Lunch Date

September 3rd, 2012 at 05:48 pm

I'm about to go out to meet up with DH for lunch. 2 weeks ago he asked me to go out for lunch in the city but I did not want to go out because it was soo cold. It's amazing how quickly the weather can change. Today it will get to 22 degrees Celcius, so it will be a beautiful day.

I've got my pedometer on already and will be doing a lot of walking around in the city. I hoping I can get to 10,000 steps today.

I've been having a lot of salad lately and been trying new ones. Last night I made Thai green mango salad, it was really nice. According to DH "it's a keeper", which means he'd like to have it again in the future. I put shredded carrot, cashews, string beans, mint and coriander. I was suppose to put tomatoes in it but we didn't have any. For the sauce I put chilli, fish sauce, lemon juice and palm sugar. I used the mortar and pestle to crush and mix the sauce together.

    Salad sounds great to me. Do you slice the mango very thin? Is it a pickled mango or fresh? I'd love an excuse to buy some cashews. Wink

    Hi Joan,
    I actually just used the grater to shred both the fresh green mango and the carrot. I was too lazy to take out the mandolin slicer. I think it will look nicer if you use the mandolin or cut them into very fine julienne.
