Winter Solstice Festival

Today is the annual Dongzhi or Winter Solstice Festival. Yeah, it is the time of the year to indulge in glutinous rice balls or 'Tang Yuen' again. I love those with peanuts and black sesame fillings and also the ones made by my aunt which are coated with thick sugar syrup and chopped peanuts....Oooo, so yummy and I really miss them now! I will be making some later and lets hope my first attempt in making 'tang yuen' will be a successful one. ;) Hopefully I can get Sharlene to help me roll the 'tang yuen' and I am sure my little helper will enjoy playing with them...haha.

Here I wish everyone a very Happy Dongzhi. :)

Happy Belated Winter Solstice.
So how is your "tang Yuen"? Sure nice ya.
- I never try tang yuan with fillings, coz my mom always make the tang yuan without fillings.
