A Good Food Weekend

19 Mar

Here are some wonderful things I did this weekend:

We bought a new cookbook – Kylie Kwong’s Simple Chinese Cooking. Everything in it looks amazing – and super easy but delicious! Perfect for mid-week cooking. I’m especially excited to make the sweetcorn chicken soup and the home-style fried eggs with oyster sauce and chilli.

The Queen made snapper pies for dinner – they were divine! She found the recipe here, but apparently it is the real recipe for the famous snapper pie at the Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay! She added mashed potato on top instead of pastry – Oh they were so good – belle, the beast, the king, queen and I ate them for a delicious Sunday night dinner.

We went to yum cha and accidentally had the most delicious salt and pepper lobster. From a distance we thought it was crab and only realised once we had it, and our ticket was stamped, and it was all too late  that we had in fact ordered lobster! It was delicious, of course. Super fresh and a great way to eat lobster – it was chopped up so the flesh could be pulled straight out of the shell, and the super thin, crispy salt and pepper batter was perfect with it! And luckily the King was paying 🙂

I went out to celebrate my friend Cinderella’s birthday and had a lovely night but may have had a few two many vodka, lime sodas. When we arrived home we had the most perfect midnight snack after a night out – these frozen Costco dumplings!

I went to Princess Jasmine’s house for dinner and she made a delicious feast of dukkah-marinated lamb, haloumi, rocket salad and broccoli with preserved lemons, yum! My other good friend Snow White brought some caramel popcorn she had made, but she had gone one extra amazing step further and made it salted caramel popcorn. Oh my god it was good. But so addictive – I was overcome with the need to consume a lot of it very quickly and so forgot to take a photo, but it looked just like the picture below. Must get the recipe!

Hope you had a wonderful and food-filled weekend too,

    Yes, you had way too many vodkas! The dumplings after is an inspired idea! Amazing!
