New Year’s Day/元旦

Japanese Food

Today is December 29th, but I had some osechi for supper tonight. The reason for this is that I have to be away from home for a few days to visit my parents, leaving my wife and children at home.
Osechi is a generic term for any special food for New Year. We had kamaboko (fish cake) and kuromame (lit. black beans).

I also had this special sake, which contains gold foil.
