698 yen
Pickle Relish 578 yen
Peanut Butter 1098 yen
Granola 1048 yen
A Case of Oranges 1266 yen
Soup (with a label in English so I can be sure there is no meat in it) 1468 yen
Ikebana ProgressI’ve completed three additional patterns.
Pattern #2 – straight stitches and eyelets.
Pattern #3 – corded and grouped satin stitches. I don’t like how this pulled thread pattern bunches up the fabric.
Pattern #4 is a composite pattern made up of diagonal satin and four-sided stitch.
