Chinese New Year ~ 農曆新年 ~ 2016

Yum
Tis my first time celebrating Chinese New Year away from home and although it was a short break, I enjoyed myself tremendously in the company of loved ones.  And where did I go?...... Melbourne


Dragon Head in front of Eureka building, Southbank, Melbourne

Fireworks at Crown casino.

Our reunion dinner at Pacific Seafood BBQ House, Toorak Road, South Yarra.


Braised Lobster noodles, big portion, very delicious.
 The lobster was very fresh and the dish was very well done.



Waiter in action!


Braised pork knuckle.   Meat was tender and tasty as well.



Garlicky  Kai Lan 
Braised mushrooms with Broccoli, also tasty but I find that the sauce is a wee bit too thick.

And to round off our reunion dinner, we headed for dessert at Stokers in South Melbourne


Pancake Suzette
 pancakes with orange zest, butter and orange segments, drizzled with flaming Grand Marnier.



Monkey Business ~  What a co-incidence to usher in the Year of the Monkey!
Pancakes with mashed bananas, cinnamon mix and nutella.

Lavender lemon cookies ~ 薰衣草柠檬曲奇

These dainty looking Lavender lemon cookies have a subtle taste of lavender, not too much for I used  fresh leaves instead of dried flowers.  They are buttery, taste like shortbread with a light floral aroma.  They are simple, cute and sure to impress.  Try gifting them at a Christmas cookie swap or great to give as a gift during the coming festive season.
