I’m not sure there are many Chinese members on PF but the Mid Autumn Festival is a major Chinese holiday. I thought it was neat to share this. It is kinda equivalent to thanksgiving in late September for most Asian culture. It is all about the cooking and the munchies. You are suppose to eat moon cake while watching for a full moon.




Here is an article of a better explanation:

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday - it's all about family and food............so I know I would enjoy Mid Autumn Festival. I hope you save me a seat at your feast - everything looks delicious.

I sure will! I am a dumpling fanatic. I truly believe I make better dumpling than some of the natives. It is a skill I’ve honed since I was 4 basically as soon as I could grab a rolling pin.

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

Oh, that looks absolutely delicious! I would much prefer your meal vs. the traditional American T-giving dinner.

P.S. Your mom's kitchen is gorgeous!

WOW, that looks too good to be true. Wish I didn't look at it. I just spent an hour prepping a tradition pot roast because I had onions, potatoes and carrots harvested from my garden, and now I want your spread.

As far as the traditional Thanksgiving spread, I'm a master at cooking that and love it. Matter of fact, I rarely actually have turkey and all the trimmings at Thanksgiving, I'm usually working that day and don't have family close to share the holiday. Basically, if I want a turkey, I get a turkey and do it up regardless of time of year. The only traditional fall foods I cook in the fall are out of my garden because that is when they are ripe.

Anyone who wants a better than pumpkin pie recipe, use blue hubbard squash. That is what I grew this year instead of my pumpkins and all I can say is wow in a pie. A few changes in the recipe, but so worth it.

'Boards' mean very little to me. I'm gonna guess that most of us visit the forum thru the New Posts link... or Today's Posts. So I never have a clue what Board the OP was posted to.

At this time, Pagans would be wishing you a Blessed Mabon. :)

WAHHHH! Why hasn't somebody invented a transporter yet? I NEED your dumplings...........YUM!
I am Sicilian and food and family and more food is also a thing with us! Thanksgiving is not only a traditional turkey but also many things from our culture like Arancini Balls, Octopus in garlic, oil and wine vinegar, Veal Braciola, and Sfincione (Sicilian pizza) cooking for family get togethers starts days before the event!! LOL!

That looks like a wonderful family feast! I think perhaps the thing I miss most since my parents died is the family meals, prepared together with love and laughter, and eaten together with more talk, and more laughter, and more love. At one point my mother was coordinating multi course meals for one vegetarian daughter, one sea food allergic daughter, one allium intolerant daughter, and husband and grandchildren whose food preferences changed on an almost daily basis. She would juggle colour coded chopping boards, serving bowls labelled with coloured flags, sundry knives, and a large gin and tonic. It is lovely to see family feasting that is obviously just as exuberant as ours was!

Every year around autumn Disney’s Epcot has an International food and wine festival. I believe it starts only in a few days on Sept 27th! Usually Epcot has only the major countries setup in the park like France, UK, Italy, Mexico, Canada, Morocco, Japan and China but during this festival they have a wider choice with smaller countries such as Argentina, Poland, Irish, Greece, Belgium, South Africa, Australian, New Zealand...etc. it is really fun! Maybe I will take Lucky there if it doesn’t get too hot to practice public access.
