Gong Hey Fatt Choy!

Posted by Picasa

We rang in the Year of the Ox with a Feast! Thanks to my aunt & grandmother who were with us this festive season. All the dishes have significance - everything had to be in tact. You wouldn't be believe how difficult it is to find a decent whole chicken with head & legs! I guess most North Americans don't like to look at their food whole. The menu of the night included:

Sweet & Sour Pork
Shitake Mushrooms
A whole Hainanese style chicken
Our family traditional "zai" (vegetable stew)
Braised pork knuckle
Spicy prawns
Sticky rice
Steamed fish


Happy Chinese New Year!
