Pot Bless Lunch To Celebrate The 1st Day Of New Year 2020

There is no grand celebration for the 1st day of New Year 2020. We started off the new year with a pot bless gathering in my house. My friend and I came up with some nice home cooked food for the 4 of us. I cooked 3 items and my friend contributed 2 items for our new year lunch.
 My 1st dish - Black Vinegar Pork Leg with wood fungus and lots of ginger slices.
 My 2nd dish - Stewed Chinese cabbage with nam yue (fermented bean curd).
 My 3rd dish - Egg omelette with chopped kale.
My friend bought the kale and gave half to me.
 Dish cooked by my friend - Sliced arrow head stewed with minced pork and kale.
 My friend also bought some roast pork and sausage from the market.
*     *     *     *     *
We had a very satisfying and filling lunch without any rice.
After washing up, we went to a shopping mall to walk off some calories.
 As usual, I am drawn to this pillar aquarium with live fishes swimming in it.
 I was happy taking snapshots while my hubby and friends shopped.
 I don't know the name of these fishes.
 Some stopped to watch the fishes but I was the only one taking pictures.
 Hubby and friends joined me after their shopping.
I enjoyed watching the fishes swimming graciously in the water.

Linking to Saturday's Critters.

"In a word, what I'm saying is, Grow up. You're kingdom subjects.
Now live like it. Live out your God-created identity.
Live generously and graciously toward others,
the way God lives toward you."
(Matthew 5:48, The Message-MSG)

  1. Already salivating at your first dish! I support celebrating at home... guess popular spots would be crowded anyway.
