Chinese New Year is a fun holiday for us to celebrate in that we get Chinese food for dinner.  Yes!  It’s my favorite and I’ve been known to thoroughly pig out to the point of being stuffed silly.  Brenda placed a large colorful Chinese Dragon on the wall for decoration and Chef went all out with a delicious Chinese meal of chicken chow mein, sweet and sour chicken, beef and broccoli, fried rice, mixed vegies, vegetarian egg rolls and a surprise for us vegetarians–tofu eggplant!!  It must have taken the staff hours to prepare everything, and it was well worth it.  We all enjoyed our meal tremendously and really appreciated it!!  And, at the end, fortune cookies were passed out.  My fortune read, “It’s time for some real excitment.”  A little corny and vague, but we’ll see.  We played a game when we read the fortunes.  You put the phrase “in bed” after every fortune.  So, mine read “It’s time for some real excitement in bed.”  Ha… we all had a good laugh.  I’ll let you know what happens.  After the meal, we retreated to the dining room, for Chinese tea, coffee, and hot chocolate along with  orange slices and assorted cookies.
