It's the first day of the new year(初一). And I am getting ready to travel back up to Dublin. Had a great meal at home last night (new year's eve family reunion dinner). Dad was out shopping for some meat for the dinner, and he was wondering if we should get chicken. He though, no... then changed his mind and said, "What are we like, no chicken for the new year dinner!", and bought the chicken. Heh.

So what did we have?

* Whole sea bass
* Stewed pork with something that is related to water chestnuts (only grows in winter) cooked. This dish is usually cooked by Hakka people.
* Whole chicken
* Rice noodle with bean curd flakes, prawns, chinese leaves, Chinese mushrooms, dried scallops... was meant to be a vegetarian dish, but prawns and scallops snuck in.
* Chicken and Chinese mushrooms.
* Chicken and vegetable soup.

Obviously, dad cooked way too much as usual, and I am bringing up yummy leftovers.... can't wait! I love the rice noodles. I have some pics, I will put them up as soon as I can.
