Welcome Home!

Good Food for Good People.

My daughter Alex is home! Yay! and double Yay…!

Three months in Europe and now she’s back. I’m so happy to have her home. She had an awesome time and I finally got to wear the chef’s hat she bought me from Paris – I wear it every time I cook…It’s awesome!!!

She did however come home to the news that my beautiful mum, who taught me to cook, had suffered a heart attack the week before. Mum will be fine but it has taken a lot out of her. She is one tough cookie so I have no doubt that she will be up and doing her thing soon enough but for now she needs rest…and apparently, Salmon Mornay. She asked me to make her Salmon Mornay for lunch the day after she got home from the hospital – she’s a funny woman!

Alex also came home to the house having been totally rearranged and one less person living with us…15,000 less DVDs,  no more major hi fi equipment or horror movie figurines everywhere.

Our place has a very relaxed vibe. It’s bright, airy and spacious. We love it…

To celebrate her homecoming and our new space we all got together and enjoyed some tasty treats and some very nice wine.

Here’s what we had:

Hoisin and Soy Pork Meatballs

Lime and Coriander Chicken

Sweet  Chilli Prawns

Vietnamese Coleslaw

Steamed Jasmine Rice

Lima and Coriander - always a favourite on chicken...

Could've made hundreds of these and still wouldn't have been enough!

  1. What a gorgeous spread! Yay for Alex coming home! Sorry to hear that your mother had a recent heart attack. It always brings home the reality of how fragile we are when something like that happens to a loved one. Glad that she’s doing ok, hopefully she’ll continue to get her strength back with that delicious cooking that you’re doing for her!! The lime and coriander chicken looks so, so good xx
