Foodie Friday: Chinese New Year

Comments 3 Standard

This is the last Friday of Chinese New Year, so I thought it would be fitting to send it off with good cheer through a Foodie Friday post! On February 9, the day before Chinese New Year, we had a feast of food to celebrate!

Our theme was more general Asian as opposed to traditional Chinese or Filipino food for the New Year. Unfortunately, I had just gotten the rest of my braces on my top-teeth, so I couldn’t enjoy all of the food—the poor shrimp and bok choy was too hard to eat! But, I was able to have the noodles, and I made sure not to bite them! Luckily, it was Saturday, so my weekday vegetarian diet wasn’t in effect (although, I’d consider Chinese New Year a break day for eating vegetarian), meaning I was able to enjoy the jiaozi and wontons, as well as the noodles and orange chicken!

I hope you’ve all had a great Chinese New Year so far… let’s make the most of our last three days! Gong xi fa cai!

  1. All looks so yummy…I’m glad I didn’t read this until Saturday, or I might’ve had to break my ‘no meat Friday’ Lent obligations.

    • Actually, we bought the orange chicken from Trader Joe’s, haha! 😉 We just put the chicken in the oven, then mixed it with the included sauce.
