JustJenn's New Years Oshogatsu - 2013
New Year's Feast at JustJenn's House!

My friend JustJenn cooked, baked, and then cooked & baked some more! She hosts a great New Year's Oshogatsu feast on New Year's day. Fun times!

Here is JustJenn's post about it as well as the recipes. I'll just leave you with some photos so you can get jealous. I mean, enjoy the deliciousness with me.

Root beer pulled pork, guava jelly chicken wings and tamale pie... perhaps not enjoyed by our samurai ancestors in Japan, but us Japanese Americans put our own spin on things.

You had to save lots of room for dessert - homemade an mochi, brownie mochi, mochi bundt and broken glass bundt!

I brought a bundt, of course! And the mochi in the ozoni soup was from our annual mochi making day.

Thanks for a delicious New Years lunch, JustJenn. What a great way to start the year!

Your broken-glass bundt looks really good. I'm going to make it this weekend. Wish me luck! :)
