Little Foodies China go for an easy Chinese New Year

They've asked several times so now we're off again, learning about other countries and the foods they eat... For those who didn't know, it's Chinese New Year today, the Year of the Ox, we did have elaborate plans but we have a burst pipe above our kitchen ceiling (and since I started typing, it's now running down one of the lights into a strategically placed bin)... Someone coming tomorrow, apparently because the wet patches aren't sagging and the pressure in the boiler hasn't dropped completely we don't have to panic... That's good, not so reassuring, but good. Probably a good thing we've kept the lights turned off, instead we've got candles, the cooker hood light, a table lamp and a camping light - it's romantic! Also the boys and I have been invaded by some chest thing. Small woke up very early and came in to tell us that he had an alien in his chest, Little woke some time later and said he felt really hot inside his chest. This is how mine feels so I guess we've caught something... Anyway for these reasons alone we're going for the mega easy option tonight, more elaborate Chinese food and words another day. Happy Chinese New Year all...

Great Post! Indeed it is Chinese New Year and in multi-cultural Malaysia we celebrate it along with Christmas, Hari Raya, Deepavali and so many other festivals - regardless of what ethnic group you belong to. Who can complain when you get a public holiday!!

I just love they way you expand the palates of your family.

Hugs always.

Blessings on the boiler. Hope all goes well with the repairs. Stir Fry would be just perfect.
