Mid Autum Festival-Moon Cakes

Tonight was the Mid Autumn Festival. We got an email during dinner from Mirah’s Chinese teacher that tonight was the night. We were excited to have a fun thing to do. So we finished up dinner, and headed to the Asian Market. Not before Mirah drew a quick picture of the moon and stars.


Off to the Market, and to the table of moon cakes!

It took the moon FOREVER to come out. It was 8:30 before we could see the moons shine coming over the mountains.

We started in on the moon cakes. We only got two, they were 6 bucks each! And NOT good.

They were made of a simple pastry crust with a thick Red Bean filling.

The other round one was an egg yolk filling. It was… not great.


We anticipated that the authentic cakes would be less good so we bought some pockys just in case.

We stood out on the lawn in the cold.
