Blooming Flower Stuffed Mushroom

Do you notice that when Chinese New Year is approaching, flowers are being sold everywhere in Chinatown? I have no idea how does this tradition came about, but I do always see my mom decorating the whole house with big pretty flowers in giant flower pots. My younger self love to make fishes and cranes from red ang pows and hang them on those flowers as well as some potted plants we had in the garden.

I would love to do that with my kids, but too bad... our house is small and without a garden, we hardly has any plant with us. 

So, the best idea that I can come out with, is to decorate these stuffed mushroom with pretty flower blossom that immediately bring out the Chinese New Year mood. Well they do look pretty cute, don't you think so?

If you are still thinking of what to cook for your reunion dinner, I hope you will give this a try!
