Chinese New Year 2014

Wishing all my readers a very happy and prosperous Chinese new year!

We had a Twilight meeting for our Little Athletics on CNY Eve, which severely postponed our Dinner!  Fortunately, I cooked everything ahead of time, so all we had to do when we came home from sports was just to cook up the rice (I’m a rice-a-holic) and warm up the dishes. Dinner was very late (9:45PM!!), but since we didn’t have to worry about getting up early for school, I let it go.

Top row: Chinese Broccoli with Oyster Sauce; Fish in Cheong Cheng Sauce (recipe here); Cabbage, Carrot, Lily Flower, Black Fungus Strips, Glass Vermicelli Stir-Fry

Bottom row: Roast Duck, Chinese Roast Pork, Chinese BBQ Pork (All Chinese take-away because I just couldn’t do it all in 30C heat.  And there was the sports meet to think about.  Yes, I’m a wimp. Superwoman I am not.)

For dessert:

Orange Chiffon Cake
