Chinese New Year Celebrations ~ Year of the DRAGON

This year we switched things up a bit. Usually we go out to dinner and celebrate with our friends and their daughter Lucy. This year we decided it would be fun to share our girls culture and heritage with those closest to us.   We threw our own party! It was so much fun to share Chinese New Year with friends and family and we hope to continue this tradition from now on! We had over 60 people attend!

On the menu

Teriyaki Chicken

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Fried Rice

White Rice


Egg Rolls

Chinese Chicken Salad

and of course everyone had their own set of chopsticks! 

And for dessert Dawn and I hand made almond & cashew cookies; ordered fortune cookies and this lovely cake
In honor of the DRAGON ...isn't he something!
Chocolate cake with a wonderful cherry mousse filling ...Yummy!
