Every Supermarket Should Look Like This

In the words of my auntie Pouneh: “every supermarket should look like this.” I’m well aware of how expensive these stores can be but I still love scanning their isles and oohing and aaahing over everything. Here’s an inside look at a European bio organic supermarket:

Christchurch Farmer’s Market

I don’t want to sound too anti-Japan. Honestly, it’s a great country and there’s endless beauty but there have been a lot of things that I have been missing. Like, organic vegetables! Ugly vegetables that actually taste amazing and that are not wrapped in mounds of plastic. Oh how I love the Riccarton Market. It’s the only thing anyone should be doing on a Saturday morning. And, Posh Porridge. So good. We got the banana and boysenberry. The latter, not found in Japan. No boysenberries! Nor beetroots. And fejoias are super rare to find. Fun first day, check. For lunch, mum made soupeh jo (Persian barley soup with melt-in-your-mouth NZ lamb) which we ate with the organic bread and walnuts from the market, goat’s feta and fresh cucumber, tomato and mint.

Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving. -Terry Pratchett

Wild Boar Stew and Deer Antler Earrings

You know I live fookin’ rural when my neighbors specialize in wild boar stew and deer antler earrings. This Sunday, Kaori and Taka asked me to look after their gorgeous baby/toddler, Emma while they participated in an Organic market held in Okayama. I had so much fun and I really wanted to steal Emma but I resisted, somehow.
Here’s the pictorial evidence for ya’ll:
