Sweet Seasons/March 2006 - Cherry Blossom -



I know. I’ve been lazy about posting. There’s another post that is still in progress. And I almost forgot about this monthly project. But see? At least I took this photo. ;P

This is a type of rice cake called habutae mochi, and the petals represent, of course, cherry blossom.



I’ll write more about habutae mochi sometime soon. Sorry, I’m going to be extremely busy this week…
For now, please enjoy this photo!

I just recently tried some mochi for the first time. Little pink and white ones. They were OH so yummy.

Obachan, I hope you're getting used to working in the new restaurant. I knew you're interested in kaiseki and hopefully you can enjoy more than before. Look forward to hearing about it :)

The habutae mochi is just beautiful!

Hi rosa, helen, gustad, fiordizucca, nerissa, foodcrazee, purplecupcake and keiko,

Thanks for your comments. I really wish I could send you this habutae mochi. It’s sooooooo good. Soft and silky. Mmmmm….
I guess this wagashi represents cherry blossom petals on "tsukubai."
