Year of the Tiger

February 10, 2010

So while we were making Valentine's earlier today, it turns out that two of our favorite blogs were sharing ideas about Chinese New Year. Perfect timing and motivation to get going on our own New Year's preparations. Check out the great list of craft ideas at The Crafty Crow. Our good fortune banners from last year were included in the list. Thanks! And then head over to The Artful Parent where Jean has highlighted our New Year's reading list and some other fun things including recipes for dumplings. We love to eat them but have never attempted to make them from scratch. Sounds like a good thing to try in the Year of the Tiger!

A note about the pic: seemed fitting as we are saying good-bye to the Year of the Ox/Cow and preparing to welcome the Year of the Tiger....anyone recognize it? It's from last year's Seder table.

I stumbled upon your blog today and have adored looking through your posts. I have a sister adopted from Korea, and hope SO MUCH to adopt one day in the not so distant future. I am curious about your travels... it must be exciting to live in so many different places! Do you go for work reasons or life-expereince reasons? Just curious and didn't find the answer reading through the blog. You look to be very blessed!

we are so excited to be celebrating Chinese New Year here in Hawaii where they really know how to ring it in! Back home in Maryland, not so much. Thanks for sharing all the links!

There is a good article and recipes for making dumplings in the February/March issue of Fine Cooking. If you can't get it online I might be able to scan and email it to you.
