We went to a friend of a friend's house.
We took a packed lunch.
Everyone else brought food to share.
It was no big deal- we didn't know.
We went there again the next day (it's ok- they invited us!)
Meg decided we needed to make up for our earlier social gaffe by providing something extra for everyone. (Very Japanese).
She made bread.
(In the bread machine, but still.)
Then she put it in a container and labelled it: "home made bread".
And she put jam in a little container marked- you guessed it- jam.
Then she proudly explained that I was to declare loudly that "This bread was not made by me it was made by MY DAUGHTER, MEG!" ALL BY HERSELF!!
That last bit is very un-Japanese.
But that's cool as I'm very un-Japanese.
So I did just that.
Minus the shouting.
