I recently had the chance to celebrate the Moon Festival, with the help of VH sauces. Moon Festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, is one of the most celebratedholidays in the Chinese calendar. Moon Festival was on September 12th this year and on this date, families across the world will gather with brightly-lit Chinese lanterns to share delicious Chinese cuisine with one another.
I honestly did not know about the Moon Festival, so it was an education for me and my family. We were looking forward to celebrating, especially with great food! Unfortunately, this Mommy developed pneumonia and couldn’t plan a big celebration, but I did do a family meal to celebrate the Moon Festival. That’s the great thing about VH sauces, you can make a great meal without a lot of work!
With help from VH, you can introduce quick, delicious and flavourful meal solutions that are sure to be crowd-pleasers during Moon Festival. Browse the VH Sauces website for some tasty recipes such as Hoisin Chicken Salad and Spicy Beef and Red Pepper Stir Fry for some Moon Festivalinspiration.
Chicken is always a popular choice in my house, and we love the Sweet Thai Chili Sauce. It is actually a dipping sauce, which I do use it for as well, but I like it for cooking. It gives your chicken a great colour so it looks pretty on the plate, and it is delicious. The kids love it, and I can put some Spicy Thai Chili Sauce on the side for my husband and I, since we like things with a little bite.
I steamed some rice and green beans to have with our chicken and we enjoyed our mini Moon Festival Celebration. It was a delicious and easy to make meal!
My oldest son is away at college and couldn’t be home for our Moon Festival supper, so I sent him some coupons for VH Steamers. They are perfect for him because he has a fridge and a microwave in his dorm room, and he can have a delicious and healthy meal! They are also very budget friendly for college students or to take to work in your lunch…or for a quick supper on a busy night!
