Prep Week

oh hello February. not going to lie, I am happy to be out of the worlds longest month ever. this month is going to be a little crazy but a lot of fun at the same time. And I am kicking of this hectic month with the 3rd annual Chinese New Years dinner i do for one of the deans on campus. it is one of these events that always kind of intimidates me because of the large menu. It is a menu full of great Asian inspired hors d'oeuvres and desserts. And anyone who knows asian foods knows that they are known for their expansive ingredient lists. It's always a little of this and a little of that :) so this whole week is dedicated to prepping for this dinner. I have two years of experience doing this dinner now and i feel like this one might be the best

The last couple of weeks i have been racking my brain on what this year's dinner should look like. Most of the Chinese New years decorations you find out there can be a bit cheesy so I am really trying to find that happy medium between elegant and yet still festive. I felt like i was hitting a bit of a roadblock in terms of inspiration but i think i finally have a direction and i am sticking to it.

2013 is the Year of the Snake. And although Snakes can many times be seen as an enemy or demon they are actually considered a symbol of luck. Are you feeling lucky?

a little CNY inspiration 

hope you have a simply fantastic monday!
