Today is Chinese New Year, and it is the Year of the Dragon.
We are currently teaching our daughter about different languages and cultures. Since she is only 3.5 years old, we have been keeping the lessons light. We tell her that there are many different languages other than what she speaks. We talk about places that are far away from us, and we celebrate other cultural holidays and meals.
I love when holidays like Chinese New Year roll around because it is another opportunity to open her up to the many cultures that make our world a wonderful place to live.
If you would like to celebrate this holiday along with the rest of the world today, VH has you covered. They carry sauces and steamers that will help you turn any Monday night dinner in to a Chinese New Year celebration that your whole family will love. They have sauces for everything from stirfrys, dipping, soya and regular cooking.
There are also a number of recipes on the VH website that you can try out. You know me, I’m all about the slow cooker and VH has a nice looking 5-Spice Slow-Cooker Chicken recipe that I am dying to try out.
If you aren’t sure what to make, you can filter the recipe search down by meat type (so you can finally get rid of that extra chicken sitting in your freezer), then further by sauce(s) type and it will list just the ones you would be interested in.
And what would Chinese New Year be without a celebratory giveaway?
One lucky This Bird’s Day reader will win a VH Chinese New Year gift pack valued at $60.
