Our Chinese New Year Celebration On Sunday

PRELIMINARY ROUND of CHINESE NEW YEAR.... 

There is no public holiday for CNY here in US, thus my kids have to work through this festive season.  Instead we celebrated few days earlier, during the weekend instead of Tuesday.  They invited one family over to join in our dinner which was held at 5pm.... 

Our cooking started in the morning and we were proud to present the following dishes, all made from scratch... LOL... I would never have done these dishes by myself... with the cooperation from my daughter-in-law, I think we did a pretty good job?  LOL... Just complimenting ourselves!  LOL... 

Our own homemade Loe Sang.... 
Consists of cucumber, radish, carrots, smoked salmon... and raisins!
No Kacang Puteh sold here... so we used Bali fruits and fried wanton skin... 
We also made our own sauce... Plum, apricot, honey.... 
Our own homemade roasted pork and roasted chicken....
Oh, we made our own Char Siew as well... BBQ Pork.... 
Three in a platter...
Mixed vegetables...
And the main attraction is this Poon Choy.... 
Never expected we could make this so well...
Ahem... sorry, can't help it... 
LOL... 
Maybe I do this again next year... or perhaps on any other day...
Does not have to wait for festive season, right?
My first CNY meal here in San Jose....

  3. I salute you and your DIL! Every dish made from scratch is impressive. What caught my eye the most is the poon choy. I love it a lot. And from the last photo, I realized that the loe sang was meant to look like a tiger? (it looked like a cute teddy bear).
