Happy Chinese New Year!
It is, of course, the Year of the Ox, which is my year, so everyone please congratulate me (and anyone else who was born in the Year of the Ox)! You can't see it, but I'm wearing red today.
We enjoyed bountiful meals at my parents' house this past weekend in celebration of the New Year, and was able to see my brother and his wife for the first time since their wedding. As always at my parents' house, my Mom (with assistance from my Dad) cooked up a storm, and all of us who were at the table now feel a little more like cow than ox.
