Gung hay fat choy! Happy Chinese new year friends, for 2016 we celebrate the year of the Monkey. Being Cantonese, this was a big food holiday for our family.
As a kid, I remember picking cherry blossoms with my grandfather, and afterward he would place them in a gorgeous hand-painted blue porcelain vase that I was never allowed to touch. It would always be positioned right next to some delicious tangerines and bright red envelopes for good luck.
Our kitchen table was packed with whole steamed fish, giant bowls of rice, stir fried vegetables, char siu, roasted duck, and chicken. Of course, my favorite was the pink bakery boxes filled to the brim with pastries. Haha, In a span of one week, I probably gained five jubilant pounds!
A must have auspicious dish for the new year is noodles. Why have noodles? Longevity! To make sure we check that off the list, I’m sharing an easy and flavorful stir-fried garlic noodle recipe mixed with tender chicken and vegetables.
A special feast all in one over-flowing bowl!…
