Mooncake Festival and authentic Chinese Food

Another night of no cooking..

Eunice, a fellow chinese in Abilene, invited us over for dinner tonight and among the dishes that she prepared was some savoury glutinous rice and sweet pig ears...Cindy brought some turkey lasagna to "balance" the menu... *smiles*

The folks back home are celebrating Mooncake Festival though, with all its legends and good food ( read Here ) and children with their lanterns, but over here, all I can find to celebrate right now is National Dog Week... oh well, we love our dogs and celebrate them EVERY day.

Abilene hosted the West Texas Fair and Rodeo last week and it was so much fun..will be posting pictures in a few days...there's one of me eating a turkey leg that was almost as big as my head...*laugh* Is that a tall Texas tale? Well, we'll just have to wait for the pictures to see.

We're in the harvest festival season for most of the native american tribes in the area. This is the only time of the year that you can purchase a food item called "kneel-down bread" It's made from corn and it's delicious.

I love this time of year. New Mexico is rich in culture and we'll use any opportunity to celebrate.

Asi es Nuevo Mexico! :P

I still have to try these mooncakes that I hear so much about. From what I have gathered, people's opinions on them are quite divided. Some really love it and some think it's crap. Hmm...I hope they're good.
