apricot & maple keys (COUNT=1399)


In STL last Sunday so celebrated mother’s day this long weekend. Mostly according to plan but I couldn’t find any plums anywhere. Apricot with an extra touch of rice vinegar seemed to do the job.

Walking to Tsujiri to pick up the matcha desserts, he said: look, maple keys. Indeed, bright tulips floating on a sea of maple keys.
