So. Still feeling homesick, and because one of my friends at The Gathering (every Wednesday group that I go to) loves coconut, I decided to make coconut mochi for the potluck. I tried a new recipe; usually I make butter mochi and sometimes sprinkle coconut on top. But this recipe called for coconut milk instead of evaporated milk and I decided to try it.
The taste was ʻono, though it came out more chewy than usual, and much stickier and harder to cut than usual. I think I like the butter mochi recipe mo betta.
Still yet. Most of my friends liked it, though mochi is a whole new experience for them. My mission, which I have accepted, is to keep introducing my mainland friends to onolicious local kine grindz.
