Tet (Lunar new year) was on a Thursday so naturally the festivities were planned for Saturday. It was a long day because Jacob had a robotics tournament all morning (I'll post about that soon). Then my parents had a get together for my side of the family in the afternoon. And then at night we got together at Lynn's grandparents' house for Tet with the in-laws. Oh, and Jacob caught the bug that Tyson had earlier in the week so he was overly tired (and whiny) by the end of the day. And now, the sickness has spread to Lynn and me. Dammit.

The taste was there, it was good. And at least it rose, unlike my first attempt. But look at the first picture and the raisin-less top. They ended up sinking to the bottom. Oops. And the tops had a slight, crispy crust, which were very unlike grandma's but I liked it this way. I think I'm really close to getting this down.
