A landmark day, today was the first day I went *inside* Rabbit Moon・兎月 since early in the year. Since early spring they had been operating with a take-out window which was lovely and worked very well but it was so nice to go inside again. I got a chestnut paste filled sweet that was rich and fluffy and perfect.
Incredibly enough, it’s the end of September, already! The weather has cooled enough to be manageable but its still quite hot. There have been maybe 2-3 light sweater days which always makes you try to change habits too soon. The fall snacks are definitely here and I as well am here to support them. This kurikinton・栗きんとん from Kichi Zoh was a perfect autumn treat, with sweet chestnut paste placed around smooth red bean paste. This is a really popular one so I’m sure it won’t be my last.
