    For all of Asia, this is when we have new year celebrations.  It's much more food centric than than the end of december.

    Nice lotus root! I've only had it once in hot pot.

    Making dumplings/wontons for sure, and likely gonna buy some sweet Tangyuan (sticky rice balls w/sweet filling). Everything else is up to whimsy/energy levels.

    You can't have new years without fruit, especially citrus

    Blood orange beef
