Never celebrated Chinese New Year. But I could go for a huge bowl of fried pork rice and some wonton soup right about now. Oh heck throw in some sweet and sour pork with it.

Happy Chinese New Year

Same here...I'm always up for a celebration.
For my birthday, I got a gift certificate for the Full Moon House, a small local establishment owned by a family who immigrated here from China about 30 years ago. The food is delicious, and the prices are quite reasonable.
I'd love to go there for dinner tonight, but it's been snowing off and on since midnight, and it's starting to pile up. Think I'll just stay in with my snuggly blanket. I have a lot of canned Chinese vegies on hand...maybe I'll get creative.

Hi Buckytom,

Yes, we do celebrate with lots of food!!!..one very popular dish served that we make is jai, a dish that the Buddhist Monks used to eat..mostly vegetarian including:
tree fungus, lotus seed, ginko nuts black moss seaweed, dry golden lily
dried tofu sticks,long rice, sliced bamboo shoots, sliced lotus root, carrot, into "coins" Chinese snow peas, bok choy,water chestnuts, mushrooms, baby corn, but it has evolved where folks will add some seafood like dried oysters and /or pork sausage..

My youngest goes to a school where they have a Mandarin second language program so they had a big assembly yesterday and a big chinese lunch. Very cool. Is it today or tomorrow?

Hi,

Chinese Year 4705 February 18, 2007. It's the year of the Pig, a Yin year. The date changes every year. It is a 15 day celebration, beginning on the first day of the new moon, and ends on the full moon. The celebration on the15th day is called the Lantern Festival.
