Winter Solstice And Gingerbread House

BACK TO SACRAMENTO.... for Christmas celebration!

Few days before Christmas, we were back in Sacramento, getting ready for the festive season again.  Few days before Christmas, it is Winter Solstice, it si on the 22 December and we remember this day by boiling some glutinous balls with ginger syrup and palm sugar.

We did it the easy way...
Bought a packet of these glutinous rice balls with sesame and peanut fillings....
Yes, they were very nice eaten with the ginger and palm sugar syrup....

And then the younger adults tried doing a ginger bread house.....
Looks easy but they had a difficult task making them stick properly....
As illustrated on the box....
And this turned out instead....
LOL....
Looks easy....
or not??
Two pairs of hands.... 
Must be dainty enough....
Anyway, they did a good job....
Thumbs up for them...
First time trying...
Better than me...
I am just an observer to give them the thumbs up!

  1. Lovely gingerbread house. I've seen huge ones at some hotels. I heard that those frozen glutinous rice balls were very nice - will buy those to try next year.
