This week I hosted a ohanami (Cherry Tree Blossom Viewing) party at my house with my Cooking Instructor friends. It was a potluck party and every body brought a dish with a bottle of wine. Unfortunately, the flower blossoms season was close to an end along the meguro river and there wasn't so much to view, so I got some branches from a flower shop to decorate my dining room and it turn out just fine.
As everyone joining the party were professionals of culinary art, the table was a work of art itself, and we all had a wonderful lunch, needles to say. And yes, I made two Tex-Mex dishes, a layer dip and a chopped salad to add color.
