Everyone is having christmas mood, shopping for christmas gifts. However, don't foget to celebrate 东至 (the last chinese festival in a year) which falls 3 days earlier than the merry christmas, 22 of December.

Every year, i will buy the ready-made glutinuos dough (pink/ yellow/ white)and the peanut powder from the grocery shop. Just need to boil the ginger soup, and roll the ready dough. Simple and express for working mom.
