Happy New Year! 2018, year of the dog

I customarily blog about New Year’s food, although I’m a little tardy this year.

We had, of course, toshikoshi soba on New Year’s Eve to bridge the old year and the new. We went with a simple (and sticky) mix of okra, grated nagaimo (a sticky yam/potato), nori seaweed, nameko mushrooms, and green onions.

Soba!

On January 1st, we had osechi, lots of lucky food in the traditional box format. This year’s selection had Japanese, Chinese, and ‘Western’ style items.

And, we went to mochi-making. Very tasty, as per usual!
