Little gooey delights!
So, we made mochi. Only because the store bought ones cost much more than it's worth. Hehe. This is really nice - maybe a little sticky, but it's nice that way!

Now just drop your fingers into some potato starch, grab a tablespoon or so of the mixture and dunk it into more potato starch - or else. Let's just say my camera has some mochi on it right now...and that's why there's no photos...I guess we didn't use enough potato starch...or my hands are too hot?
Anyways, stretch out the mochi and then tip a teaspoon or so amount of filling in it. Then just wrap the filling up with the mochi, pressing the edges together (it'll stick by itself). Gently shape it to a round ball.
Tada! These things last for a few days, depending on what the filling is. Our red bean mochi lasted for a few days in a airtight container, but then we ate it all... o vo When the mochi contains other fillings, such as fresh strawberries (yes, you can do that...), it's probably better to refrigerated the mochi, and eat it quickly. You could also simply freeze it, and defrost it when you want to eat it.
