As the mercury rises, summer temperatures call you outside to enjoy the sun, family, food and fun. For all those July barbecues, picnics, watermelon and ice cream, there’s no better place to save than the commissary.
When it comes to public health and safety in military commissaries, the Department of Defense has unique standards to match the stores’ special patronage – the men and women serving in uniform and their families.
June is a time to honor fathers, the flag and the Army’s 244th birthday. The month is also jam-packed with hot savings events for commissary patrons such as Healthy Lifestyle Festivals and sales promotions to help them prepare for their July 4th celebrations and more.
Pets bring companionship, comfort and entertainment to service members and their families. That’s why the Defense Commissary Agency helps its patrons save more on products to keep their pets healthy and happy.
You may have heard and even sampled Okinawa’s signature so-called soul food, taco rice – south-of-the-boarder-seasoned ground beef atop rice with shredded cheese, lettuce and tomato. But, what about its cousin, “omu-taco rice”?
If you want to enjoy authentic Thai food on Okinawa, Siam in Nanjo City is a good choice.
Restaurant owner Yasushi Inoue and his Thai wife Nok have run the restaurant for 20 years with the goal of inspiring locals with their taste of Thailand dishes.
Summer in Japan gets scorching and steamy. Mid-summer Temperatures often reach 95 F or higher depending on the region. Along with beer, watermelon and soomen (cold udon noodle), kakigoori (shaved ice) is a popular cold food that cools us down during summer.
Unlike in South Korea or Bhutan, winter in Okinawa doesn’t take a lot of spicy hot-pot-type dishes to get through. That may be one reason why the subtropical island didn’t offer many spicy foods in the past.
