22 Dec 13 (Sun) - Rice Balls and Beef Noodle

Today marks the Arrival of Winter and so it is called the Dōngzhì Festival or Winter Solstice Festival. It usually falls three days before Christmas Day. One of the traditional activities is to make and eat tangyuan or rice balls. So to celebrate, I made rice balls in ginger soup. And to reward myself for the work done, I cooked beef noodle using the last packet of the beef powder I bought from Korea last year. Happy 冬至 everyone!

Some ingredients...

... that were used to make into these colorful balls...  

... which were then cooked in ginger soup to become tangyuan!

After the making and cooking of Tangyuan, rewarded myself with one of my comfort food, beef noodle.

And finally, I'm getting into the mood for Christmas!
