Which essentially means an excuse to make a new recipe. Because of the snow and generally chilliness we didn't go to Philly's Chinatown for any of the standard festivities. Instead, we substituted Lion Dances and firecrackers with the following...
Hamper shopping at Ikea/ Bill pretending to be Raiden from Mortal Kombat
Lord of the Rings Movies
And, General Tsao's Chicken with Oven-baked Broccoli
Thank you, China (and Peter Jackson)!
