C-B-Day!! **



Today is my Christmas baking day. I finally finished all the cookie-baking and now I'm ready for some icing work.

*****
Pim suggested that we give one last push for the Menu for Hope II campaign. Sorry I’m late again, but we still have more than half a day (well, depends on where you live) right? Dear readers, the deadline is coming closer. This campaign will end at 12am PST on Dec. 24th. Do visit Pim’s site and join this heartwarming campaign, if you haven't done so yet. She did a great work posting the entire menu in pictures, so don’t miss it!! :D

Just to give you a better idea of what I’m offering: a bottle of dried and ground yuzu rind and a small bag of instant sweet bean paste (powder)….





This photo shows the dried yuzu rind sprinkled on udon noodles. Too bad you can't smell this. (The darker yellow bits on wakame kelp are the yuzu rind. The brighter yellow thing is egg.) Hope this stimulates your appetite and make you head for the Menu for Hope II site. ;)
* Of course I'm offering a new, unopened bottle of yuzu rind.

OK. Now I’m going into the kitchen where a bunch of faceless gingerbread people are waiting for me! :D
