chinese new year
until this year, i wouldn't have had ANY idea when it was either.
but we have GOOD friends that now have a daughter (!) that is still in china and all of a sudden we feel so much closer to a country we haven't given much thought of in the past.
this recipe and some kids liked it and some didn't. oh well. we decorated with some easy paper lanterns. and ate with chopsticks.
after dinner we had a "parade" with a 6 headed "dragon" (an old "happy birthday" tablecloth with 6 holes cut in it and streamers taped to the side). i found "the chinese new year 2013 song" and we played it in the background.
