Obama dropped his bowl of Matcha Ice CreamAs anyone who has watched the news or picked up a newspaper (or the internet equivalent) in the past week could tell you, President Obama is spending the week in a diplomatic tour of Asia in an effort to pursue greater cooperation with countries across Asia.

In case you want to remember it yourself for dessert tonight, here’s a link to our recipe!
