The first day of the year !
This is the traditional set of Japanese cuisine for the beginning of the year. Different from current situation, almost no shop opened at the end and the beginning of the year. On top of that, to give the house wives a enough rest at the time, every household made their own year-end meal set after cleaning up their houses.
fried burdock, carrot and lotus root,
crab cake, boiled black beans and pickled radish and carrot.
Above are sea eel cake, herring roe, boiled small fish and sweet chestnut.
Before having breakfast on January first, the family members do greeting each other and eat this soup called "zouni"which means mix soup.
The Belgian chocolate followed the break fast this year.
Have a nice weekend !
