Happy Valentine's day!
Valentine's day in Japan is very deferent from that of in Western countries.
It mainly means the girls prepare chocolates for their loved ones,
originally to the one whom they love the most.
But now it expands to families, friends, co-workers, etc, etc,...
So, Japanese girls get very busy in this time of the year.
Our house, of course with 3 girls,
turned into a small chocolate factory in the last couple of days!
Midori, our youngest daughter, was just a baby standing next to me cook
looking for a chance to stick her finger into a bowl for "tasting".
It feels like yesterday to me, but she is already big enough to make her
own candies, she still practices "finger tasting" of course ;-)
Fu, the middle, made standard chocolate chip cookies, yum yum!
The oldest, Hana's, are they lollipops?
Looks pretty complicated, because of her age?
She is 13 by the way.
