Because I am supposed to be in mourning period still for my father's death, I did not celebrate new year this time. It is difficult since I love all kinds of new year thing including the decoration on the door.
If you check my last year's new year food, you can see what I usually eat for new year.
So, I didn't prepare much this year, still wanted to have a few seasonal food.... This is one example. Grilled Mochi ( rice cake ) . The right is sugar ( about 1 tea spoon ) and 2 tea spoons of soy sauce. This bit salty bit sweet sauce, I love ! You dip the rice cake into the sauce. One of Winter food.
