Another revived tradition from long ago – our Chinese feast. We prepped a little each day. Two days ago I started the pork mixture for Steamed Buns (which are baked). Today we started early to finish everything up. Wrapping a 4-inch circle of dough around 1/4 cup char siu (barbecued pork):

fried won tons with a sweet and sour sauce. Everything was so yummy!
