Japan - Furano - Where to Eat Sushi

unagi (eel) & king crab sushi - Fukuzushi
regular chirashi bowl - Fukuzushi

I had been craving sushi on our way to Furano Japan and I was particularly looking forward to visiting a sushi restaurant that I had been when I last visited Furano, when I arrive we were informed that it was now closed which was a little disappointing. We asked around and were able to find a few other places to try,  they are all located in Furano town which is about a 5 minute taxi from the ski hill or a 15 minute walk.

Chocolate, Cranberry, Apricot Hot Cross Buns

Usually about 3 weeks before an upcoming holiday I think I must cook something special for the occasion and post it on the blog but as usual I seem to have gotten so busy with work that I have had little time to cook anything. But with Ollie away sailing and most of my friends away for easter break I have had a bit more time to myself to do some baking and cooking. I quite like hot cross buns but I have never been a big fan of raisins and dried fruit peel.

Baked Sweet Potatoe Wedges with Caper Yogurt Dip

I have been a bit lazy the last few nights, Ollie is racing in the Rolex China Sea Race to the Philippines and I always prefer cooking when there is someone else to cook for. So I seem to be making mostly snacks and eggs for my dinner... Sweet potato wedges are so tasty and so easy to make they are perfect healthy snack or great served beside grilled chicken or a homemade burger if your not being lazy.
