Yuan Xiao Festival 元宵节

The 15th day of the first lunar month marks the end of the Chinese New Year festivities. Also known as Chinese Valentine's Day, everyone traditionally eats tangyuan or rice glutinous balls on this day. I remember when my grandma was alive, she made this dish from scratch for the whole family to enjoy. After she passed away, we get the frozen versions from the supermarket as it's more convenient. This year we have Taiwanese Strawberry Ice Cream mochi, that the kids love.
