Eve of the Chinese New Year
Today marks the Eve of the Chinese New Year. We usually indulge in a hotpot dinner with my aunt and sister, and tomorrow my aunt will be enjoying a family dinner with my cousins, while my sister will join her in-laws.
Instead of our traditional hotpot dinner, this year we decided to have a potluck. Everyone will be gathering after leaving work at 6 PM, especially since we don’t have the time for a regular hotpot.
Thankfully, one thing stays unchanged each year – my aunt’s signature Dry Laska. I only get to savor it once a year, so I will make it a priority to cut down on other things just to make enough room for this deliciousness.
