Mung Bean Mochi…

A few days ago, I saw a friend Meighan’s photo of Mango Mochi that she made. I searched online for recipes and saw a bunch of recipes for Red Bean Mochi… which gave me an idea to use a Mung Bean filling (like in Hopia) instead of the Red Bean. So I set out to try to make my version of Mung Bean Mochi.

Knitted Tri-peak Cap…

I was amazed that I completed my third Knitted Tri-peak Cap in just a day. It’s a birthday gift for a friend and I wanted to get it done by the weekend.

Winter Greens sorted out and potted out…

The tray of winter greens that I planted back in November have grown and I can now tell what is what… (My great-niece tripped over them and mixed them all up.)

Mixed Up Winter Greens

I planted the Bok Choy Folia seedling into hanging pots in out front yard, since there is more light there. I’ll plant another batch in a few days for the backyard garden.

I also potted up the Broad Leaf Mustard Folia from the Jiffy Peat Pellets into a large pot (Solo drinking cup) to get them to grow a little bigger before planting them out.

Wish List: Hellebores (Lenten Rose)

Just added Hellebores (Lenten Rose) to my wish list. My Mom saw these in a garden magazine & asked me if they sold them here. I didn’t know.

Seventh Generation Laundry Detergent

Every time I’m at Raley’s, I have to check to see if they still have the detergent with my photo on the label.

  • 16:17 I want to make mochi and the recipe calls for wheat starch, but I can’t find any. Anyone know if I can substitute potato or corn starch? #
