“Now our  Christmas festivities are over we turn our thoughts to Chinese New Year –Its the year of the Rooster, he is considered to be Hard Working,Resourceful and Talented. An admirable character , one I would like to be but sadly no I am a Rat ! Please check out my choice of a very basic Chinese Dish –“Egg Fried Rice with oyster sauce”.

For those who like a less Oriental dish I have a casserole recipe and a curried parsnip Pie, and for dessert Lemon Shortbread.

But I will finish off this header for February with “Gong Hey Fat Choy “ (Happy New year in Cantonese)  .Also Happy Valentine`s Day to all my readers.”

“I do hope you enjoy my recipes and ideas and should you have any suggestions or recipes please let me know.
Maybe February will not be as bad weather wise as predicted and the frost ,fog and freezing winds have left us.
All the best
