Dongzi Festival falls on the first day of winter. Chinese celebrate it by eating "Tang Yuan" or glutinous rice balls. By eating the tang yuan, you are also a year older or wiser. *wink* They also cook an elaborate meal to celebrate it with family members.
These tang yuan were shaped by both my girls. It is great that now they are able to help me in the kitchen and doing some house chores. My eldest is interested in learning how to cook now, thus far, she can make her own ramen noodle with eggs and fried eggs. I will slowly teach her more, it's my way of imparting my cooking knowledge to the next generation. So that they will know what to do when they are in college.
Last but not least, HAPPY DONGZHI FESTIVAL to all who celebrated and also Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all my readers and family!
