Happy Lunar New Year! It's the Year of the Rat... We had our annual get-together this past weekend to celebrate. This year, because of how busy it has been for us, instead of Adam, Jill, Jason, and I preparing the meal, we asked everyone to bring an Asian dish of their choice to share. We actually sat at two tables this year. Dinner was fantastic- the evening was a lot of fun and we ate until we were stuffed. It didn't take long. The menu included: Chicken and Corn Soup, Honey Walnut Shrimp, Shrimp Pad Thai, Spicy Orange Chicken, Kung Pao Chicken, Broccoli Beef, Roast Pork, 2 Thai salads (I can't remember the names, but one had cucumbers and the other had citrus fruits and beef and shrimp- sorry, Adam), Spicy Cashew Chicken, and I made spring rolls- It seems like the last time I made them was last Lunar New Year's! To top it all off, we had Vietnamese Coffee and Coconut Custard. If I were to make a resolution, it'd be to make more Vietnamese food this year... I appreciate being able to share my culture and to celebrate with friends- eating Asian food is like eating comfort food to me. Wishing everyone a prosperous and healthy New Year.

By the way, since Monday is a holiday, that means I should have more free time coming up in the next few days- check back again for updates about Grace and Jeremy!
