Husband and I are organizing a CNY Dinner Party tomorrow night instead of Sunday night so that everyone can enjoy drinking and hang out later into the night.
I've been doing grocery shopping for 2 days, running from one store to another to get the stuff I need for my planned CNY Dinner Menu! I'm glad where we live, Asian grocery stores as well as the regular grocery stores are within 5-15 minutes drive. We do not need to head down to Chinatown to get our Asian grocery!
I made more pineapple rolls last night and have finally emptied my container of pineapple jam. Now I have 3 containers filled with pineapple rolls. With all my CNY cookies stocked up, they are ready for my guests to sample tomorrow! =)..Who knows, I can start a cookies business in the future! haha!
Anyway, we're expecting about 10-12 people to show up tomorrow and most of them have never experienced a CNY celebration. I suspect my husband will be blasting some CNY songs he bought from Malaysia tomorrow. We will also have some gaudy CNY decorations that I picked up yesterday and put them around the house!!After all, it's Chinese New Year...... so do expect to see pieces of flashy red & gold stuff around the house!
Tomorrow's Dinner Party Menu, everything will be prepared from scratch by me and maybe my sous chef, husband:
- Vegetarian Fried Noodles
- Shrimp & Pineapple Fried Rice
- Seafood Dumpling
- Vegetarian Sping Roll
- "Pie Tee" (**Not sure yet)
- Seafood Korean Pancake
- Baby BokChoy with Chinese Mushroom
- Curry Leaf Shrimp
- Belacan Chicken or Chicken Satay
- Yee Sang
- Honey Dew Sai Mai Lo
- Lychee or Longan Jelly
- Beer, Wine, Soda & Juice
I'll be slaving in my kitchen trying to prepare as much in advance as I can today so that I have more time to entertain guests tomorrow!
