Surprise! I am not Chinese, but my youngest daughter is. So... how do I balance her heritage and culture when I know some about it but haven't "lived" it. Chinese New Year is the Mac Daddy of them all. I decided to celebrate CNY like Thanksgiving. We had family over and celebrated CNY on February 14th. I cooked all day. Some things were from scratch and some were assembled. All in all it was a fun time and good food. Here are some photos of our evening.
