The Only Time of Year we Make Traditional Japanese Food…Sort of
A Japanese american take on traditional Japanese New Years food.
Our family is very americanized and we often do not cook japanese food on a normal basis. The only time we whip out the cookbooks and spend time to prepare authentic (not really) Japanese food is for New Years day. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed the food.
Inari and makizushi
Uh panko coated fried meat
Tri-layered Mochi (more of a hawaiian recipe)
Spam Musubi (not japanese, definitely Hawaiian)
Umm ground beef on lotus root wheels
The traditional array of japanese new years foods. I really don’t know what most of this stuff is except for the kamoboko (white thing), beans (center), and duh oranges.
Daikon salad (probably not traditional)
HAPPY NEW YEARS EVERYONE!
