Meron Pan!

Here is a picture of a “Meron Pan” which is “Melon Bread” in English and was one of my favourite things to eat during my Japanese life. It’s a sweet bread, and the top crust is a sugary cookie and it gets it’s name from its meron-like shape. I miss meron pan. And then yesterday I got some! I had an urgent lack-of-knitting-project crisis and met Erin at Romni, and picked up enough wool to knit pair of socks (and a plan for a tea cosy). And then we popped into Sanko, the Japanese corner store and I bought a meron pan which turned out to be delicious. I also got mochi and a pack of Japanese curry. Oishi!

Here is a photo of AmPanMan, which means “Bean Bread Man”. He is a Japanese superhero, and is friends with noneother than Meron Pan Chan (“melon bread girl”) who I believe accompanies him in this photo. AmPanMan and his friends (various bread products, you may have guessed) help out people in bed by offering their heads for eating. Really. And you ask me why I miss my Japanese life…
