GUNG HAY FAT CHOY ! (Happy New Year)

It was a success, my Asian Orange Chicken (w/broccoli) came out really yummy ~ it was unanimous (all they boys agreed...and that's a rarity). Our Chinese New Year dinner was postponed a day (we were invited out to dinner with my brother, sister-in-law and nephews - who could refuse!?) ~ we skipped making dinner for having dinner made for us by Applebee's; which was a lot of fun!

Anyhow, we started off with appetizer's (egg rolls & spring rolls) and then moved on to our orange chicken over white rice(which I added broccoli too - the boys just love their broccoli) ~ it was a little involved; but I would make it again!

Anthony was in the spirit and ate his entire meal with chop sticks...have to give him credit because he even picked up the white rice with his chop sticks!

Eddie on the other hand, had better use for his chop sticks and played the drums...

*I am so proud of all my boys for getting into the spirit and trying something new... it means so very much to me. I feel like the luckiest mommy (and wife) around!! By the time Mia joins the family we will be pro's!!
