Today is the Mid-Autumn Festival, one of the major holidays in Chinese history. The moon is especially round and beautiful. I made the boys the lunch to go with this theme. You can read how the full moon and the rabbit is related to this tradition here.

In this boxCelebrating Mid-Autumn – Rice, broccoli, lotus roots, pork, and watermelon.

The night was clear and the moon was shining so bright! With a cup of hot tea and a piece of moon cake in hand, what better way to celebrate the mid-autumn festival.

“Today I am thankful for the mooncake…”
