Contest! Contest! Hooray! (and yes, this is entitled NUMBER 1! I hope to have a contest for a copy of TJOC--for those of you that don't have a copy--later in the year).

I know I picked up some readers with my Japan exploits--how would you like to have a "taste" of Japan? I carried back plenty of cool Japanese snacks and want to send you some! So if you want to try Japanese snacks, here's what you have to do:

1. You will get ONE entry for leaving a comment on this page. You must also email me your name and address at

2. Because I would like people to actually READ the blog, you will get ONE additional entry for leaving a comment on a blog entry OTHER than this one. That's two entries! But make sure you email me your name and address.

3. This contest starts today (August 25th) and ends in one month (September 25th).

There will be at least 1 prize, but if lots of people enter, there will be multiple prizes :) The winner will be chosen by a random number generator.

If you have any questions, let me know! I will update this page as I need to...(hopefully, I won't need to).

Now back to my regular TJOC programming...


  1. Hey Jessica, welcome back! A suitcase full of snacks, eh? Sign me up. :-)

    cheers and have fun reaclimating!

  2. When my wife and I took our trip to Japan (was it really three years ago?!?) we brought back a suitcase full of snacks, too. They're all gone, and I'm jonesing for more. Bring 'em on.

  3. Oh, fun prize!!! I'm definitely up for this one!

  4. Great that you are back and cooking and congrats on the engagement! I figure I'll write a quick post because I am a sucker for exotic treats :)

I'm really sorry, I hate comment moderation, but I've been getting annoying Japanese spam messages lately so...comment moderation has started.
