Monday is Chinese New Year – and the start of the Year of the Dragon. I am not exactly sure what this means for me, but I do know that the Chinese Dragon is the symbol of success and happiness… so bring it on!
My Chinese astrological sign is actually the goat – not nearly as exciting as a dragon. Apparently we goats can be charming company and are elegant and artistic, but we are the first to complain about things. Hmmm… that’s something to think about. I also read today that a goat will do well as an actor, gardener, or beachcomber. Wow… beach-combing! Seriously, a new career to consider. I wonder if I could find success and happiness as a beachcomber… I guess I need to visit a few beaches this year to find out.
In the meantime, we’ll be celebrating Chinese New Year with a few close friends and some wonderful food. In case you decide to cook up your own celebration, here are a few recipes you might enjoy:
Happy Cooking and Happy Year of the Dragon!
