Kanako's Kitchen

The Challenge

Posted in Uncategorized by Francisco Toro on October 15, 2009

Hi everyone: this is Kanako’s husband piping in for a quick note. Contrary to what you may have heard, I do not enslave Kanako with a whip and force her to stay in the kitchen cooking all the delicious meals you read about here: this whole thing was her idea.

What was my idea, though, was The Challenge: we’ve decided to try to go for one full month eating only things we cook ourselves. From scratch.

No take away sandwiches, no restaurants, no chinese take out, no ready meals and absolutely no KFC (which, you’ll be tickled to know, Kanako loves.)

Nothing like that. Just honest, home cooked meals for one full month.

We’re on week one, and it’s pretty hard work. I will point out that I do cook more than shows up on the blog: usually breakfast and/or lunch is my job. Kanako plans the evening meal and dictates the recipe, and that’s what ends up on the blog.

Thanks for stopping by, and keep coming back for all the details!

    KFC? I am slightly appalled.

      I *love* to tease her about the KFC thing, but the truth is she doesn’t really go that often.

    KFC in Japan is less horrible, I believe.
    And I have to add one another thing. I love fried chicken itself and not necessarily KFC, and usually I make japanese style fried chiken (kara-age) at home. I’ve been to KFC only twice (once in Maastricht and the second in Montreal) in 5 years!

    It’s a shame you don’t have something like this


    (shamelessly taking a page from the Kepler book on Self Promotion)

    in Montreal. This would enable you to hold to “made form Scratch” while saving you time and money!

    Good luck on the challenge!

    This is my first time here and I love it!!! Thank you so much for all that you put up on your blog and lay out there for others. I know I’m behind in your journey and I look forward to catching up:)
    As for the whole KFC thing some days I love KFC and other days I hate it ( because I know what it is nutritionally:( ) I think I eat it about as often as you do!! Its a love hate thing!!
