Lunar New Year Cake

26 Jan

On Lunar New Year, I lamented on the lack of New Year’s goodies in our household.  After the Gregorian New Year celebration, the Lunar New Year just crept out from nowhere.  One would think that with this year, being the Year of the Dragon, there would be no creeping.  Dragons roar, don’t they?  (My Dovahkiin character knows this fully well.  Fortunately, she can roar too.)  Who else would come to my rescue with a New Year Cake but a family friend born under the Year of the Dragon.  How lucky is that.

The day after, Jessica (not to be confused by Jess from here, here, and here) came through for me with a beautiful Red Bean New Year Cake made by her mother.  Ping yi, as I call her, is generous and enjoys cooking.  The soups she makes are quite good, and the sweets as well.  So I look forward to the nian gao.

Have some, Kitchen God, and please keep your sticky rice cake hole shut.  Enjoy, eat your fill, and I will too.  You already had whoopie pies and sticky orange breads before this, which should keep you quite happy.  And  just so you know I’m serious about passing on a positive report to the Jade Emperor… Fus Ro Dah!

    Good to know it wasn’t just me who finished off the whoopie pies.
