My Little Brother Kazu wanted to come over to my place and make a Japanese pie.
I was skeptical. When he said red bean and green tea pie, I thought, that won’t work.
I was wrong, in a big way.
Look at me. What an idiot, right? I’m always acting foolish. Not like Kazu.
He’s graceful and calm and warm.
Plus, look at him. Man oh man.
He made green tea custard with his roommate Kanako.
It was really delicious.
We layered it on top of sweetened Japanese red beans.
Then we put whipped cream on top of that.
Kazu was sweet, and did the dishes too.
I’m going to be making this pie again, for sure. It will be a great summer pie.
That’s my ass crack. It has little to do with the narrative of this blog entry.
