REUNION DINNER -CHINESE NEW YEAR EVE
Initially, I was thinking of eating out for the Reunion dinner this year as firstly there are only 3 of us, secondly, it will be more convenient and finally it will save the cooking and washing up for me. But then I realised that cooking the Reunion dinner and clearing up after that,is all what Chinese New Year is about..... IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT OF CHINESE NEW YEAR!
So my homecooked Reunion Dinner together with my sister-in-law and her mother and sister
Vegetarian Yu Sang - bought from the market, I only need to add the radish and carrot
Not a wholly vegetarian dish- it has dried oysters and fatt choy!
Poached Chicken and hence Hainanese Chicken Rice with chili dipping sauce
Cantonese-style Fried Prawns with ketchup
Hakka Braised Pork Belly and Fish Maw and Fishball soup made up the rest of the menu.
