Happy 2013!

1 01 2013

Spending the first couple of days at my parents’ as always.  I bought the osechi from one of my favorite restaurants.  Mother used to make it all but it’s too much for her these days.

She did make the ozoni with white miso as requested by me.

And also the datemaki (defined in the “osechi” link) which I think is the best in the world.

And there is the sake even at breakfast.  This one is from Niigata.

And some unusual red sake made from red rice, from Kobe, Hyogo to add a little color.

And this is from last night, New Year’s Eve, when we typically eat soba.
