Hit me with your best shot
Meanwhile, New Year festivities are in full swing around here, and that means mochi. We went to watch mochi pounding today and goddam there is nothing better than freshly made mochi. Yum. They came with all the accoutrements too. Red bean, nori, soy sauce+sugar, kinako+sugar and some weird ass radish mix thing that was pretty darn tasty. The Kid preferred his plain.
I will be cooking all day tomorrow and all Monday. Some of the things we plan on eating: Mochi (of course), Ozoni, chicken wings, flank steak, tazukuri (blech), sushi, lucky black beans, salt & pepper shrimp, tofu and noodles. I also plan on making little green-tea cakes. We'll see how that goes. Whew. I better get crackin'.
