Jan 01, 2009: Happy New Year!

Well... no pictures of fireworks or the ball falling on Times Square, but I do have food pictures from the rest of the trip.

Homemade
Finnish Nissua - Nana and K made this traditional Finnish bread for Christmas.


Steamed Dumplings - I'm relegated to making the wrapper while my mom does the fancy folding.


Yuan (mochi balls in a sweet syrup) - eaten for a lucky new year?


Dining out:
BBQ at Mo's - Ribs and a pulled pork sandwhich with two sides


Blue cheese burger at Lahaina's


Dim Sum
Custard Tarts, Coconut rolls and Pineapple Buns


Hau Gau - Shrimp Dumplings


Sui Mai - Pork Dumpligs


Chinese Broccoli drizzled with Oyster Sauce


Crab Puffs


Rice noodles stuffed with shrimp


Taro Croquette


Clams in Black Bean Sauce


Eggplant stuffed with shrimp paste


Happy New Year!
Not shown are the "Good Luck" foods that one eats for a great year.
In the US, that's black-eyed peas, especially if you're from the South.
Hopefully, I ate a wide enough variety of foods to cover the lucky foods from many cultures... lol. :-)
