Saturday, we had our annual Chinese New Year party at the end of the traditional two week-long New Year celebration. As I explained to our 14 guests, celebrating Chinese New Year brings a little comfort and piece of home for me, here in a "foreign land." It's probably my tenth or eleventh party. Fun fun. I loved being surrounded by good friends and yummy comfort food reminding me of home. For dinner, we ate potstickers, cashew chicken, orange chicken, and rice with delicious gai may baus for dessert! The gai may baus (coconut buns) were especially delicious. I need to try making them sometime. I remember when I first moved away from home, asking my mom to FedEx overnight me a dozen fresh gai may baus from Imperial Bakery. De-lish!
