Omigosh! Can it get any colder than this?! It’s 20 degrees out there, and with the wind and rain, it really feels like 10.
January is always such a miserable month, weather-wise. Luckily, we’re almost at the end of it. And then, as soon as that happens, the Lunar New Year will be here.
I love celebrating this special holiday because there are so many delicious dishes associated with it, ranging from Chinese dumplings to Korean tteoguk, from Vietnamese banh chung to Tibetan guthuk… to name just a few.
I want to eat them all! ??
Though not traditional, this year I’m planning to mark the holiday with a Build-Your-Own Bao Bun Tray, like this:
It’d be the most practical for me to make. I can make the buns and fillings on separate days, and then just warm them up prior to serving. I’m sure it’ll be fine.
Is anybody else going to celebrate the Lunar New Year? What will you be serving?
P.S. Remember the Roasted Salmon I talked about last week? This Roasted Salmon ↓
Well, the recipe is out. It’s my first recipe of the year, hurray! Check it out, if you’re so inclined! Here → Roasted Salmon with Fennel and Lemon Mustard Sauce
But first, take a look at these:

I love Asian dishes, although I have to make them gluten free now being Celiac.
We don’t celebrate Lunar New Year. Although when I lived in Penang, Malaysia the celebrations were huge!
It’s not widely celebrated in the US except in big cities or where there’s a significant Asian American population, but it’s gaining traction. Even in our suburban school, we try to do fun crafts with the students marking the occasion. I’m excited about all the recipes I can try!
It’s always fun to check out the links in your parties each week. This week I brought you my BLACK EYED PEA CHILI, CREAMSICLE CHICKEN & CIDER GLAZED and RUBBED BABY BACK RIBS. I hope you have a GREAT weekend.
Yum, Tamy! Chili, chicken, ribs… they all sound delish!

Your salmon looks to die for. We are huge salmon fans here and I think that may just be my perfect meal.
Thanks for featuring my flapjacks. Have a great week xx
Thanks! My family loves salmon, too. For me, though, I prefer cod. But I’m starting to appreciate salmon more and more. Your flapjacks are interesting. In the US, our flapjacks are more like pancakes.
