2012!!! Can you believe it? It sounds so futuristic . . . yet it's today. Ho, time wen just fly by yah!
The food we had at our annual gathering was kinda the same as we've had before which I've already blogged about. Glenn made his awesome prime rib and chicken on the grill. Glenn also grilled the shrimp. I made fast-kine marinade for it with Yoshida sauce and sweet chili sauce. Wendell made nishime. Sweetie made her onolicious kinpira gobo and hasu. Cy and Diem brought an ono crab dish that I forgot to get a picture of. Aya!!
I made some edamame with butter, garlic, Yoshida sauce and lemon juice. I got all excited when I saw how the light was shining on the bowl. Glenn and Didi laughed at me 'cause when I ran to the bedroom to get a different lens, the light went away and I got all distraught. Glenn told me to be patient and the light would be back. And sure enough it came back.
Geri made her best-ever-in-the-history-of-mankind ozoni. Recipe can be found here.
Diem brought this jello-ish dessert she bought from Chinatown. Isn't it amaaaaazing??!!!
Daniel and Kenna brought this Chocolate Ganache Cake that they bought from Watanabe Bakery. It was soooo good. They said it was $22. I insisted that they take home the leftoevers, but now I regret it 'cause I wouldn't mind eating some right now . . . hahahaha!
Geri made a Baked An Mochi and I made a Baked Chocolate Mochi. I'll have recipes for you later.
And here are just a few more shots from the day.
Okay, I gotta go finish cleaning out my closet now. I started on Saturday and I only did about a fourth. I'm on vacation this week. I think it's gonna take me all week.
