Welcoming 4705 and the Year of the Pig with a New Year's Feast

POST #    2394

Hello, food photos! When was the last time so many of you appeared on this site? Saturday night, we went over to Brooklyn Heights to have dinner with my parents. Also there were my cousin Julia and her husband and my other cousin Stephanie. What we encountered was a 13 dish meal (plus dessert) to help ring in the Chinese New Year. Based on the Lunar calendar, it's 4705 (2007 is so far behind) and the Year of the Pig. As we do every year, my mom made an amazing assortment of dishes. My favorite was the lion's head meatballs and the rice cakes. I could eat those every day!

See also the Year of the Dog, the Year of the Rooster, and the Year of the Monkey.

I'm a newbie to the blog. I have to commend you on the content and pictures. Quite lovely really.

Your yummy dinner looks like a fabulously delicious feast. Wow! I wish my family celebrated holidays like yours does. And to think I was proud of my little bags of red Swedish fish. Happy New Year.

Oh Lord, these photos are making me hungry! What does it mean if a person was born in the year of the pig? What special traits or meaning does this carry? Thanks and fabulous photos.
