Chinese New Year series: cookies and snacks
February 16, 2018 3:31am CST
Besides having the reunion dinner with the family at Chinese New Year's eve, we always visit relatives and friends during Chinese New Year, or they come and visit us. As a tradition, we always give a "goodie bag" to a family that we visit. The goodie bag usually contains cookies, snacks, roasted peanuts and Mandarin oranges. I guess mostly are food. When someone visit us and give us a goodie bag, due to courtesy, we always return a goodie bag too. We also serve these cookies and snacks when someone visit us. Hence we are always busy preparing the Chinese New Year cookies or snacks. Some prefer to make these cookies themselves. My mom and mom-in-law always make lots of cookies, though they still buy some. I guess eating these cookies and snacks is one of my favorite things to do during Chinese New Year, as we don't usually eat these food in other days. Have you tried any Chinese New Year food?
