Today was the Laba Festival, a traditional festival in China that celebrates the new harvest. On this day you’re suppose to eat congee (a porridge like substance), which I really don’t enjoy. So instead our ayi made a huge pile of steamed baozi filled with pork and vegetables. She then steamed some “hua juan” which are twisted rolls made of flour and water. Their name means “twisted flower”, as they look like folded flower petals.
