Oh Oh~ Fun! Korean Cinnamon tea with Pine nuts! Oooh~ Mochiiiii. YUM!
I'm not a huge fan of bean paste, so I tend to eat around it. but the mochii itself tastes like solid marshmellows. :-)
My in-law (she is a distant cousain by European terms, but this family in texas is very very close - and viet families are just duty bound to care about the most distant of relatives as if they were siblings) sends us up a small box of goodies, including crysanthumu candy. But I should learn some traditions.
are you with family this year?
Yeah. Some people like the red bean paste, and others like it. I personally like it in a bun/mochi/ on top of my ice cream...not so much the candy. But mochi is yummyyyyy~ MMM...
Hahaha. Well, learning some traditions arn't so bad, if not...they're more interesting really.
And no. Not really. My mum doesn't care much for the Lunar New year. I was raised with it, so...I love it mostly for happy memories of the candy and the red envelopes. But the Korean churches here have a mini celebration. I merely go to the Buddhist Temple and celebrate it with close friends.
