On a quest for a golden ox in Chinatown today, I ran into two lions. No lie. These things happen in Chinatown.
Sadly, I didn't find the golden ox I was seeking (not every quest ends in success) but you can see the lions for yourself — I caught them on video.
The dancers are from New York United Lion & Dragon Dance Troupe. I particularly like the way they flick their ears and pay attention to lion-like mannerisms.
No recipe today, but I highly recommend you stop over at Food for the Thoughtless and check out Michael's Misfortune Cookies. Hilarious.
Meanwhile, I'll be back on track next week with a whole load of pre-Valentine chocolate posts.
