This year Chinese New Year falls just after Valentine’s Day and after 2 consecutive birthdays. We are going to be partied out this year but we’ll make time to celebrate, just in a smaller way. We’ll be enjoying this recipe easy to make Ginger Garlic Shrimp Stir Fry along with Ling Ling Potstickers and rice. It will be a simple celebration this year but as usual we’ll eat well.

a few customs

Our family typically celebrates Chinese New Year by cleaning our house top to bottom before the party but we never sweep, just in case we sweep our good luck right out the door. We also give out tangerines or small oranges to guests as this is said to help solidify our relationships over the years. There are so many fun customs for Chinese New Year, we don’t follow them all, we just pick a few. My boys particularly like this one, “don’t wash your hair or you’ll wash the luck right out” and they don’t mind following it either.

still got dumplings

Each year when we celebrate Chinese New Year with a HUGE party. I work for about 5 hours making and cooking hundreds of dumplings. Some we steam, some we boil for soup, and some we cook up to be pot stickers. I know the incredible amount of work that goes into this dumpling-fest. When we’re looking for our smaller family style feast I knew I wanted to include dumplings somehow and I was so glad to find these tasty and easy to prepare pot stickers from Ling Ling
