This card is the essence of my childhood growing up as a biracial hapa in Southern California. Our meals included Japanese rice on the side of everything. And though our cabinet shelves were filled with chawan bowls and our drawers with chopsticks, we always seemed to be running out of clean dishwater due to their frequent use.

This delightfully clever card plays on the age-old phrase, "You're sugar, spice and everything nice," but with a nostalgic Japanese twist in celebration of our childhood dietary staples: tofu, gohan, ocha, edamame, tsukemono and shoyu.
