Lamb winter dishes

Hi everybody, I want to share 2 lamb dishes with you guys, they are must-eat winter dishes in my family! I actually ate some of the leftover as lunch today. 

The first one is lamb dumplings. I made them with my roommates during the Lunar New Year Festival 2021. We made so much so we can froze some batches of them and eat them slowly throughout the final weeks. (Yes we are foodies but we are too lazy to cook from starch everyday, I am sure you can relate at some point.)  

rabbit and dragon

In today's class, we discussed three zodiac animals--the rabbit, dragon, and snake. It's interesting that how ancient people created these folklores to personalize animals.  What is more interesting is that until today, these zodiac animals still representing the given characteristics and people would associate others, who were born in a particular year, with corresponding characteristics / personalities of that specific zodiac animal. For example, rabbits are associated with soft, tame, and feminine, which, unfortunately, most of them are undesirable in modern days.
