Seafood Hot Pot

Last week the weather was gloomy, and I was a little bit under the weather. I just want some soup or something that will make me sweat so I feel better. I decided to make Thai hot pot, aka La^u? Thai'. It was the yummy dinner ever and my cold is gone as well. :-)

Vietnamese Crepes

This is one of my favorite Vietnamese dish. I can eat two of them at the same time and still want more.  They tasted so good with ton of organic herbs and Vietnamese dipping lemony garlic fish sauce.


My hubby likes extra crunchy skin.


Some folks like mung bean, but you can put anything you want. I even put mushroom for the fillings.


It always turn out so perfectly!




This one is mine. I love to eat wrapping with all the exotic herbs. :-)


Enjoy!

Happy New Year - Lamb Anyone?

I never cook lamb before. Why? Well, because I don't really like it. It's has a very interesting smell. I guess I am not used to eating it.  I ordered it one time at the restaurant and that was it.  My hubby on the other hand, loved lamb.  Anyhow, I decided to roast the leg of lamb today because my Nanny told me it's really good and Giant's has it from Australia or New Zealand.  She told me how she did it with rosemary rub and so on.  

Yesterday, I did a little research and started to follow the recipe below.  It turned out perfect. I loved it. I guess it really depend on how you marinade the lamb and it won't have the strong smell. 


Check out my roasted lamb.  Nice presentation eh? :-)


I made a little bit of pasta to go with it as well.


I just love the whole platter with the garnish.  Not bad for $20 bucks.



I used this recipe.
