Steamed Rooster Shaped Prawn Ball with Egg Tofu

It has been quite a while since I last blogged! 

Taking care of an infant again isn't an easy task, the night feeding (waking up almost every 2 hours), frequent change of diapers, constant attention seeking... well the list goes on. But, all that will pass one day, so I treasure every moment I have with her!

And now, finally, all the 3 kids are well asleep, and I am back to my computer again! 

Long story short, as Chinese New Year is approaching, we bid good bye to the year of monkey and welcome year of rooster. Here is a dish that you can prepare for your reunion dinner to surprise your family member. Simple, healthy and definitely child approved!
