Please welcome Angelle Trieste!
1. What is your favorite thing about the colder weather?
Wow, this is pretty tough because I don’t like the cold in general. I’d have to say eating delicious oysters and blowfish. Oh, and eating Christmas cake. It’s a very traditional thing to do on Christmas in Japan. Since I love cake, I’ve adopted the custom. *grin*
2. What kind of books do you like to curl up with on a cold day?
I love books that have tropical settings. They transport me to a lovely location full of sun and breeze.
3. What is your favorite holiday food?
I didn’t grow up in traditional Americana, so my favorite food isn’t familiar to most of you. 🙂 I adore rice cake soup, which everyone in Korea eats on New Year’s Dat. My mom makes it every year, and if I happen to be in the States, I never refuse a big bowl of it. It’s fairly mild soup made with beef broth, beef, white rice cake medallions (unflavored), eggs, crumbled roasted dry seaweed and so on.
4. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Hero Material and I usually take a short day trip to Shimonoseki to sample blowfish. The place is famous for the delicacy…which is notorious for its deadliness. (Actually, it’s safe to eat so long as it’s prepared by a professional chef. I’m still alive, aren’t I? *wink*) You can get the fish thinly sliced into sashimi or turned into nigiri sushi. If you buy a lunch set, you can also get blowfish soup, friend blowfish and blowfish porridge with egg.
5. Be honest, how much to you decorate for the holidays?
Zero. I’m too lazy to even shop for decorations, much less put them up.
