Happy Chinese New Year!

Today is the first day of the Year of the Rat. During the Chinese New Year, a special emphasis is placed on the symbology of different foods. I thought it would be fun to see how much you know about this food symbolism. I'll list an ingredient and you choose what it usually represents. Sound fun? Get started!

dried tofu is OK to eat--just not fresh tofu b/c of it's white color. I really should have done better on this considering I lived in China, oh well. I guess I should stock up on tangerines before attempting my Chinese new year brunch of dumplings. I'm worried they will all fall to pieces.
