Rice Cace "Mocji" making from last year;

*Rice Cace "Moci" making from last year and Zoni*
In Japan, we make rice cake to prepare new year and eat them a lot around year-end and new-year season. Kind of annual event that rice-cake (mochi,) lover husband invite our friends and make them together. "mochi-tsuki, 餅つき" topic again from last year.

Recent capture of Redstart both Male and female from the tree in front of my house.
Happy to be able to take both of them♪

Thank you very much for stopping by ;

  6. It's great to have around the beginning of the year traditions!
    On New Year's Day we had our Dutch custom, which my hubby made: Dutch apple doughnuts. They are fried in hot oil, so it would be difficult to share making them with others. But we we our children and grand children drove one and a half hour to come and happily eat them with powdered sugar on top:)
    These birds are so beautiful, Miyako! A great beginning for All Seasons in January, Jesh

  15. As reported by Stanford Medical, It's really the SINGLE reason women in this country live 10 years more and weigh 42 lbs less than us.

    (And by the way, it is not related to genetics or some secret diet and EVERYTHING around "HOW" they are eating.)

    BTW, I said "HOW", and not "WHAT"...
