Fried Rice Parcel

Fried Rice

It's fair to say that my fried rice intake has gone up since we moved to Thailand. Actually  I can't remember making or eating it more than a handful of times back home. Apparently I'm now making up for lost time as it has become one of our staple dinners.

Food taster no.1 thinks this is the best fried rice we've made. I obviously can't compete with our favourite street stall but for those of you who don't have the luxury of buying a 30 baht Khao Phat from a Thai woman with a magic wok, this is a cheap and easy alternative.

Pancakes three ways...


We're out of gas for our hob (we have no kitchen, just a single hob ring and a gas canister - it's a sad state of affairs) so it looks like we might not be having pancakes on Shrove Tuesday. To be fair though, pancakes are a fairly regular breakfast for us so don't feel too sorry for us!

So instead of making something I thought I'd reblog three pancake recipes that I've made in the past. They are all sweet pancakes because, well I just have a sweet tooth!

Rum 'n' Raisin Rice Pudding

Rice Pudding

This should really be 'coconut rice pudding with rum soaked raisins' but that didn't sound so catchy!

I like coconut. I like it shaved, desiccated, as coconut water, in a bounty... but most of all I love coconut milk.

And there's loads of it here in Thailand. Granted, it might also have strange balls of gloop in it but there is a lot of coconut milk around. This is great for me and I'm growing a lovely round coconut belly.

So since we don't eat enough rice I decided to make rice pudding. I feel like rice pudding has got a bad rep - too many school dinner memories perhaps. But splash a bit of rum in there and hey, this is like no school dinner I have ever had.
