Happy Chinese New Year to you Mr. Buckytom! I wish I was sitting at your table tonight! Enjoy!

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

I`ll celebrate almost Anything and rarely need an excuse, Gung Hay Fat Choy to you too Dude :wink:

according to my Calendar, 2007 is the year of the Boar (the Pig thingy, not the sort that sends you to sleep).

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,
