Today I felt like eating something for lunch that wasn’t Japanese. I had a bagel and cream cheese followed by a doughnut. It seemed like a safe enough choice until I bit into the doughnut. It wasn’t filled with jam as I was expecting but with azuki beans. Well I decided to try to eat it since lots of Japanese desserts use these beans. I thought that they would have been sweet but no they tasted just like cold red kidney beans. So the doughnut ended up in the bin. I think it’s going to take me quite a while to get used to some Japanese foods.
