Homework for the Holiday

Posted by Picasa

Little Brother had just a little homework over the winter break. He had to cook something and he had to do this scroll of calligraphy. Calligraphy written at new year's is called kakizome. He had to write the phrase on the left. It means "future dream."

Here is what he cooked for his homework. He washed and cooked the rice. He made a salad. He cooked white fish with green pepper and leeks in cooking paper and foil. He cut a lemon into wedges. It doesn't look very appetizing in this picture! It actually looked better than this in person and it was delicious. The picture was taken at night and there wasn't enough light.

We use a lot of dishes, don't we?!
