Christmas and New Year are approaching again.
At least the shops are telling me so.
Spotted my first plastic display Kurisomasu Keiki in a convenience store the other day and the supermarkets and department stores are taking orders for traditional Japanese New Year food boxes.
Looks great! All the traditional fish paste, simmered vegetables, fish, drowned in sugar foods.
AND: Oyomesan....Oyomesan......Remember, remember LAST YEAR and the horrendous, horror of Five Hours Shopping and Cooking with Okaasan?
DON'T EVER DO THAT AGAIN! Right? OKAY?
One boxed food order coming right up.
