Happy Year of the Horse, of Course, of Course!

Last Thursday was the first new moon after the first full moon after the winter solstice. So Friday was Chinese New Year! I had the usual foods and the usual crowd.

Linden supervises the wrapping of the jiao-zis:

She doesn't leave her post, even as the crowd thickens and the camera fogs up:

I am now an expert in roasting these beautiful chickens:

JK's assignment: the noodles to ensure our longevity!

My wrap stars kept going, even as I cooked the first batch:

Autumn and Linden assumed their normal positions:

Who are good dowgs?
Them are good dowgs!
Who wants a yummy chummy?
Them wants yummy chummies!

A dog's eye view of proceedings:

Group shot with awkward camera timer!

Final body count: ten humans and three dogs!

13 heads!
26 eyes!
32 feet!
100 fingers!
And 148 toes! One hundred and forty-eight toes! Ah, ah, ah! Vahnderful!

Dear PhD, not 13 heads, I only found 12 -- three dogs and nine humans. Somebody has two heads?

@mdr, I surely had 10 humans. Maybe you miscounted because all white people look alike. :)

Happy Chinese New Year ! Looks like the 3 Quality Control experts (the 4 legged variety) had it all well under control :)

Yeah, they sure do, isn't it odd :)
