When Tet (Vietnamese Lunar New Year) arrives in January, it always throws me off. I'm not prepared! I didn't make anything for my relatives like I usually do in previous years.
I don't think my aunts and uncles were prepared either because this year's food exchange was much lighter compared to previous years.
Nonetheless, I sure appreciated the homemade keo me (Vietnamese sesame candy), banh tet (Vietnamese sticky rice cakes), dua mon (Vietnamese pickles), and kimchee they gave me.
Here's hoping that you're prepared and that it's a great year for you and yours.

2 years ago today, Indonesian Beef Rendang.
3 years ago today, Chai Black Tea.
4 years ago today, French Bread Pizza.
5 years ago today, a cold frost decimated most of my garden, except for my iceberg roses and three strawberries.
