So, today we got to the kitchen at about 9:30 and got our quiches going. We were Team Quiche, and we made 4 quiches; they were all different configurations of broccoli, ham, greens, cheddar, and feta. Cooking in Japan takes quite a bit of effort, especially if you want to cook something foreign, like quiche, turkey, pumpkin pie, or kangaroo curry. Coordinator Katie and Team Potato Brandy drove two hours to a Costco to pick up ingredients for everyone. Convenience foods aren't as easy to find in Japan, so we had to make our own crust from scratch. It was fun and made me feel more capable and less dependent on others. Team Dessert, which ended up being only Katie, pretty much, made their own pie crusts from graham crackers and ginger snap cookies. I'll have to find out where the kangaroo came from. I took Knox home for a nap in the middle of the day, so I missed some interesting details.
