happy year of the dog!
today begins Year 4703 -- or possibly 4704, depending on who's answering -- according to the lunar calendar. the new year begins on the second new moon after the winter solstice, so that's why it's never a fixed day. according to the Chinese zodiac of twelve animals and four elements, it's the Year of the Fire Dog... which i suppose makes it the Year of the Hot Dog... in any case, there will be no char siu bao making this year (my usual celebratory food) as i just started a new show that will most likely be at least 70 hours a week, so apologies if HadashiWorld is a little silent over the next few weeks. remind me in March to make a belated new year's batch of steamed pork buns.
at least i'm wearing red all this week...happy new year everyone!

Happy New Year! Send me some Char Siu Bao in the mail when you do make them, they sound yummy! Or, if they don't ship well, I could possibly come down to where you live and eat them.
(Congrats on the new show, too!)
