When we gave up on the finding the moon ~ Eddie said it was "in China!" ~ we all went inside to try our homemade moon cookies/I mean "cakes" . Anthony said the strawberry preserve with coconut was real good (I thought they were ok), Eddie wouldn't touch them and opted for the marshmallow pies, Mia kept putting the mooncake up to her mouth and says loudly "Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm", but wouldn't eat it ?! Daddy thought they were ok too. Penny loved them :)
I love how her little tongue is sticking out :)
I was really looking forward to trying the ones with the chocolate chips inside, but they were VERY hard and a bit burnt - Next year, I'll try another recipe we have and I will try to find a mooncake mold, so they are a bit more cake-like.
I did say a prayer for Mia's birthparents
and I know they were thinking of her too . . .
