All of a sudden I realized about 15 people are coming over for new year dinner. It was one of those things where friends have company coming in and then a couple of extra relatives decided to come and, well, you know how that goes.
So wise internets, please tell me what I can cook in advance. I am going to make char siu and char siu bao, jiaozi, some kind of bean dish and a green salad. The fish has been rejected because of no easy preparation method. Some of my guests are going to arrive at my house before I do, since I have to work. I will probably also make a big bowl of chirashi sushi. (Because any of the kneeses are acceptable and because it’s easy.)
You get extra points if the dish is Chinese and if it is easy to prepare from easily available foodstuffs.
I might end up ordering some pizzas.
