In Melbourne, Australia at the moment, we’re supposed to be having Summer! Not only have we only had a handful of warm days over 25˚C since Spring started, but we’ve had a colder and wetter start to Summer than we did Winter!!
I am so sorry it has been a few weeks since my last post! My bad! It wasn’t really my fault, I was having troubles with my internet provider – spent a total of three hours on the phone with them over three weeks! It’s all sorted now and I’m back in full swing of things! Hope I didn’t leave you all hanging too long, guessing what dish I was preparing and getting ready to share with you!
During the time I’ve been ‘out of action’ I have been doing quite a lot of experimenting with food and different flavours. I have come up with quite a few recipes that I can’t wait to share with you all!
I just love cooking stir fries. I find there’s nothing simpler to make. They’re easy to prepare and they’re an unbelievably healthy meal for the whole family! Within 15 minutes you’re eating dinner – so quick to cook!
Stir fries are typically an Asian cuisine but they can be found all over the world with many variations. A stir fry, to me, is basically the quick frying of meat and vegetables to create an amazing tasting dish.
Did you know that everyone can speak the language of food, even if you can’t understand the language the other person is speaking!?!
While in Thailand, staying at a small resort Baan Mai on Lon Island (Koh Lon), just off the south coast of Phuket Island, I had the opportunity to cook in the kitchen with a Thai chef. It would have to be up there with one of the best experiences I have ever had!
Miss Food Fairy and her husband are heading to Thailand for 3 luxurious weeks of sun, fun, food & relaxation tomorrow!
This is our yearly getaway – we haven’t had a holiday since our honeymoon last year!
Looking forward to some amazing food – I may just try my hand at a Thai cooking class while I’m over there! Wish me luck! We’ll also relax our bodies with massages and sitting on the beach having a few Pina Coladas. There’s no mobiles and no computers – heaven!
We’ll be looking forward to eating some amazing, fresh food in some little, off-the-beaten-track restaurants and while walking the street night markets where we’ll try something different. There’s nothing like real Thai food! All the spice and chilli and handmade noodles and the freshest herbs and fruit – oh yeah! I’m excited!
