“Cottori San’s Original Osechi” & New Year

Happy New Year.
From the year-end and New Year’s holidays, I was suddenly pulled back to reality.

The weather was nice and warm all day, it was a really calm New Year’s Day.
This holidays, we enjoyed walking early morning!

There is a big park in the neighborhood of Ori’s house, a walk around the moat  ~A coffee break is our favorite course.
It really feels good.

And Otto-san’s favorite swing is enjoying.
On this day on the first day, there are not kids yet.

Well, this year is my first New Year to celebrate with Otto-san.
Last time Otto-san introduced it, Ori-san made “Cottori San’s Original Osechi”.

The appearance is very beautiful !
There are no elements of Osechi dishes at all (lol)
Introduction briefly.

Hand made ham
1 Coloring olive paste and salt and pepper chicken meat.
2 Wrap around in laps, 3 minutes by range. It’s three minutes back. Completion!

Because the shrimp that I bought for Vietnam roll remained,
1 Shake the salt for the shrimp a while.
2 Bake in a pan
3 Add alcohol. Steam the lid and finish it!

Vietnam roll
1 Boile the Shrimp
2 Slice the purple onions and season with Nampula, Garlic Oil. Pick up shrimp and soak it overnight.
3 Return the rice paper with water and roll up the green leaf and bean seedlings (broiled at home) and broccoli sprouts, chives and 2 onion shrimps. Completion!

carrot salad
1 Slice the carrot
2 Roast dry pine nuts and sunflower seed and add it to the carrot.
3 Arrange the taste with salt and make it!

Japanese omelette (Tamagoyaki)
1 Melt the egg and add the “Jyako” and “Aosa” powder.
2 Shake the salt and add “Amazake” to the hidden taste.
3 Grill with egg yolk machine, finished!
I make the “Tamagoyaki” for Otto-san is the first time.
I do not put in sugar, Otto-san was the same, so I am relieved (lol)

Bean salad
1 chopped purple onion.
2 Immerse mixed beans and 1 onions in olive oil, vinegar and salt, ready!

Persimmon, avocado and tomato salad
1 Cut persimmon and avocado into bite size. Tomatoes in half length.
2 Dare with olive oil and salt pepper, finish with cumin.
I used cumin for the first time, it is delicious!
Otto-san was damaged by the sweetness of persimmon, but it was so delicious. Ori-san push!

Cauliflower and edamame curry flavor
1 Sauteed frozen edamame and cauliflower with garlic oil.
2 Add curry powder to the finish.
I forgot to put anchovies! I notice this time.

Brown rice ball onigiri
Part 1 The pickles and the “Jyako”
Part 2 Black sesame and wasabi
It seems that the flavor of wasabi flew away as time goes on.
It seems that it could have been added more violently 😀

When I thought that it was colorfully made with side dishes that can be cooked, it became an assortment of just as simple things as I usually make almost 😀
I was glad that Otto-san was pleased.
We finished the meal cleanly!


First New Year’s Preparation

Good evening. It is Ori-san.
I have a really reliable Otto-san to my husband, Ori-san is a happy person.
Cotori-san surely will be relieved.

Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve.
The first New Year ‘s greetings with Otto-san.
Today from the morning, I am preparing “Osechi & Ozoni”.

I’ve never been to New Year ‘s cooking since I have stayed at my parent home last year and New Year’ s holiday.
I managed  get ready for a look!

Nonetheless, Otto-san and Ori-san are not like old-fashioned “Osechi”…
So, it seems that a pretty original “Cottori Family’s Osechi” will be completed.
The completed figure will be released on New Year’s Day!

Osechi is likely to be far from the original thing,
I am hoping to reproduce “Hakata-Zoni” which Ori-san has eaten since long ago.
There seems to be various kinds of “Ozoni” all over the area, but is “soup” important for “Hakata-Zoni” ?
To prepare delicious soup stock, it is preparations from tonight.

Material of soup stock
· “Yaki-ago” (It does not start without this! Flying fish burned with charcoal fire)
· “Donko-Shiitake” (thick dried mushroom shiitake)
· kelp
· Dried squid
· Bonito
There are lots of it. Moreover, the kelp and the dried squid used this time is from “Shinsen” that I had at the time of worshiping Ise.
I wonder if it will be a profit.
Immersed in water overnight, and boiled out tomorrow.

It would be nice if I could complete for the first time.
I wonder if Otto-san will be pleased!


Birth and Fetal movement

Good morning. I’m Ori-san.

The day before yesterday, there was “Mochituski” at Otto-san’s home.
Perhaps the first time to participate in “Mochituski”?
Mochitsuki rice cakes are delicious.
I reviewed a little about “Omochi” 😀

A big incident occurred yesterday than such a thing.
The hospital which was going to give birth is suddenly closed · · ·
It is due to circumstances of adults on the management side,
It seems there is no problem with the hospital,
I understood that we can not accept birth for a while.
Moreover, I found a phone call from me · · ·  It was really shocking.

However, it is truly reassuring that a person who thinks together as myself is next to me.
Even when I was calling a hospital, Otto-san was there next to me, so I think I managed to keep it at ease.

We changed the schedule and we had a meeting.
Yesterday I was able to find a place to accept painless labor in a nearby hospital.
It seems that costs are suppressed as a result 😀  It was good that I did not go over the years like this.
Although it is a little uneasy that it is not a painless specialist hospital, I will try to talk firmly with my midwife.

However, the anxiety seemed to have been big, and now I became alone Tears stopped stopping in the morning.
(It’s a secret to Otto-san, lol)
But as I spit out here, this story is over.
In a new hospital, I pray only for meeting with Cotori-san, I will switch my mind!

But, there were also very good things.

I was able to feel fetal movement for the first time in a car headed for Mochitsuki.
After that, Cot0ri-san is moving cheerfully in my stomach.
I wonder if I wanted to participate in “Omochi Petan Petan”.

Sense of tummy movement regardless of my intention,
It is nothing … but,
New feelings for Cotori-san seems to have been born.
I’m talking to Cotori-san while stroking my stomach.
Will it gradually become a mother like this?


Merry Christmas! & The secret stoy for Otto-san

Good evening everyone.
Are you having a wonderful Christmas?
It is Ori-san who enjoyed Christmas for the first time by becoming a couple with Ott0-san.

Yesterday & today was very fun days.
As Otto-san announced, we first appreciated the Rakugo at Hakataza.
Creative rakugo was very interesting, in talking about people, tears were full, … It was a really fulfilling three hours.
At Yakitori-ya in dinner, after that Hakata specialty cart ramen!
I ate too much and my weight this morning was tough, but it became Eve like us that does not feel anything fashionable.
For details, Otto-san.

Here, a Christmas gift present from Otto-san & a gift I sent for Otto-san.

From Otto-san, I received a live DVD of ”Hiromi Uehara ”who went to a concert the other day and had a great excitement!
New Year ‘s holiday, see this and that touch again! It is!

And I gave Otto-san ‘s “Hanten”. It is Japanese traditional warm clothes.
This Hanten is made in Fukuoka!
I fall in love with the design and make a prompt decision! The figure worn by Ott0-san is here. Very Cute !

I also bought my own (deep blue).
Actually, I have ignited my sleeve that I came last year with a stove while cooking …
Please note that everyone should not wear it in the kitchen 😀

Well, today, I talked to Otto-san a story about things I bought for a secret. Deja Vu Is it?
Actually, I bought this.

I admired for a long time, the Japanese kitchen knife of GLOBAL!
I thought that I wanted to get married, but it was a chance to be 10% off.
I will try my best cooking, so please forgive me 😀


Bread! Bread! Breeeead!

Good evening.
It is Ori-san who is poor physical condition because I have 18 weeks of pregnancy and my stomach is heavy…

Last week ‘s lunch was omission.
Because it was a miraculous day-of-day bread 😀 that happens to receive two breads from different places on the same day,
I just finished making sandwich ingredients.

· Grilled salt mackerel with potato starch and baked in a pan.
· We mixed cucumber and boiled eggs with mayonnaise and black pepper.
· Marinated chopped onion and tomato with olive oil, vinegar and salt.
I surplied, mixed the dipping of celery. (Did you notice?
· We arranged hams.
· Boiled carrot, radish and Chinese cabbage with consommé and added soy milk.

Rumor “pain stock”s bread was delicious ~.
Something, wheat tastes! Or, the taste of the bread itself is delicious.
I’d like to go, but it’s a bit far away and hard. We’ll get to buy it so much, it looks dangerous (We love to eat!!)

I have never been totally interested in it, but recently I want a sweet asexual.
I wonder if it is not enough sugar.
I am looking forward to Christmas cake and I will do my best a little further this week.
Otto-san is a year-end party of work today.
Ori-san is a little boring. Do not drink too much.


Ori Food Recipe vol.Taro

Good evening. It is Ori-san.
On weekends I spent leisurely with Otto-san, It flew by in a flash
“Cottori’s Story” I have been absent.

I will explain the previous lunch.

Otto-san’s father & mother a hobby with a family garden (Pretty serious)
I always get fresh vegetables.

So this time Otto-san delivered this.
“Taro is it ~” is huge, huge! It is!
Let’s use it immediately for the next day’s lunch.

Well, where I dropped the soil thought that I would cook and cook it together with squid.
Beautiful purple · · ·. Here, sweet potatoes! It is!
Now looking at the pictures again, it’s sweet potatoes anyway 😀
In addition, Otto-san does not like sweet potato · · · ·, Hurried strategy change.

What I had to manage this squid, was born,
It was “Kouya tofu and squid stir fry”.
1 Kouya tofu and squid returned to the potato flour and curry powder were lightly dashed and fried.
I thought that if it became a deep-fried breeze, it was, not delicious!!
This is a great mistake work, a savior from the situation, rumor soup stocks appeared!
2 If you skipped watering quickly, it surprised me, it was really tasty!
Otto-san who does not know the circumstances also praised greatly. Miracle recovery, Ori-san is a genius:D

Subsequently, “Simmered radish and cherry blossoms”.
1 Boiled radish and cherry shrimp with soup stock and oyster sauce.
2 Completion the radish and it became a beautiful cherry blossom color.


“Dipping of celery”
1 Take celery streak and make it like a stick.
2 Soaked in white sauce and olive oil, black pepper.
It was soaked or like a salad and it was delicious.

“Bean sprouts and eucalyptus sold” (✖ eucalyptus)
1 Shake alcohol to sprouts, into microwave.
2 Finish with sprinkl “Yukari” and sesame oil.
It’s not eucalyptus, it’s Yukari. Eucalyptus is a leaf that Koala is eating:D

“Red ginger entering!? Miso soup”
By the way, the last challenge – red ginger.
I tried putting in 2 pieces in miso soup, it is delicious.
It was a new usage discovery. Otto-san was also pleased for this.

Oh yes, Hiromi Uehara’s live The Trio Project “SPARK” It was awesome!
Jazz pianist Uehara, long before we meet,
It was said that they were watching live at different places,
It is an artist who has some strange relationship (feeling fate arbitrarily).
After I got up tension, Otto-san bought a live DVD for Christmas gift!
Cotri-san is also raised with Hiromi (lol)

Finally this week is Christmas! Have a nice weekend.


Ori Food Recipe??

Good evening. It is Ori.
A movie that only two people eat rice silently.
Is there someone who can enjoy it?
It is something fun to watch for themselves! It is!

I am committed to introduce the recipe.

Because this is home cooking, I am making it momentum every time, it is not embarrassing to introduce, but it is embarrassing.
Incidentally, Otto-san is naming it, so let’s obey it faithfully (lol)

Boiled pork and green peppers with radish
1  Pork sliced meat with dusted potato starch and Boil.
It is a point to make the shabu-shabu after softening the boiled hot water once it is soft.
2 Fried green peppers.
Stir-fried green peppers that I ate at a Chinese restaurant the other day was delicious, so I roughly tried to imitate how to cut it.
3 Sautéed meat and green peppers and boiled with a large amount of white radish. Completion.

lotus root and tuna microwave (nice ~)
1 Lotus root, tuna, wipers and sesame oil into the Lekue!
2 Finish with pepper and white sesame seeds.

Stir-fry of spinach and crepe
1 Crispy “Chirimen-jyako” with sesame oil.
2 Add boiled spinach quickly, lightly pour out the “Dashi”, and finish with.
The taste was hardly attached, but the spinach at this season is delicious!

Bamboo shoot pickles
1 Boiling the bamboo shoots, slicing the red peppers and cutting the bonito in the soup stock.
※ In the movie “Hot Poo!” we said that because of too much chili pepper,
Actually …. It was because I was immersed straight in without noticing that soup stock was enriched 10 to 15 times!
I’m sorry, otto-san.

This is what I am indebted to carefully recently!
It will be delicious with everything in this one, which is greatly appreciated.

So, the seasoning is also an estimate so it has not become a recipe at all,
From now on I will make delicious food for Otto-san!
Can we teach Otto-san to cook this way?

The huge red ginger Otto-san bought, sour anyway, Ori-san is unable to eat!
It was a brilliant transformation with the lunch of the next day! That neighborhood is next time.

Well, Ori-san has entered the 16th week of pregnancy.
I have kept patience from pregnancy, I decided to start yoga at last.
(Before pregnancy, I got sweaty with hot yoga almost every day on my way back from work)
I went to private lessons of maternity yoga!

Originally my body is stiff, I was surprised by the decline in just 4 months! It is!
It is tough for a teacher that “hip joints are a problem”! I guess it is supposed to be thought.
I will try my best at home, yoga with bathing rising.


Honeymoon Ise edition

Good evening. I will continue to Ori-san last time.
Today is the honeymoon climax!
The story of Ise shrine visitation.

On this day, which will be the third day of my trip, I wanted to visit early in the morning,
Morning 4: 00! I forced Otto-san to awaken and headed to “Naigu”.

First of all, we had a snack at “Katapan”, a snack at the inn, and walked walking through a pitch dark town,
“Uji Bridge” is longing for more! It is!
We were able to enter the “Naigu” at the same time as the opening gate at 5:00.

That majestic … … there are no more words.
While the field of view is pitch dark and the guide plate is not well visible, only the sound of the gravel that two people stepping on will sound burns.
A fresh air that seems to expire in the winter morning.

As long as longing for many worshipers as a sacred place since long ago,
While feeling the overwhelming power of Ise,
We went quietly.
And to the main shrine “Seigu”.
I feel like I am quiet so much … I feel like I just felt the time quietly in front of God.
As soon as I got down the stone steps, my thoughts caught up and tears overflowed.
I do not quite understand what the fluctuation of that feeling was,
I’m glad I came.
It was nice to be with Otto-san.

We asked “Koyasu Shrine” firmly for a safe shipment, and we went to the inn at once.
We warmed up our cold body at a hot spring, ate a huge breakfast and went to sleep until we checked out (lol)

And again to the “Naigu”.
There was also a big goal of this trip, We pray shrine the day of “Inu-no-hi”
We received prayers in the place of “Naigu Kaguraden”
We prayed before God and ended with “ofuda” and “Shinsen” given.
Because we asked God of the highest peak in Japan, Cotori-san will be born cheerfully! It is!

And, I did not notice it in the morning, but autumn leaves in the palace were really beautiful!
It was not too cold, I could not get rain, and it was a really nice visit.

I did not reverse the original order, but from here to the “Gekuu”.
We had lunch before. It is a shock! It is!

We visited the”Gekuu” and came home.
I thought I was going to buy a lottery at the end of Ise, but I forgot (pregnant woman seems to have won it)
Let’s hit it with Ise power in Fukuoka:D

It was a short honeymoon of 3 days but it was the best trip I could spend slowly and calmly.
Next time is Cotori-san together, after 20 years? It was Ise Road that I wanted to visit with Otto-san again.
Otto-san, thank you very much.


Honeymoon Shima&Toba edition

Good evening. It is Ori-san.
Today, I will talk about the continuation of our honeymoon.

From the second day it’s time to travel to Ise · Shima.
To early morning express train to Shima · Ugata station, the first day is borrowing rent-a-car to drive Shima – Toba!

First we headed out, “Yokoyama Observatory” that overlooks the Ago-Bay.
Unexpectedly climb from morning!
However, the scenery, what the hell!

There was such a magnificent view of Ago Bay! It is! Shortness of breath will also blow away.

Next, to “Ishigami-san” to Shinmei Shrine.
This means that one woman’s wish will be granted, of course I was hoping for Cotri-san’s safe birth. Otto-san, 1 billion yen! Although it wrote as · · · 😀

While heading north on Pearl Road, we went to another scenic spot “Toba Observation Deck”.
The weather is really good this day, the sun is bright, the sea and the sky are beautiful.

And Otto-san who continues to tell me hungry from the morning, is a long-awaited lunch.
We had seafood bean-grill and gorgeous seafood rice bowl.
However, there are many people, many cars, no seafood bowls ….
Let’s be good as we could take a nap for a while as I waited for a bowl (lol)
Shrimp was trying to escape from the bowl, jumping and jumping.

To the last mission today, to “Futami Okitama Shrine”.
I wanted to visit this place on a honeymoon here that there is a benefit of husband and wife.
I wish for the happiness of our married life starting from now.

Meoto Iwa & Amulet

And it finally arrived at Ise-shi.
We had time to have dinner at the inn, so we ate “Ise Udon” specialty of Ise.
Taste is dark! It seems that it was a formidable opponent for Otto-san who is not good at soft noodles.
Well, once you eat it.

Tonight’s inn is near the Ise Naigu “Ikyu”
Both the rooms, meals and hot springs were great accommodation.
Well, tomorrow is early ! The next day the situation of the 3rd day of Ise worship visit!

Oh yeah, Osaka journey Last red ginger udon noodles, on the spot Otto-san did not say delicious, He did not share it. “Ikezu~”:D



Cottori’s painless childbirth

Good morning.
Very sunny morning, it is fresh Ori-san.

We decided to painless childbirth.
In Fukuoka it will be planned delivery in plenty little painless special hospital.
As one of the methods of childbirth, 60 to 70% have been painless in Western countries for some time and it seems that they are approaching 50% in Tokyo.
In overseas it is also narrative that driving the car by herself and leaving hospital for the next day of birth is often.

Both merit and demerit are births, but certainly it is a decisive factor that the burden on mothers and babies is low, recovery after birth is fast, and the ability to concentrate immediately on childcare later can be decided.
I do not want to hurt! It is the biggest reason:D

In the case of the clinic selected by us, the hospital stay will be somewhat longer than in natural delivery, but we are drunk here! Let’s pay hospital fee.

By the way, childbirth cost seems to be about 200,000yen higher than natural delivery.

And the midwife said to be 35 years old to have awareness of high risk birth! It is!
In the recent thirties, the body is suitable for years even though it looks young.
It seems that future health guidance seems to be difficult, Ori-san who has already gained weight a little, is uneasy lol

There was also a confirmation of intention as to how to do the amniotic fluid test because of my age.
As we were talking about in advance, we do not do the examination.
As long as we are children, we promised to grow with full power with affection.

Oh, husband’s presentation I told my teacher that I did not have a childbirth, was it good? 😀

Otto-san was showing off at once, but for the first time in 4D I saw Cotori-san in my stomach and I was thinking that I had to review my mother’s life properly. It was a clinic visit.

Otto-san wonder if he got aware of his father a little.

Well well, I’m Uki-Uki from the morning, I am leaving for our honeymoon from now.
I am going worship prayers for Ise-Jingu!
