Year of the Ox DinnerPosted: January 27, 2009
I know the official start of the Chinese New Year was on Monday, but we’re having folks over tonight. What’s on the menu?
- Homemade Dumplings (yes, I made the dough) filled with red cabbage, celery, onions and carrots
- Wide Fresh Rice Noodles w/Green Vegetables, Homemade Seitan and spicy Ginger & Garlic sauce
- Homemade Fortune Cookies and Rice Balls Stuffed with Red Bean Paste
Friends will bring the wine and everything will be fine.
The dumplings and red bean paste I made ahead last night (recipes to follow). I also made a huge batch of seitan in order to have some protein source for the week that wasn’t eggs or beans. Looking forward to having an evening with friends.
