Today is Chinese New Year and...
We are celebrating the year of the
I don't know what our exact celebratory plans are but...
What I do know is...
A traditional dinner will likely take place this weekend!
|I'll have to make my way to the market...|
|And fill up on some goods.|
|I might even buy these traditional lucky candies to share too.|
My Grandma always had these out.
Lots of memories around these little candies
|Red envelopes filled with money (no minimum) are given to the children.|
It's what we call Lucky Money.
If we are giving money as a gift, they will come in these envelopes.
Here we are at Christmas time :)
That being said...
I thought I would round-up a few Chinese recipes I've made overtime and shared on the blog in light of this occasion!
- King Mushroom with Bok Choy...
- Beef and Broccoli and...
- Chicken with veggies can be found here.
|Spicy Chicken Stir-fry|
|Vegetarian/Hoisin Sauce Chicken Stir-fry.|
Hope you enjoy them!
Living life without rush update:
As I mentioned the other day...
I've been doing my best to slow myself down.
There have been days this week that have been so completely rushed that, inevitably, left me feeling exhausted (and slightly cranky) but...
I've been mindFUl (and making a point to) pause. stop. and breathe so that I can find my calm. My peace.
|Finding calm in the simple things.|
I'll continue on with this practise as the days go on.
|Enjoying and savouring moments like these :)|
Now, seeing that it's #RECIPEFRIDAY and all...
I'd love to see what you've been making and loving this week!
I can't wait to see what you've cooked up!
Happy Chinese New Year!
