It's that time of year in Japan for us to eat our Nanakusakayu which I've posted about previously.
I've always bought the o-kayu (rice porridge) pre-made in ready to boil bags, but this year forgot to buy some, so I ended up making it in my rice cooker.
I made 2 cups of rice, not realizing that 2 cups makes a LOT...sigh.
Eating Nanakusakyu not only is a way for the Japanese to hope for a healthy year, but it is also a good way to ease your stomach after eating rich foods during the New Year holidays.
Most of the Nanakusa was eaten today, but there is still lots of o-kayu. Guess we'll be having a variation of this for the next couple of breakfasts.
Have a nice week!
