Fried 'Nian Gao' ~ Sticky rice cake ~ CNY 2010

'Nian Gao' in Mandarin or 'Nin Ko' in Cantonese is a must-have item during CNY.  This sticky glutinous rice cake is symbolic as it carries a homonym that sounds like 'year~high/tall'.  For business people eating this will link them to prosperity and wealth and working people will look forward to career advancement, promotion. Slice them up when they're still soft, keep them in containers and they can be stored in the fridge for months. I normally steam and dip them in freshly grated young coconut mixed with some salt or just fry with beaten egg.  But this time around, I've decided to be a bit more 'challenging' and try out Elin's recipe.  Thanks, Elin of  Elinluv's Tidbits Corner   for sharing!

Abalone Soup ~ CNY 2011

Hi, I'm back!  Made this Abalone Soup for the reunion dinner and the soup was really delicious.  Abalone is 'Bao Yu' in Cantonese, 'Bao' sounds like 'guaranteed' and 'Yu' sounds like 'excess' so put together it sounds like 'guaranteed excess'!   Now, that's something to look forward to, to usher in the New Year!  I used fresh abalone and it was my first experience handling this and thought that it would be a daunting task.  Surprisinlgy it was not to be and removing them from their shells and cleaning them weren't that difficult after all.
