Lovely Young Soba Guests;

(posted; Soba Noodle page)

On Saturday, one of my husband's ex-colleague brought her two friends 
to try making soba  (蕎麦打ち・ soba-uchi).
  
  Three lovely ladies♪  The Japanese towel for her head had pretty Japanese design. 
  And the wooden bowl from one tree trunk must have impressed them.



              How to use the rolling pin to widen the dough is the hardest part.
                  And cutting the dough with a big knife.
And we had soba lunch chatting together after they tried hard.  They smiled when I joked them that my blog might make foreign friends think my husband's hobby may be a common one for Japanese.

           Linking this post to, "MosaicMonday" and "Our World Tuesday",

Hope you are having or had a wonderful Sunday. 
Thank you very much for stopping by, See You Soon;

Dearest Miyako,
Your husband is quite a soba noodles chef! Well, I had to enlarge the photos to see that the dough is actually underneath a cutting board with protection side to hold the hand and with the huge knife you cut the dough below.
Happy times and hope they can manage at home to copy all they learned, provided they got all tools...
Hugs,
Mariette

Judging by the photos, I'd say the ladies had fun learning something new and of course it resulted in lunch too!
Please tell the ladies hello from Canada, thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

Hello Miyako!:) You all looked like you were having so much fun, and your photos are lovely. That is a pretty head scarf, and the young ladies look pretty wearing them. I have also admired your HUGE bowl in previous posts,...I should have realized it was made from one tree trunk, it's amazing!
Have a good week my friend.
Warm regards.

Wow, what a lovely day you all had making soba! Looks like the ladies had such a fun time.
It must taste extra good when you eat soba that you made yourself :-)
Have a wonderful new week, Miyako san!

Looks as if everybody had a wonderful time -- and how could they not! A chance to learn a new skill from an expert (or at least to begin to learn), plus wonderful hosts and teachers and a good meal. Sounds perfect to me.
