With our variety of volunteers we found that one young lady, Jing-Wan, is a senior in High School from China.
After speaking to her, she and her mother came to help us cook a Chinese dinner for the Chinese New Year. Some of the foods could be made ahead of time, but the spring balls had to be made on the day of Chinese New Year, January 31st.
All were very interested in the food that was prepared, since there is so much preparation for Chinese food. We had only one taker for chop sticks, Sami.
I think the one thing they truly could understand about the Chinese New Year is that this year is the “Year of the Horse,” but for the Navajos, I would say every year is the year of the horse!
