The 4th of July

When I woke up this morning it sooooo didn't feel like the 4th of July. There was no Matt Lauer, Al Rocker, or Meredith Vieira hosting the 4th of July parade on television. Not to mention, I didn't even smell any BBQ in the air. UGH!! THIS SUCKS!! . I know!! I know!! It's not the Japanese's Independence Day, but I wish it was.

Well, eventually as the day progressed, I cheered up. Originally, Alex and I were suppose to go over his friend's house to celebrate, but we changed our minds. We decided to BBQ here at the house. YIPPEE!! However, we didn't have all that we needed to do a BBQ, so we stopped off at "Joyful Honda" ( basically a two story Super Walmart) for groceries.

What is the 4th of July without a bottle of Sake.......
Sushi anyone??
In Japanese grocery stores, they always have food neatly prepared for you to grab and go for lunch or dinner. Some things look tasty while others look questionable.

Chicken aisle......woo hoo!! Wings here I come.

Alex looking at the seafood. This man cuts and scales the fresh fish for you. It's actually pretty interesting to watch. Mmmm........No fish today!! We gotta get some chicken in our lives!!

Well, even though the morning started off a little sketchy, I had a great 4th of July here in Japan. I had my bbq wings, shish kebabs, baked beans, corn, honey rolls, and dessert. What more could you ask for here in Japan for the 4th!!
