Trailer Trad Raleigh: Lost in the Asian Supermarket

Recently, my daughter wanted to make a recipe to share with her class. The recipe was for traditional desserts made for the Japanese Tanabata and Chinese Qixi festivals. This required a trip to a very large Asian supermarket to load up on weird, awesome stuff. The market is called A & C Supermarket and it was really cool. It's basically identical to a 1970's era supermarket but filled with nothing but wild, unusual stuff. The store was clean, the people were friendly, and the prices were pretty cheap overall.

Lil' Bean took the rice flour and red bean paste, etc. from the market and made these awesome traditional Japanese cookies/cakes. They looked exactly like little pumpkins!
