    Just look at the meat before lightly boiled in the soup
    [​IMG]

    Yummy - you don't even have to put into the sauce, the meat itself is so sweet
    [​IMG]

    Next to our table 2 old men having sukiyaki, even though we're almost done with our meal, we just have to have them sukiyaki so

    Another Matsusaka for the sukiyaki
    [​IMG]

    OMG
