Chinese New Year Eve Dinner

14 Feb

Some pics from dinner tonight. I hope everyone has a lucky new year! Year of the Tiger, which is the year I was born (1986) but I was born before new year day that year so I’m an Ox rather than a Tiger. Rawr.

dinner table

roast park
Roast pork with hoisin sauce.

lobster
Giant lobster. We had two of these guys.

ringo lobster
Ms. Ringo kitty sniffing da lobsta. I think she liked the smell, she later sneaked into the bag and licked it.

cheesy lobster
Lobster with cheese sauce cooking in wok (recipe from Rasa Malaysia). I stir-fried the lobster instead of deep frying it and used 3/4 cup cheddar cheese instead of American cheese. This dish was delicious melt in your mouth heaven. We’re going to save the leftover sauce to make pasta. A must try recipe, so easy and tasty!

shrimp chips
Homemade shrimp chips. We have these every year. They look like plastic discs (like this) before frying, it’s pretty awesome watching them puff up.

cereal milk
Lastly, we made some cereal milk (refer to Momofuku post), which was not that amazing. It just tasted like milk from frosted flakes. Good thing we didn’t buy it from Momofuku; perhaps having it as fro-yo would be more interesting.

bella eula
Happy New Year! Lucky fortune cat (aka Bella) wishes you a prosperous new year of the tiger!
