Xin nian kuai le!

Yesterday was Chinese New Year's Day.  To celebrate, T and I had a dinner party!  We rearranged the furniture to extend our table to its full length to seat 12 people and cooked up a storm.  Julea came over Saturday and early yesterday to be my sous chef and helped to do LOTS of chopping and dicing.  We had an auspicious 8 entrees on the menu plus some appetizers and dessert!  Unfortunately, we didn't get pictures of everything all laid out at the beginning, but we did get some pictures mid-meal.

Here's a picture of the menu:

Sorry it's a little blurry at the top.
It was nice to get to spend some time with friends over good food!
