Tonight is Chinese New Year eve, and I went to a family dinner. Managed to take a quick shot of some of the food that was eaten this evening. Missing from the photo was roasted duck, a dish of whole steamed fish, a dish of stir-fried shrimp and sugar snap peas, a dish of stewed lotus root and pork, and soup similar to shark’s fin soup but using pollock as a substitute for the shark’s fin.
Pictured from the top left, counter clockwise:
- poached chicken (broth was used to make the soup)
- sesame balls and deep fried pork balls
- spring rolls
- homemade deep fried shrimp and fish balls
Oh my poor, poor diet!
Next, the food I’m making for dinner #2.
