Gong Hei Fat Choy

The Year of the Rabbit is here, and for the first time ever, we have pulled out all of the stops in celebrating the New Year. Our tardy New Year's letter conveniently became a timely Chinese New Year's letter, which highlights the events of 2010 for our family. For those who have seen this before, note that this is an updated version - we had completely forgotten about an important event for Kevin! (thanks, Justin Wheeler) Let us know in the comments if you can identify what that is.

As for our dinner, we had a 5-course meal:
  • Spring rolls with Thai chili sauce
  • Wintermelon soup with pork & Chinese mushrooms
  • Braised 5-spice chicken gizzards
  • Broiled croaker with ginger and scallions
  • Peanut-filled dumplings in a light syrup
Not the most traditional meal for Chinese New Year, but it was delicious!

I'd just like to say before all of the "yucky!" comments pour in: It was delicious

Which was more of a trial the illness or the potty training?

Happy New Year! Our neighbours gave us dumplings, so we also celebrated. Your meal looks fun and yummy -I'm not so sure about those fish heads though.
