Strawberry Streusel Muffins

The rain here has been lingering for weeks! We may have a few hours of rainless, even sunny time to cheer up the mood a little bit, but then before you know it, the sky goes back to its old soul. All grey and gloomy. Annoying!

But kids are kind of hard to explain sometimes. This absurd wax-boiling activity was dangerous as kids could easily get burnt. It also left a big mess on the street considered how much work it involved to scrap the leftover wax from the ground. Being said that, this activity is one of my most vivid childhood memories of what Moon Festival used to be like in my home town!
