We got up reasonably early (!!) and had hot ham and cheese pancake/burrito style things from 7-Eleven for breakfast as we waited for our first Shinkansen at Tokyo station. The trains are ever so fast! We ended up taking three local trains and the Shinkansen to get to Fujinomiya, but it was totally worth it. The steps were as follows! 1.

... broccoli and pork chops on the way home and set about on my attempt to make some mashed potatoes, broccoli and pork chops with onion gravy. Easy enough, right? Wrong. My gas stove is roughly 70 years old and, though the stoves themselves are actually pretty good, there are only two, and the grill cooks whatever is on top of it a great deal more thoroughly than whatever is underneath.
