Last week our impromptu Family Home Evening Lesson turned out great! The kids loved it and we had some great discussion. It was simple: My hubby told our kids about his mission to Japan and his time at the MTC.
As a follow up, we decided it would be fun to take the kids to an authentic Japanese restaurant so they could also have a taste of what Dad experienced for two years. So last night we headed to Provo's De Mae. First he gave them a quick lesson on using chopsticks....harder than they look.
Some gave up and used their fork, but others were persistent.
Our youngest didn't really like anything (he hated it) except for an appetizer...I forget the name, but they are basically a potato cake that is deep fried (a hashbrown).
Let's just say that most of our kids would be pretty skinny if we lived there. They tried miso soup, salad, gyozas, yakisoba, katsudon, and ramen (the real kind which doesn't really taste like ours at all).
