Wordless Wednesday {CNY celebration}

Our 3rd annual CNY open house was held last weekend.  We had a wonderful steady stream and family and wonderful friends coming and going all day.  It was my personal objective to  feed all of them Viet and Chinese fare until their tummies burst.
On the menu this year was

Phở Gà
Gỏi Cuốn (Vietnamese Fresh Spring Roll)
Bò Lá Lốt (Grilled Beef Wrapped in Grape Leaves)
Bánh mì (Vietnamese sandwich)
Bò Kho (Vietnamese beef stew)
Char siu bao (Chinese barbecue pork-filled bun) 
Coconut pastries
Fortune cookies
I didn't really take many photos 'cause I was quite busy with that aforementioned food objective and being a hostess to 30-ish people.
The kiddos making spring rolls that I mentioned in yesterday's post.

But after it was all over, I did snap a few pics of the littles in their silks.
Chúc Mừng Năm Mới! (Vietnamese)
