龍年快樂;Happy Dragon Year

大年初一,真是睡覺的好天氣啊~
來看看昨晚除夕大餐的菜色:
The very first day of Chinese New Year, what a great day for sleep~
Let's see the Chinese New Year's Eve's dishes~
獅子頭~ 姨姨的作品

This classic Shanghai dish as below is named Lion's Head because of the
massive size of the meatballs, and because the cabbage,
when cooked, looks like a lion's mane.

當歸醉雞,基本菜色,姨姨的作品:
wine marinated chicken, this also made by Michico, she loves making this:
再來就是阿媽大顯身手部分:年糕,過年一定要有的、還有魚:
Glutinous rice cake~ Very basic cake on Chinese New Year's eve. And fish~ Must have fish~ In Chinese means every day you have save(fortune or money).
蝦子、香腸~
Shrimp, and sausage.
豬肉、還有干貝跟豆干。
Pork, scallop, and dried bean curd.
雞肉還有蘿蔔糕~
Chicken and turnip cake.
滿滿一桌~ 
All full, means to come to perfection. 
獅子頭的內部姨姨有都塞一條蝦子~
祝福大家龍年愉快,我們到初五再回來寫部落格囉~ 放假~
Wish everyone has a wonderful dragon Chinese New Year, we will be back on 1/27~~~ 
Happy New Week to all of you!
