For Chinese New Year, I had planned to make lettuce wraps, dumplings, wonton soup, chicken and broccoli, rice, and steamed cake for dessert. I made everything like I planned, with two exceptions: I forgot to start the rice early, and I forgot about the mango that I was going to slice to go in the lettuce wraps. Thankfully Mom had some rice in the freezer, but we didn’t end up eating it anyway.
Meiling was quite the little helper. She helped me make the cake and fold all the wontons and dumplings. It was quite fun to have her in the kitchen with me!
