Last year we had the dinner (http://renejenny.blogspot.com/2014/03/chinese-new-year-dinner-2014.html) one month into the Year of the Horse. We had 2 guests then. The year had passed and the Chinese New Year of the Goat is in. This year we also had 2 adults guests as well, the difference is that they are family. And we also have a 3rd guest in a 3 yr old granddaughter. The CNY dinner is actually a reunion dinner and usually celebrated on the CNY's eve, when family members gathered together. Tonight's dinner is indeed a reunion dinner, even though it is not celebrated on the CNY's eve.
As usual, the traditional Hakka yong tau foo (stuffed bean curd). I deep fried the stuffed bean curd, then braised them with Chinese mushrooms.

Some of the following dishes were only thought of when I was preparing the ingredients.
|Stir fried Chinese chives with eggs|
|Stir fried snow peas with carrots and minced pork|
|Stir fried prawns with celery|
|Sweet and sour fish|
We love blanced bok choy. So this is a must, even though it is the simpliest dish

Like usual, we bought the following meat from the oriental store:
