Lance and I have spent countless valentines days together, so we jump at any opportunity to avoid the massive crowds at movie theatres and uber-packed restaurants. This year we opted to stay home and invite a few friends over!
This was our second time throwing a Chinese New Year party. I absolutely love it! Its a chance to get our friends together and celebrate the new year, but without all the stress of the holiday season. This year I was a little unsure if we would have a decent turnout since the New Year landed on Valentines Day. I was excited to find out that many of my friends felt the same way as I do about the holiday.
I had a ton of food to make and not a whole lot of time to do it, so I didn’t get any pictures. One of my friends took a few so I have posted those. It was so fun to decorate everything in red for the party, it really helped pull the whole theme together.
So here was my menu:
Appetizers – spring rolls and crab wontons
