Thanks for your comments, it's so nice to know how different kind of christmas food we have... (and i think that maybe in Finland the certain Christmas food is more important tradition than in some other countries)

 

I like our christmas food but now i've had enough of it and want some spicy chinese food today!!!smile.gif

I'm totally with you - a nice bit of spice and love the spice of chinese food. But I remember having the other. After three weeks of travelling through asia with most of it being in China I just wanted to eat somnething that I could cut up with a knife and fork instead of chopsticks!

Yum, I love Mexican food!!!

We ALWAYS go to a Mexican restaurant on Christmas Eve. Tamales is traditional, but I prefer enchiladas, lol. We tried to make tamales one year, but they didn't turn out so good - too thick and doughy, could have been the many pitchers of margaritas consumed while cooking, but we'll never know roll.gif

I holidayed with friends for the first time and they have some food items in their traditions that I'd never had before. Cold pork pie at midnight after Church on Christmas Eve with cranberry sauce. Oysters (still alive and freshly shucked) and prune buns and figs (who knew they looked like sphincters?) and tomato juice with bits of celery and peppers cut up into it and seafood chowder (MOST amazing) and a lamb sausage that was EVERYWHERE and some Ukrainian delicacies from the neighbours that I can't even name but were super yummy and Irish soda bread ...

 

Some of it I loved, some of it I tried and didn't care for and some of it I politely said NOT ON YOUR LIFE! (oysters). But I loved being a part of someone elses traditions!

oh, sorry!! i know what its like to have a yankering for something, and cant quite scratch the itch!!

 

u knw, i just couldnt get to the restaurant, so i made some pea pods and pearl barley with carrots at home, then just put a little teriyaiki sauce on them and they were so fresh--it was very good...

 

I mixed in a little white meat chicked for protein and voila! instant meal.

can you use the chopsticks? was it too hard to figure them out? and didnt any place have utensils? what kind of foods did you eat in china?--this sounds fascinating!!
