Happy New Year 2010

I'm writing my post finally! I hope everyone is doing fine.

My darling and I came back from Kyoto on 12/31. We had a lot of yummy foods there!!! I hope I can post them later.

Anyway, new year's holidays are passing very fast! We have only 2 days left until the first day of work...

As usual, I cooked new year's food (osechi ryori). This year, I used ingredients which my mom bought at Nishiki Ichiba: famous shopping streets in Kyoto.

I cooked white miso zoni (a Japanese new year's soup containing mochi rice cakes) along with it. Believe it or not, mochi rice cake in this zoni tastes nice if you dip it into kinako (soybean flour with sugar). I saw this on TV and tried it and was great!

I wish you a full of health and lots of smile throughout the year 2010 :D

Talk to you later!
