So this weekend, on top of the usual fansub project stuffs, I think I'm going to take some time and start in on "the baking". It's December now, so it's time to start thinking cookies, cakes, squares, desserts... and I now have a proper Japanese dessert cookbook so I'll be looking at making some mochi, dango, or maybe o-shiruko. ^___^ I need to get something out of carrying back ~1kg of flour and sugar. :P
Those who have been on my journal since this time last year might remember this post and all the replies. I'm going to be going through some of those recipes again this year I think. ^___^ One of the things that has shown up on the shelves here is vanilla sugar, which will make ichi_san's friend's vanillekipferln recipe a bit easier. I wonder if Murchie's has vanilla sugar...? Shall look.
But yes, it's *that* time of year again, so it's time to start creating "the list"--the baking list that is. Have you started in on your list yet? ^___^
