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):
There was also won ton soup, paper-wrapped chicken, and
fried won tons with a sweet and sour sauce. Everything was so yummy!
We’ve been enjoying some of our favorite recipes from long ago. Phil made a delicious chicken-rice casserole. Yesterday, I made a prosciutto-provolone stuffed focaccia to go with her chicken vegetable supper soup. Today we made appetizers for our traditional movies and champagne New Year’s Eve. Charcuterie board, sausage in crescent rolls, bacon-wrapped pineapple, and salmon mousse cups:
We also watched the recently-released movie Don’t Look Up.
Well, there haven’t been many. It’s been raining a lot. One text I received with the number of miles ridden said it was “too cold to take a picture.” However, one of our members just rode an e-bike for the first time. Carmen rode 20 miles up Mt Tohivea to Belvedere Lookout Pt on the island of Moorea, French Polynesia.
