As I've mentioned earlier in my blog (wow 4 years ago haha...), we will usually have vegetarian meal for the day, so this year, it's no different except that instead of making the usual tzai choy (vegetarian) dish, I've made additional dishes.
So I have Tzai Choy (Vegetarian Dish) Version 4.0. Version 3.0 post have more details about this dish.
I have some celery stir fried with capsicums in traffic light colours and carrots. Just fried them all in some oil then sprinkle on some water before adding a wee bit of vegetarian oyster sauce. Sighhhh it's so different from stir frying them in some chopped garlic... this is sooooo plain, soooooo NOT tasty at all!!!
Next, I have my boiboi's favourite sweet and sour veaty bites of the "chicken" pieces cooked in tomato puree with some carrots and capsicums. He loves this so much that he asked for this dish 3 days in a row!!!! It's very abnormal of him to ask for repeats cos he has inherited the mummy's "memory problem" of not able to eat the same stuff for 2 days in a row, well except for bread in my case. More on Veaty Bites here and here.
So that was my plain first day of lunar new year. How was yours? I'm sure more exciting than mine haha... anyway wishing you guys more merry feasting till Chap Goh Mei.
