Chúc Mừng Năm Mới / Happy Lunar New Year!

I hope it brings you & yours peace, happiness, good luck & love.

We are gearing up for our 3d annual celebration Saturday; we are expecting between 30-40 people. Will be starting the food preparations tonight & go straight through to Saturday. The menu looks great on paper I must say, now I just have to pull it off ;) This will be my first year trying to make banh chung- a little intimidating but I’m looking forward to it! Tonight I start the mut hot san tran- candied lotus seeds. Wish me luck!

Best wishes xx

We celebrated SinterKlaas on Sunday with Hans’ family. It was really lovely! We are still eating the homemade appeltaart :) Little Man & his cousins were so sweet, so excited. A lovely, lovely day.

This weekend we bought a tiny little tree for Christmas in soil that we can replant. Little Man & I strung wooden beads & painted felt flowers yesterday for decorations. He noted that Buddha likes it under the tree because it’s so pretty.

On Saturday I turned another year older :) I was treated to dinner out with Hans & 2 friends- yummy food & too much alcohol…

Sunday we had some folks over to celebrate Thanksgiving. It was a nice mix of American, Canadian, Indian & Dutch friends! It was entirely vegetarian & while I usually steer away from being preachy about not eating meat & fish, I am going to put this out there: Thanksgiving is still awesome without turkey!

We had roasted pumpkin-thyme turnovers, garlic mashed potatoes, Vietnamese lemongrass & chili string beans, ginger roasted tofu with stuffing, penne with fontina, vegan spinach dip, salad, braised sprouts, spicy lentils, pumpkin pie, pecan pie & banana pudding. Granted, the majority of guests were vegetarians, but the meat eaters were quite happy, too.

It’s always a bit strange not to be in the US for the holiday, but since it’s so close to Christmas & we usually do our big travel then, the celebration is typically on the weekend before. It’s nice to be with other Americans who might feel a bit homesick.

However you spend yours I hope it’s lovely. Best wishes! xx
