I made this lunch for Ayato, who is my friend Mayumi’s 12 year old son. He was very interested in seeing the Statue of Liberty. I made this lunch on the day that we visited Niagara Falls. Regrettably while in NYC, Ayato was unable to see the Statue of Liberty since he was sick. He and his Grandma stayed in the hotel room while Mayumi, her daughter Anna and I toured NYC.
