Food Trip Friday--New Year Festives

We celebrated our New Year at my PIL's home and made all the necessary preparations just like the other year, it's a tradition here in Japan to clean the house ( year-end cleaning for new beginnings) , decorating bamboo ornaments, osechi ryori ( this time we prepared of what's available inside the fridge ), setting up an altar with kagamimochi ( round rice cakes), sake and some other specialties and since it's holiday in Japan, all of our New Year festives were bought so we don't have to cook and to have less hassles in the kitchen. I only prepared the Japanese style Caprese ( coz my husband ain't a fan of sushi's and seafoods ) and the osechi ryori was prepared by my 2 SIL--we had so much fun in the kitchen while our husband were tending to our kids^_^

Clarissa - that is a spectacular food-fest for the senses!!! Nabusog ang mata ko sa kakatingin at naglalaway ako sa takam. I suddenly remember the good times I had when I was in Japan - mostly food tripping din kasi ako. hihihi. I hope to go back there someday and when I do, pupuntahan kita! :D

Have a great weekend.
