Happy Chinese New Year!

It's the year of the Rat! This may sound kinda yucky, but in our culture there is always a way of looking on the bright side. Rats are intelligent and charming, and quick on their feet. And just because you're born in that year, doesn't mean you look like a rat, thank goodness.


We celebrate the lunar new year with noodles, which represent long life! Since many of you may be gluten free, I like to substitute spaghetti squash for the noodles. You can also substitute zoodles, made from zucchini and a spiralizer, but I love the simplicity and crunch of fresh spaghetti squash. My sister had cooked with this squash before, but she never knew that she could use a fork to make the squash magically turn into noodles (which have the yummy texture of a thin rice noodle).


Our family celebrated the new year, with veggies potstickers, and veggies on a bed of spaghetti squash noodles. Then we went around the table sharing what each of us would like to try this year of the rat- something that we'd never tried before. My friend Claire wants to learn the guitar, Fran wants to adopt a senior dog, Kris wants to do a TED talk, and Riki and I would love to try jumping from an airplane!


In this year of the rat, what would you like to do that you've never done before?
