Breakfast: Rolled oats with raisins and almonds
Lunch: Crumpets, sandwich
Dinner: Flatbread, rice, vegetables
Today I had crumpets after a very long time, and they tasted exactly like I remembered them. Crumpets are such delightful little things, I sometimes wonder why it isn’t more popular. I guess there are many other such foods and if everything we thought was good became popular we will end up with too many choices, and confusion. And crumpets, like many other foods, taste more delicious when it becomes less easily accessible.

Real Kobe beef cannot be found in the U.S, even at celebrity chef’s restaurants that offer ‘Kobe’ beef. It is now illegal to import (or even hand carry for personal consumption) any Japanese beef. Before 2010 you could import only boneless fresh Japanese beef, but none was real Kobe. So the ‘Kobe’ beef you probably had was probably an imitation from the Midwest, Great Plains, South America or Australia.
Even though Kobe Beef, as well as Kobe Meat and Kobe Cattle, are patented trademarks in Japan, these trademarks are neither recognized nor protected by U.S. law.
If you paid lots of money for a supposedly Kobe beef dish, don’t worry. It was probably still very good beef, but not Kobe beef.
