Tomorrow is Mid-Autumn Festival! To celebrate, mooncakes are must-have. I have bought some traditional and snowskin mooncakes a few weeks ago. Bryan and I love the snowskin mooncakes so much that we finished 12 within 2 weeks. To learn more about mooncakes, watch this video. It is very informative. It is amazing how many kinds of mooncakes are out there. I have never heard or seen some of them before.
I have been a bit busy recently. Doing some travel planning, going to dentists, helping my sister move… etc. So, no new recipe this week. I promise that I will have one next week.
Meanwhile, enjoy your mooncakes and have a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

Lantern Picture from Last Year
Mid-Autumn Festival is my favorite holiday! This is the day that Chinese gather with families and friends to enjoy a great meal and some good time together. After dinner, the adults would sit around to talk and eat some mooncakes and fruits under the big bright full moon. The kids would play with their friends and show off their beautiful lanterns. And, all kids look forward to getting a brand new lantern every year. When I was a kid, I loved to play games with friends and eat some delicious mooncakes.
Other than that, mid-autumn festival is also my birthday on the Chinese calendar. It is a double meaning day for me. Even through I am very far away from my home town and family, I would continue to keep the tradition with me and share with Bryan. Tonight, Bryan and I will go for a short walk with a lantern, enjoy the bright full moon, and eat some mooncakes.
Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! Enjoy the beautiful full moon with your family and friends!
