Happy Spring Moon – Cranberry and Almond Mexican Bread

Today, I continue to make friends with Mexican bread. Under the sweet Mexican sauce, I luxuriantly bury a layer of broken almonds and cranberries, sweet and sour, crispy. The delicious pulp always gives people more satisfaction. When you pick up the bun, it feels like a full moon. Even the concave and convex feeling of the lunar surface. Moon appreciation does not necessarily mean Mid-Autumn Festival. Moon appreciation does not necessarily mean eating moon cakes. Occasionally, when you are hungry late at night, it is also excellent to have a bread to see the moon. Recently, the weather in Zhuhai is clear, after the fifteenth lunar calendar, the Qingming has passed again. After the full moon, the time for the moon to rise is getting later and later, and gradually “thin” up. Tonight, I went out for a run, a waning convex moon, perhaps influenced by the red moon eclipse of the previous two days, the moon shines slightly purple copper and rises clearly. Behind the flowering branches, rising on the dark top of the mountain… Often so easily touched by the natural scene, there will be a sense of instant happiness.
