Lunar New Year Celebration
I can't believe it's already March. Time has flew!
This was our dinner that we had the night before Lunar New Year. It seemed a little smaller this year, since my big sister wasn't home and is married, so she celebrated with brother in-law.
Mom didn't buy new flowers this year for Lunar New Year since I bought her a small bouquet of flowers for Valentine's Day and Will bought me flowers too. Mom also put out plates of sweets, snacks, and lots of oranges,clementines, and etc to munch on.
This was our vegetarian Lunar New Year breakfast. I really enjoy this meal because it's so simple, yet tastes so good. The shrimp chips are irresistibly yummy!
We cheered to a new Lunar New Year with a little red wine.
These were some of the yau goks my mom, sister, and I made by hand. I will be including a recipe on the food blog in the next post. These were really good. Mom, sister, and I did a great job and a lot of people enjoyed it too.
I apologize for not blogging the last week or so, it's been utterly busy behind the screen with Lunar New Year celebrations, classes, work, and etc.
I was suppose to post a recipe for yau goks (traditional fried dumplings filled with sweet coconut, sesame seeds, and much more), but instead I'd like to share with you pictures of my Lunar New Year celebration at home.
