Gun Hay Fat Choy!!



Two fellow blog writers are way more organized and festive than I am this Year of the Dragon. Perhaps that is because I am still recovering from our trip to Russia last night. But I have fond memories of my Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Toy, making Egg Foo Young with us, and making a really big deal about the day. So, I kind of felt like I should do something.... Thankfully, my friend Katy's blog Healthy Working Mom came to the rescue with a simple, parade-inducing craft I could make with my son. And, I suffered only momentary inspiration overload reading Jeanette's Healthy Living's post that is a wealth of information about traditions and cuisine. It makes me wish I had my act together to make something Chinese tonight... I mean how amazing do those dumplings look?
