Last weekend, my family celebrated Chinese New Year and the upcoming year of the tiger the way we usually do - with a big family feast! Check out the below for a celebration in pictures. From Wok stir-fried shrimp and simple steamed fish to a whole chicken and fried rice flour sesame balls, it was a family fun day full of food! In addition to honoring our ancestors with delicious, luxurious foods, a lot of traditional menu items graced the table because their Chinese pronunciation sounds strikingly similar to the Chinese words for fortune, prosperity or happiness (e.g., bowls of tangerines are always present because their pronunciation in Chinese sounds similar to "gold"). God knows I wouldn't mind more of that.
