Shrimp Fried Rice

Have you ever had a Chinese Hot Pot? I have heard of them and wanted to make one to celebrate Chinese New Year, that is until I read the actual recipe.  First of all, I do not own a skillet to place in the center of the table to heat the broth. Secondly, I am not dipping raw meats into said heated broth with multiple people…..

Chinese New Year starts February 19th and runs until February 17th 2016.  More importantly, it is the Year of the Sheep/Goat!! I am born in the Year of the Sheep, so this is my year, and boy am I looking forward to that, lol. By the way, goat and sheep are the same word in Chinese. 😉

2015 Year of the Sheep | cookingwithcurls.com

Those born in the Year of the Sheep are generous, thoughtful, and mindful of other’s wishes. Making other people makes Sheep happy. They are trustworthy and make great friends {they are good at keeping secrets}.

Those born in the Year of the Sheep are intellectual individuals who are good at coming up with clever ideas. Sheep are artistic and loyal, and love being surrounded by nice things. For them, living in balance is accomplished by living in a peaceful and harmonious environment.  Sheep are not materialistic, although they are big spenders that enjoy spending their money on food and things that comfort them.

A Sheep’s weakness is being over-anxious and worrying about everything.  I can attest to that one!! Those born in the Year of the Sheep should be around people that they can always lean on. They belong with someone that understands the kind of life that they want to live. The best matches for a Sheep are those who were born in the Year of The Rabbit, The Year of The Horse or The Year of The Pig.

Famous Sheep include; Julie Roberts, Pamela Anderson, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, and Barbara Walters.

    This shrimp fried rice looks amazing! I already pinned it! The recipe looks very similar on how I make my chicken fried rice. In fact I would rather make Chinese food at home because I don’t use msg. Thanks for sharing. Stopping by from #winddownwednesdays
