    Spiced Wafers, a Philly fall staple

    They sound great, but going by @Anna N's found recipe, I'm wondering why they are seasonal? It seems to me all the ingredients have year-round availability. No?

    Sorry, I can't help you with suggestions, but I've never seen anything other than waxy potatoes in SE Asia, more's the pity.

    Moon Cakes

    One type of mooncake I've seen on sale this year, but not before are these "Olive Mooncakes". Note: The "olives" in question are Chinese olives (Canarium album) and not in any way related to what you and I think of as olives.Those in the first image are regular size; i.e approx 4" in diameter. They also offer a larger size (7" dia.) or you can have a mixed box. Of course, you'll need something to wash the cakes down with and what goes better with olives than olives? Olive juice soft drink.

    Moon Cakes

    With mid-autumn looming (September 24th), all the stores here are rammed with mooncakes. And, of course, Starbucks gets in on the madness.

    Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    It is traditional to cook and eat squid with snow peas round these parts. Today, I did just that but pimped them up with some bacon. Additional ingredients chilli, scallion, garlic, Shaoxing wine. Simple.

    I made some Rou Jia Mo bread for later use, but purloined one for breakfast bacon sandwich.

    Favorite Food Quotes

    I'm guessing your uncle wasn't Chinese, but that is a very Chinese sentiment. All the serving dishes and bowls being empty would reduce the host to total loss of face. The dark side of that is the huge amount of food waste I see here, although, to be fair there is a big doggy bag culture in restaurants and at home. Recently with more city dwelling people having fridges, uneaten lunch will turn up at dinner etc. Out in the countryside, it is normal to cook slightly too much, especially when entertaining.The lack of refrigeration here in the countryside tropics rules out recycling, but the pigs have smiles on their faces (which we eat in winter).

    Food funnies

    I don't know if any of these are specifically centipedes, but bug eating is a not uncommon street food practice round here and the bugs are indeed skewered then either fried or grilled.
