OhMy OhMy! Its CNY again!

This is one of those weeks that I am extremely busy… why? you might ask.. since I am not into celebrating CNY or V-day… well, lets just say I am “more or less” Chinese.. and I “more or less” enjoy having 2 new years every year.. πŸ™‚

Was done spring cleaning of Eleanor last weekend with great help from Doug.. everything was brought out and the interior cleaned thoroughly! I should have done this long time ago… but as you know.. never got to it..

And yes, there is much to prepare. .. nope, I am not baking new year cookies.. but I hope we wont starve while everyone else is gluttoning .. and I dont like to jam with the last minute groc and food shopping crowd… so I made a food itinary and got all the greds early! The art of frozen food cooking is Dougs’ speciality.. πŸ˜‰ ..

See! “clam juice”.. made from boiling real fresh clams 1 week before CNY and then frozen to keep fresh.. To use, empty contents into a big pot, add diced potatoes, carrots, onions and whatever… makes a great clam chowder!

.. and my groc list 5 days ahead of the big feast day? 1.5kg minced pork (thawed by the supermarket, freeze again by me… I think thats not very good… but it cant be helped), carrots, 1 turnip, lots of onions, 20 eggs…, bunch of chili, cloves of garlics, 3 packages of wanton skins … oh yes dried shrimps and waxed Chinese sausages.. and glutinous rice… yum! what am I going to make… πŸ™‚ you’ll see..
