Being sick is never fun, but at least at home it's simple. I rock up to Tesco, buy own brand meds, and dose myself.

... included tempura, edamame, French fries, fried chicken and desserts. At the end of the meal, the empty plates are counted. A fun, fast, cheap and yummy sushi dinner. We paid about $22 to pig out. An interesting trend is the Japanese do a lot of cooking for themselves at restaurants. So far we've grilled our own meat at the Korean BBQ. We've grilled fish and veggies at a seafood restaurant. We cooked a cabbage, ...
