Stir fry Glass Noodles with Vegetables

恭喜!恭喜!新年如意!情人節快樂!Chinese New Year & Valentine's Day fall on the same day this year. Bring us double happiness in this celebration. It is definitely makes you and your loved ones more meaningful this year. Have you done all your preparations and waiting anxiously for the New Year to come? I would enjoy admiring the Chinese New Year decorations in the shopping mall and also in most of the Chinese houses. There are indeed elegant and full of the CNY atmosphere. Red has always become the favourite colour for CNY, especially those lanterns, fans, items made from red packets (ang pow) and plenty of decorative stuffs. It brings you prosperous and happy feelings. Even though my family main celebration is Christmas but we do have re-union dinner to symbolize the festival. This year, I spend sometime making CNY lanterns, fishes & butterflies from red packets (Ang Pow) to introduce this festival to my son, my son loves it to bits, especially the butterflies. He even asked me transforms those red packets to "Transformers".... phewwwwww..... But it is real fun!

Our local radio station is promoting and advertising plenty of CNY advertisements during this season. Most of them are good advertisements, associate with the festive season, their products and also creating awareness on re-union with family and "Healthy Eating". One of the advertisement really captured my attention! It is from one of the cooking oil company. The advertisement transform the meaning of having healthy home-cooked food with their healthy cooking oil. It brought you the message of having a good year ahead with "healthy cooking" especially during this CNY. In this way, we can assure our family to have a healthy year to cherish their dreams and wishes. For me, this advertisement is the best among all to promote and to inspire healthy cooking awareness to the listeners.

Through this advertisement, it actually brings me some ideas and awareness to opt for something healthy for this coming CNY re-union dinner. One of the dishes in my list is "Simple stir fry glass noodles with eggs, shredded vegetables and chicken" adapted from my good friend's recipe (Food-4tots), Simplified "Kwai Fa Chee" (桂花翅) This cook is a "health conscious" Mommy and she has plenty of creative, healthy yet delicious recipes, specially catered for toddlers and kids. It has become an inspiration for Mommies to cook at home with her simple, healthy and practical recipes!

Start your first day of CNY with some healthy home cooked food to have a "Good Health" ahead. Not forgetting of having a healthy meal with your loved ones during this Valentine's Day and enjoy the beautiful moment!

Wishing all of you, a "HEALTHY" & "PROSPEROUS"
Chinese New Year! 
新年健康!龍精猛!& Happy Valentine's Day! 情人節快樂!


Recipe adapted & modified from Food-4Tots - simplied Kwai Fa Chee

200g cabbage (shredded finely)
40g carrot (shredded finely)
60g chicken fillet, cut into strips
20g glass noodle (粉丝) – soaked till softened, pressed dry and cut into 6-7cm long sections

2. Add in chicken and stir fry for a minute. Then add in carrot and 3 tbsp water. Stir fry with high heat.
