A lovely gift out of the blue for my friend Donnamarie of this wonderful little cookbook precipitated this adventure. And it's results were pure gold!
I love how this author also give you options--the very sorts of things I would do on my own, but so many cooks fail to consider. It's your dinner--adjust accordingly! For example: I didn't choose to fry them. I cooked them in the oven. 450˚
5 minutes on side A, 5 minutes on side B. 3 minutes back on side A. Then I
turned on the broiler. Continued with side A for 2 more minutes, then side B
for 4 minutes, watching to perfect level of char.
The side "salad" is made of red rice noodles, with carrot, purple cabbage, scallions, peanuts and Thai basil leaves. On all scores and wonderful meal!
And a day later? Another great meal. Thai Pork Pattie sandwich!
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
