ドキドキAgenasu no ohitashi (deep-fried eggplant with sauce)ドキドキ

Daddy [i.e. Taiyou] said that this!!

was crazy delicious,ドキドキドキドキドキドキ

as he ate itラブラブ!ラブラブラブラブキラキラ

And it's really easy to make~ドキドキキラキラ


degorge (salt & rinse to lessen the bitterness of) the eggplant,ひらめき電球

and after degorging it, drain the excess water,ひらめき電球

then fry the pieces (without coating/breading) in oil at 170° [Celsius]ニコニコ!!!!ひらめき電球

After that, mix ginger and soy sauce in mentsuyu (a kind of soup base/noodle broth/dipping sauce), and dip the fried eggplant in itニコニコひらめき電球

And when the flavor has really sunk in, sprinkle on some daikon oroshi (grated daikon) and katsuobushi (dried bonito shavings),

And it's done!ニコニコラブラブラブラブひらめき電球

If you want more flavor, you can pour on some more soy sauceドキドキ

It's super長音記号1 easyドキドキ

and super長音記号1 delicious,ドキドキ

so definitely, definitely, give it a tryドキドキ

Now I'll continue introducing the foodニコニコキラキラ

And Daddy came home, completely without realizing everyone was there............!!

He was so surprised he was speechless!!!!

'Cause everyone was waiting in the entryway for him to appear~ニコニコラブラブラブラブキラキラ
[note: the word she uses for "waiting" (出待ち) is used to describe when fans throng at the exit to the stage/stadium/etc. and wait for their favorite star to come out]

(...while dancing...ガーン)

He was so happy that tears were running down his faceドキドキ

And while he still wasn't quite sure what was going on, we started the partyドキドキ

We ate, and talked about lots of different things, and played games, and watched TV............ニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

Because it was at our house, everyone was surprisingly relaxed...ニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

Noa also got to play with the older kids, and she was smiling happilyニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

looked like this when it was finishedドキドキ

I was filled with a sense of accomplishment at making it, but............ガーン

Even though I was in such a rush that it was really tough to finish, being able to see his happy face made me truly happyしょぼんドキドキドキドキキラキラ

I also gave him the present I'd searched around for beforeニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

By the way.........

the present was a new wallet & chainドキドキ

He was really, *really* happyニコニコラブラブラブラブキラキラ

I was so, so gladドキドキ

Take good care of it, okay~ニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

Before we were married, he was a veryドキドキドキドキ

friend-oriented person, but now that we're married and he has this home life, after he finishes work he comes right home and doesn't go out drinking with them or anything...ドキドキ

The fact that, even when I say "It's okay if you want to go out and have a drink~"ニコニコ

he doesn't goニコニコ


something I'm really grateful for, but I also feel kinda bad about it.........しょぼん

And so I was really glad for a night like last night, where so many of his friends came and they were all able to once again raise their glasses together after so long~ニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

Because times like this when you can take a bit of a break are really important, y'know?ニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

I think that the party last night was really a big successラブラブ!ラブラブラブラブキラキラ

Because it made him really happyドキドキ

And it's that kind of special day that only comes once a yearドキドキ

And it's the day when, through such incredible pain, his mom gave birth to himドキドキ

I think it's just a really wonderful dayニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

Being able to celebrate together with everybody like this,

I felt so grateful to everyone,

And I think that the reason everyone came and celebrated with him is because he's got such a wonderful personalityニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

He cherishes his family and his friends so much...ドキドキ

It makes me think of how very happy I am that I was able to marry himニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

Maybe it's getting a bit gushy, but that's really the way I feel, from the very bottom of my heartニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

And from now on, for always, always...

I want to be able to wish him a happy birthdayドキドキ and celebrate togetherニコニコドキドキドキドキキラキラ

...whew, that was a long one...(@_@)

But it looks like it turned out to be a really nice birthday (and with some pretty damn impressive food, I think, for only have two hours to do it all in...)

~Right~? I don't think I've ever heard someone refer to a dish with eggplant as being "easy". XD
I love the "I thought it might not be enough, so I ordered a pizza" bit. Just when I think her cooking's so Japanese, she throws something like out there... XD
