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).

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
