Happy Chinese New Year everyone! How did you celebrate the event on January 23rd?
Since that was the date of my wisdom teeth removal, it was definitely not a day for celebration so we had to postpone our event for a few more days. The good thing is that the kids have no idea when Chinese New Year really is so we can celebrate it anytime, teach the kids some culture, and eat delicious food while we’re at it! Did you know that this year is the year of the Dragon? That ought to catch the kid’s attention!
VH Sauces are a staple in our pantry – at any given time you will find one variety or another in the pantry (or fridge once opened).
I’m always looking for new recipes to keep things fresh in our kitchen – while I have my favorites sometimes you need a change and if you haven’t already checked out the VH Sauces website for inspiration, here’s your push to do so! There’s a great recipe there for Spring Rolls with Garlic Hoisin Dip using ready-made spring rolls. If you are inspired and want to try your own, check out my recipe for Salad Rolls with Hoisin Dip at the link!
Another easy recipe tip is one I got from my friend – use VH Teriyaki Stir Fry Sauce with cooked chicken and veggies and instead of making a stir fry, serve it in a tortilla wrap instead (P.S. this makes a great leftover lunch meal as well!)
In addition to VH Sauces for helping me create meals for dinner, VH Steamers are also a great quick lunch for me while at home with the kids. My kids are only too happy to have a bologna sandwich or frozen pizza for lunch but for me, not so much. VH Steamers are great because they don’t take up a lot of room in the freezer yet are a delicious, quick meal. My favorite is the Kung Pao Chicken.
Now that I’m writing about it, I’m craving VH Teriyaki Stir Fry wraps! I’m going to have to wait a few days before I can dig in…oh the torture of wisdom teeth!
