Tristan’s Full Moon Celebration

Something different for a change, my first try at cooking cannelloni!

I tried a very basic spinach and ricotta cannelloni recipe, it wasn’t too difficult but the squeezing of the filling into the cannelloni tubes was a little troublesome.

I actually quite enjoyed this even though I think I was bit heavy on the tomato passata, next time I will be more light handed and perhaps try a more complex recipe with more procedures.

When you see red hard boiled eggs, it means a baby has reached full moon (30 days). Tristan is officially a month old and Jo was finally free from confinement.

We celebrated baby’s full moon the best way we know how, by eating and cooking lots! This is nasi kunyit, turmeric glutinous rice which is apparently a full moon dish, to be had with curry chicken and beef rendang.

Traditional full moon goodies, ang koo kuih (ree tortoise cakes), glutinous rice cakes filled with sweet mung bean filling. I never used to like these much when they were plentiful in Kuching, but now that we seldom get to eat them, it’s become a novelty and I know the guests enjoyed them.

Long lines of siu yuk which unfortunately were rather cold by the time the guests arrived.

Baby’s full moon cake which was a black forest cake.

Thank you to all the aunties and uncles who showered baby with lots of presents and cuddles. He was very happy that day being the center of attention.

Baby Tristan is growing cuter by the day! This is his ‘what are you looking at?’ expression 🙂 Happy Full Moon baby Tristan, may you grow up to be a healthy and happy little boy!
