    It was hot and humid on the first Sunday of September, which was yesterday. Renovation of the house next door which began last year ended recently and opened as a restaurant which serves Ohmi beef which is one of the excellent Japanese beef. I am glad that I feel the street, which is usually not very busy, is becoming active because of the new restaurant. We had guests in our cofe continuously in the afternoon. The owner (me), who is used to being slow, got a little bit panicked yesterday. Since I sometimes did not know what was happening when I had to go in the back kitchen, a local customer who is very friendly and often comes to the cafe helped to let me know that I needed to come back to the front.

    Well, here is yesterday's special lunch ; Tuna mousse, Pork and Japanese spinach dressed with mustard, Chicken meatballs, Mixed salad with daikon, mizuna and apple, Pork beans, Spring rolls, Rice with sweet potato and Chawanmushi (savory egg custard with assorted ingredients). I served many Shiratama Cream Anmitsu, too. I greatly appreciated the customer's warm heart and patience.
