The first time I ate zongzi was when I was 8 years old. My mother returned to Grandma Chengde’s house, took back the jujube and bamboo leaves, and wrapped the rice dumplings with rhubarb rice for us. I thought it tasted really delicious! When I grew up, I ate Jiangmi (glutinous rice) dumplings for the first time in Liaoyang. At that time, I walked out of school and worked for someone for the first time. At that time, the work was very hard. She often had night shifts. Because of her husband’s cheating, she often refused to buy food for us. It happened to be the Dragon Boat Festival. She packed a lot of rice dumplings for sale, and left a lot of dumplings for the workers to eat. Basically, they ate every day. For almost a week, many workers couldn’t eat, so they secretly threw them in the trash can, and I ate for a whole week, my colleagues were surprised, and I really like to eat, cool, soft, sweet, hahahaha ! That is the only beautiful memory of those hard working days! I don’t know, how are the sisters who worked together now? There is also the only boy-Zhang Fengyi (from Shenyang). After attending the sports school, how is it now? At that time you took care of me and liked me. At that time, you didn't confess, and I was stupid and didn't understand your heart. I wish you all a good life here. I keep the photos and miss you!
