Happy Chinese New Year!!

Today is the Chinese New Year, and to celebrate, we cooked up some Chinese food.  It's probably not too authentic, but Company's Coming called it Chinese, so that's good enough for me.

We started with hot and sour soup.

This was really, really good!  It was also very easy to make.  I added some sriracha to mine to make it even spicier.  We'll be making this again.

The main course was Cantonese Chow Mein.

This was crunchy, and flavourful, and I added some sriracha to it too.

Our weekend is off to a pretty tasty start, and it's only going to get tastier.

What are you up to this weekend?

Yum! That looks so good! I love chinese but I don't even it much anymore as a lot of the things used to make it, like the sauces, have gluten in them. But it's definitely a cuisine that I love!

I have a pretty quiet weekend ahead of me. I went to water aerobics this morning, and now I am going over to see the house of a co-worker who was recently relocated down to Charlotte.
