I’m launching a new weekly series for the blog today – Off-Topic Tuesdays! I’ve had a ton of random ideas floating around in my head lately of things I’d like to share – anything from a fun new product I love to what we did over the weekend – and none of them are really enough to make a “real” post out of. So, starting today I’ll be popping in every Tuesday with a little bit of randomness for you.
I figure a perfect way to kick off this new series is to share a few drool-worthy photos of what we did last night – celebrate Chinese New Year with my sister and her family!
My brother-in-law is Chinese, so Corey and I always jump at the chance to go over to their house for Chinese food. Needless to say, when my sister called and asked if we’d like to celebrate Chinese New Year with them this year we got very (VERY) excited.
I don’t know the Chinese name for all that we ate – but I know it was all amazing! We had lo mein (long noodles for long life!), pork and shrimp dumplings, fried shrimp, jasmine rice, and white chicken (boiled chicken with an amazing ginger garlic sauce). Mmmm.
I think it’s safe to say we have a new tradition. Now that I’ve seen how tasty Chinese New Year is, I’ll never pass up the chance to celebrate again!
Do you celebrate Chinese New Year?
