Chap Goh Mei 2012

Enough of expensive lunches and dinners at restaurants and the crazy long wait during the 15-day period CNY. Enough of expensive yee sang. My hubs' aunt made her own healthy yee sang and we had homecooked food at home on Chap Goh Mei.

Hubs' relatives came over for dinner and as usual, we had a dining table filled to the edge with dishes - roast duck, steamed chicken, steamed sausages with arrow roots, char siew, onion omelette, 2 types of fish dish, veggie and soup.

Our homemade healthy yee sang made up of julienned radish, turnip, carrot, pear, parsley, lime juice, plum sauce, toasted sesame seeds, ground peanuts, pomelo, and we replaced the fattening deep fried rectangular wheats with sugar-free corn flakes. Very yummy! Everyone tossed and ate without the guilt. Yep, the restaurant type of yee sang is fattening with loads of gluey sweet plum sauce, oil and deep fried wheat rectangular chips.

There were 2 large plates of yee sang and the kids had their very own plate to toss too!
