I went on a walk and stopped at Marché Maisonneuve again and purchased bread, Old Bay spice mix, chèvre, asparagus, daikon, scallions and ginger ($14.20). I also purchased a bamboo steamer with hilarious Frenchgrish on the packaging.
I had two Diet Cokes in the pm (no pics).

Last night, I discoverd Ozu's masterpiece "Sanma no Aji" (An Automn Afternoon). It's a quiet, intimate portrait of a japanese family in the sixties and features many scenes in restaurants or around the kitchen.
Suddenly, I was in the mood for a family-style japanese meal and cooked while having the last of my Maker's Mark whisky (since there's no Suntory left in my house).

It was lovely. Some meals just bring peace to your heart.
