New Year Wishes!

Happy New Year to all of you! Wherever you are, I hope you had a great time with your family and friends and I wish you all the best for 2014!
I am currently in Japan, spending time with my grand-ma. In Japan, new year (oshōgatsu) is very important and we celebrate it with special food called “osechi”. I struggled but managed to prepare something to make my grand-ma happy! Here are some pictures of what we had yesterday and this morning!

toshikoshi soba


This is “toshikoshi soba”. This is a special dish we eat on the last day of the year. We ate it with “kaki age”, it’s a tempura with shrimp and vegetables.


OsechiThis is “osechi”


Ozoni soupThis is “ozoni” – it was my favorite food when I was a kid and this year is the first time I made it on my own. It tasted almost as good as the one my mother used to make! *very proud*
