I forgot that I had taken these moon cake pictures last year and since it's Mid-Autumn Moon Festival time again, figured I might as well share.
I was buying groceries at Asia Supermarket - Alhambra when I saw this gaily-wrapped piggy mooncake. Made a perfect gift for Gourmet Pigs. (Shhh! It was only $2.49.)
I think it was filled with lotus paste? I didn't eat it so I can't remember.
I much prefer the seed and nut-filled ones. The one below is more traditionally-shaped. Can you believe it's homemade?!
Ha! Not made by me. One of my students' dad made it and gifted me with several of them.
My mom does make her own dried fruit and nut mooncakes though. I just haven't learned how yet.
1 year ago today, stinky tofu, squid lips, and duck tongues at Indian Restaurant - San Gabriel.
2 years ago today, Farfalle with Oven-Dried Tomatoes, Mushrooms, and Corn.
3 years ago today, Lil' sis abandoned me :( and why we're such daddy's girls.
