Do you know what it is?? It's a tsukemono (pickled vegetable) maker. I've been wanting to try my hand at making my own tsukemono so when Wendell said he was going to Marukai today, I asked him to pick me up one of these gadgets.
Any of you ever called tsukemono "kon kon"? I swear that's what we used to call it in my family, but whenever I would talk about kon kon to my friends they wouldn't know what I was talking about. Then they would go, "Ooooh, ko ko." Hah? No . . . not ko ko, kon kon.
Anyway, I'm still not even sure how to use this thing yet. I think I'll go to Don Quijote at lunch time tomorrow and look for some kind of vegetables to use. Wish me luck!!
weed or flower - I've seen this cute weed/flower along the riverbeds as well as on the edges of people's properties. Apparently it is called persicaria capitata or himetsur...
