And Then Came the Dragons

Today marks the Lunar (Chinese) New Year, the year of the dragon! They say that the year of the dragon is the luckiest of all the zodiac years. It should be a year of good fortune. Traditionally, the family gets together for an end of the year dinner. A feast to bring in the new year. This year's dinner did not disappoint. We ate walnut shrimp, steak with gai lan, steamed flounder, tofu soup, crispy chicken and sweet and sour pork.

For dessert, my sister picked up this yummy fruit cake. It had a Boston cream filling topped with fresh fruit. It was delicious! Gong Hay Fat Choy to all! Bring on the dragon!

  1. As a Tiger, I think you'll find that Dragons aren't that lucky. My other half is a dragon, and that's not too lucky in my book!!!

  2. Happy Chinese New Year!

    Girl, once again I want to know how come you are not the size of an elephant!

    Wow, good looking food.

  3. Happy Chinese New Year to you and your family.
