Happy Birthday Mom!

Its been relatively nice out for a week now, and that’s a great thing.  
My mom’s yearly potted garden has grown, and the sun is finally letting these babies grow!

The most prized plant we have growing is the shiso plant.  It also comes in green, which is delicious with rice and soy sauce, as well as fried tempora.  The purple shiso makes the best juice!  My mom clips the leaves, boils it, adds sugar, and lets it sit to cool, then a tiny bit of citric acid is added, which turns the juice a bright pink color.  It’s so good!
