Chinese New Year Recipes and Snacks
Cooking with a toddler can be an experience but think of it as a humourous
anecdote to share at a later date!
Butterfly shaped cookies can be made by having the child twist opposite
corners of a wonton wrapper to resemble a butterfly. An adult can fry them
in oil and, while they are cooling, the child can sprinkle sugar on them.
One time, on a listserv, there was an idea from a teacher who had young
students fill wonton wrappers with cut up peaches and brown sugar. The
children wet and pressed the edges of the wrapper together. The teacher
fried the wontons in a wok and the children loved them.
Of course, there's always the chicken and vegetable stirfry!
The picture book, Cleversticks, (ISBN 0-00-663855-4) can be read and
everyone can practise using chopsticks to eat noodles.
