HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC!! That's right, he is still 6... (a leap year baby). I am making him "all-you-can-eat sushi" tonight. The menu will be: miso soup, mirin soaked shiitake mushrooms, tempura, inari sushi, sushi rolls, and for dessert the mochi in the photo above. What the heck is mochi? Well, it's a dessert made of sweet, chewy rice flour and in this case the center is filled with sweet, mashed red beans. Just try it, it's good. I followed the recipe on Vegan YumYum.
