I see RTE book is coming out in October and is available for pre order. I ordered mine from Big W as I hope they will be cheaper than some other places. ;D ;D

So did I cookie (for DD2], BigW was much cheaper than the others. Now to wait until October for it, at least it will be here before Christmas so that I can read it before passing it on. It will sell plenty of copies Iím sure.

Yes and I donít know how they can be so far apart in pricing cookie. If anyone orders from the other suggestions then finds out how much the BigW copy is theyíll be kicking themselves.

Red Vietnamese Fried Rice
« Reply #144 on: September 18, 2022, 05:02:43 am »
This is a good, quick recipe to make ... but be warned, it moves so fast you have to have everything ready, measured out and in cooking order before you even start!

https://www.recipetineats.com/red-vietnamese-fried-rice/#wprm-recipe-container-72222

When we lived in Hong Kong there was one restaurant that our site locals used to buy us all lunches from (our work site was on an 'island' - in reality a slightly large'ish rock with no facilities) and one of the lunches they occasionally brought back was a tomato fried rice.  I have tried to emulate it ever since without any luck, and this is the nearest I have come to it.  I had to drop out the fish sauce in RTE's recipe, of course, but added an extra tsp of soy sauce instead.  I also added a couple of finely chopped semi dried tomatoes and some of the oil from the SDT jar and got pretty close to my old favourite from HKG days.

Isnít it great when you find an old favourite Marina. I might give it a go with fine vermicelli and prawns.

Well done Marina.
I made her Greek salad for the second time last night. It is quick, easy and consists of things we like. DH isn’t fond of the feta but he can pick round that. https://www.recipetineats.com/greek-salad/

I included lettuce to make it go further. We are having leftovers of it tonight with quiche.

Fried cabbage with noodles and bacon from RTEís recipe book page 57.
I made half the recipe and did use the bacon to add some flavour but discarded it when adding the onions and garlic.  Tasty but a bit dry for me, I think it needs a sauce but that could just be me. Iím going to add some to soup and make a carbonara sauce for another meal.
