For Christmas, my mom had the best idea EVER and gave us a year of family dinners. She did it by wrapping a food item representing each meal for each month and I had to guess what the full present was. Cool, huh?! Last month we did a fancy dinner and this month we did a Chinese dinner to honor the Chinese New Year (Feb 10).
We had a truly fantastic menu and I ate WAY too much. Below are some photos of the meal and some links to the recipes. Even though Chinese New Year has passed, I would definitely recommend doing a Chinese-themed dinner! So much fun!
‘Egg’ drop soup
Deep fried spring rolls
Gardein orange chicken with rice
Mu shu veggies with Chinese pancakes (from Chloe’s Kitchen)
Almond cookies (I LOVED these. Though I would recommend a bit more almond extract.)
