It's Tuesday. Time for some treasures. Show 'em and pack 'em up is my motto lately.
I may have mentioned we lived in Okinawa, Japan in the early 1980s. Our house was inside a base that had a back gate the led to the main shopping district of Futema. There was a warren of restaurants, grocery and greengrocer shops, fabric stores, hardware stores, and household goods. One of my favorite places sold teapots, dishes and anything ceramic. I got my still favorite teapot there. I would have bought the entire store if I had had the money and the room to store everything. I was fascinated by the weird sushi dishes and various sizes of tea cups and teapots.
One thing that I bought were these bowls. I would imagine that they were intended as soup bowls. I bought them for a Japanese dish that I know how to make called katsudon. It is a pork casserole. Each person is served the casserole in it's own bowl and the sauce is poured over it. I don't make katsudon very often, but when I do, I always use these little bowls to serve it.
