Eye of the Tiger

Chinese New Year is on Sunday, February 14.  While researching Valentines Day craft ideas I stumbled upon the cutest fortune cookies; they are made of felt!  Inspired, I found more great ideas to celebrate the 'Year of the Tiger' including delicious recipes.  Kung hei fat choy! Happy New Year!

Pork Lettuce Wraps with Grapefruit from foodnetwork.com

More ideas?
Clean the house to "sweep away bad luck"
Decorate with red for good luck
Bunch bamboo stalks together and wrap in red ribbon for a simple centerpiece
Serve your entree in take-out containers with chopsticks
Offer guests oranges, which symbolize wealth and good luck
Distribute red envelopes of money to children (that's sure to be a crowd-pleaser)
