We do not host New Year's, and have been doing a lot of cooking but not so much cleaning. So far, the pantry, my Tupperware shelf are done, but get this, my children have cleaned our their rooms! I expect the rest of the house will be clean by Chinese New Year.
Love the multicultural reprieve!
I've started a batch of kuromame in the crock pot this morning, and it's not too late for you. If you start your crock pot at the stroke of midnight, it will be ready for New Year's eating in the morning.
We are also in charge of bringing a salad to New Year's--my Mom's Japanese coleslaw. Note that I've updated the recipe because Nissin no longer makes the pre-flavored noodle packages. Switched out to the ramen snack packs.
And one that note, making one last push for the Feeding My Ohana Virtual Food Drive. We will add matching funds and additionally, Second Harvest has a donor who will match funds today as well!
Stay safe all and happy new year of the sheep!
