Chúc mừng năm mới!

Phyllo dough filled rolls with spicy meat
and banana dessert served at the Vietnamese New Year Celebration.

Chúc mừng năm mới means Happy New Year in Vietnamese. (Thank you Wikipedia)

Today I celebrated the year of the cat with my friends Carol, Nga, John, Sheila, Chris and many kind members of the Vietnamese community in Phoenix. We were well fed: little egg rolls, some tasty noodles with beef and vegetables, a pickled veggie salad, phyllo dough stuffed with spicy meat and coconut and banana deserts. I soon slipped into a Vietnamese food coma and felt the need to nap.

But...a nap was not in the kitchen wench's future today, because...thanks to Huck and Michelle I was invited to a fun superbowl party at their home. We had amazing eats: bratwurst on rolls from Karsh's bakery, football and "cheesehead" sugar cookies, cornbread (thank you Charles), veggies (thank you Tamika) and other yummy side dishes that I will be working off tomorrow on an overdue run.

Happy Year of the Cat!

Go Packers!
