Chinese New Year....seems to be a very big deal in China where families comes together and celebrate, time is given off from work and school and everyone eats lots of good food together!
This year, with a little urging from Ben...we made all of our own food! We also invited a friend of ours who also has 2 children from China.
So here are a few pictures of the fun we had....
Ben, our chief dumpling maker with his trusty side kick, Kiara. She is always up for some good food adventures in the kitchen!
Some of treats....fried rice, teriyaki chicken, pork roll, lo mein, Asian vegetables, dumplings, crab Rangoon....it was all so good! The biggest debate of the night was to use chopsticks or a fork....we had to hold Ben back...he can't believe we can eat faster than him with chopsticks and we don't let him use the steam shovel method--picking up your plate and raking it in! The good news is that some used forks but most stuck to their chopsticks.
We topped it off with a nerf gun fight and brownies and ice cream....a sweet ending to a fun night!
