In my family we like an excuse to celebrate, any excuse at all really! Chinese New Year always comes hot on the heels of Christmas and New Year and as we're already in party mode, it's hard to resist! We have a few paper lanterns, decorations and this cute beanie bear that my Mum brought me as a hostess gift the first time we had a Chinese New Year Dinner.
It was a warm evening so these Watermelon Daiquiris from The Hungry Australian blog were a lovely start to our festivities!
We followed the cocktails with Vegies in Besan Flour Batter with Sweet & Sour Sauce on a bed of Rice, these were really yummy! My daughter who is now vegetarian & Wheat intolerant used to love Sweet & Sour Pork, these vegies were the next best thing!
We finished off with Melon Balls in a Kaffir-Lime Syrup.
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!
