Asameshimae!

The idiom of "Piece of cake" which means "pleasant and easy job" is usually translated "Asa-meshi-mae" in Japanese.  Asa means morning, meshi means meal and mae means before.

 

Asa (朝)= morning

Meshi(飯)=meal

Mae(前)=Before

 

So "asameshimae" literally means "just before breakfast" indicating such an easy job which you can do in a short time before breakfast.  So, for me, "Asameshimae" is making sushi.  I can enjoy not only making Sushi but aslo sharing it with members and friends.  Yesterday I made it and today I'll make it again. (I'm actually waiting for cooked rice for Sushi)
