Celebrate The Year of the Horse

Chinese Tea Eggs

The Asian Lunar New Year (aka Chinese New Year) begins on Friday, January 31, the first day of a 15-day festival marking the start of the Year of the Horse. What a terrific opportunity to view the noisy, colorful parades, celebrate with family and friends, and enjoy mountains of good food.

Gong Hay Fat Choy! If you are in Seattle, click here for a schedule of events at Hing Hay Park on Saturday, February 1. It will be a busy day full of Lion and Dragon Dances, Taiko Drumming, Drill Teams, Martial Arts Demonstrations, and a Children's Parade. Or consider a drive across a bridge to celebrate on the other side of Lake Washington and join Bellevue's celebration the following weekend.

 I searched my blog archives for some appropriate dishes and came up with these Asian-flavored favorites, more fusion than Chinese but "in the spirit of". Click on any of the titles below to take you to the recipe.
