CNY Reunion Dinner

  • Sumo

Dear Readers, how are you celebrating your Chinese New Year?! It must be a great celebration you all have and some even might still in the holiday! My CNY was okay but I have not have enough holiday as my class restarts today. This is too soon! I hate this and I want more holidays!!! I haven’t rest enough!

Well, then, let’s talk bout the CNY I had. This year, there was reduce of house-to-house visiting among my relatives. The only meal together was the reunion dinner on the day before the CNY day 1. It was actually like a pot luck where each family bring something and have it together in one of our houses. ^^ I did enjoy my dinner a lot as I had those mouth-watering delicacies prepared by all my aunts.

The fried spring roll炸春卷 prepared by eldest aunt. Yes, the spring rolls symbolize the coming of spring season.

Next, my aunt’s fave — Arrowhead with lots of the greeny vege ,芽菇芹菜 (sorry, I dunno what it is in English). I took only those cutie arrowheads. Not the greeny vege.

Another one was the meatballs cooked with sea cucumbers, carrots, and salted cabbage. The minced meat was well marinated and shaped into balls. That was so yummylicious.

Broccoli with whitish scallops.

Chicken, ‘bak zham gai’ which was a must have during the reunion dinner. It came along with the dipping sauce which was a mix of soy sauce, oyster sauce and large amount of fried shallot.

Braised mushrooms, dried scallops and yu piu焖冬菇干贝鱼漂 . Normally we would have braised mushrooms and chicken feet. But this, the chicken feet had substituted with yu piu. The aromatic brothy gravy was great to go with a bowl of rice.

My youngest aunt prepared this stuffed tofu pok.

Finally was the braised belly pork with yam芋头扣肉 prepared by my mum. Hulala… The belly pork was specially selected early morning in the market. It has to be fried and then marinated for a day before this was made. It is not an easy task to prepare this dish.

The fine texture of belly pork with the even proportion of fats melted right away in the mouth.

I am salivating while typing this. I miss the reunion dinner a lot; the food, the family members and the get-together!

Happy Monday blues…
