Okay, so I allow myself to buy one moderately priced item every 4 months as a “good behavior reward.” And since I was such a bamf this summer, I got myself a mochi machine. A MOCHI MACHINE, Y’ALL. But then I realized no one except my Asian friends had any idea what I was raving about, so, this gifset was born. [x]
Making mochi by hand FUCKING SUCKS. I had to do it once in Japan and it was awful. Have you ever had to smash rice with a big fucking hammer for like… an hour?
