Delectable Pumpkin

Friday I was taken to a new restaurant where we had this pumpkin. It seemed to be baked and coated with sugar. It was scrumptious, though we wondered if it would be even better with nutmeg, cloves, and sugar.

Mooncakes

Today we’re celebrating the Mid-Autumn festival and so that means people exchange and eat mooncakes. Most aren’t my cup of tea, but I did like the one’s filled with nuts and fruit. Then I learned that one mooncake might contain 1000 calories! No more mooncakes for me. They aren’t that good.

Mooncakes

Today is Mid-Autumn Festival in China and the common gift is mooncakes. Above you see the ones my school gave me. Throughout the neighborhood there are vendors selling these cakes, which I’ve learned can be used as a secondary currency creating problems of corruption.

I don’t like the one’s with bean paste, but the nut-filled ones are okay. The trick for me is to eat about a quarter of a cake a day. They’re pretty heavy and the sweetness can get excessive.
