One of the easiest ways I can show the girls Japanese traditions and culture is with food. I would be killing two birds with one stone on this.... showing them family recipes passed along from my Mom and losing weight. So our first really big feast was appropriately done on Chinese New Years. I spent the day in the kitchen with this kiddos running around salivating and very curious with what was going on. In future posts I will provide the recipes that I used and found that the kiddos really like. Here is a quick peek at our little feast on New Years....
Gyoza, sunumono, seaweed salad, chicken teryaki
Okay, now I am getting really hungry looking at this photo I think I will work on the first recipe post.... seaweed salad.
I am a stay at home mom looking to make the most of this adventure by trying my hand at photography, crafts, cooking, and teaching Japanese to the girls. Most importantly to make wonderful memories and bring back traditions with my three amazing daughters.
