Christmas 2007

Christmas 2007 is a wet day instead of cold as usual.It was drizzling the last couple of days.

This year we had planned to spend Christmas at my Brother in law's place, at Montgomery ,Alabama.

We started the day at 9 am central time, ready to cook a whole lot of food.,since my sister-in law had planned a party at lunch time,12pm plus Karaoke time.

We started preparing Pork and Shrimp Dumpling,Salad, Braised Duck with Mushroom,Stew Fish with Soy sauce,rice and my Famous Hakka Dish, Taro Ball with Black Mushroom and Dried Shrimp.

They also bought a brand new grill, ready to BBQ some ribs and chicken wings. But unfortunately he did not check the connector to the gas tank, it was little too big. So We can use the grill, we have to bake the ribs and chicken wings in the oven.Also we had a big Honey Ham to go in to the oven too.

We were real busy, as guests started to come in. Each family also brought a dish. We have more food, everywhere. Macaroni and cheese, Stir fried vegetables with Tofu, more salad, Braised Ham hock with mushroom,dessert, fruits on Phyllo dough, Italian Cheesecake, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Sweet Potato pie, Coconut/pineapple pie. We also have Bubble Ice Tea and the best

Guiling cold noodles.

Some of the ladies helped to make the Dumpling, and we started to enjoy our lunch.There was plenty of food.

Then , the ladies start to have their Karaoke party. They can sing some real Chinese Oldies. The children/teenagers played games while the men sat around to talk.

They were so much food left ,so each guest got them a to go plate to take home.

It was a great Christmas party with friends and families. After that a lot of dishes to clean. And our family, drove back to Columbus, Georgia.
