Chicken, Sausage and Lentil Stew

 

Chicken, Sausage and Lentil Stew  | Thaimeupkitchen.comEven with six years of being a Londoner under my belt, there are still some quintessentially English things that will always remain a novelty to the American in me. Red telephone booths, London Bridge is really Tower Bridge, calling crosswalks zeb-bras and not zee-bras, and the reactions I get when I say ‘fanny pack’ are always priceless.

Also, as a matter of principle, I only take the paper from cockney geezers that call me Gorgeous or Love. That’s about 90% of them, but that is not the point.

Chicken and Seaweed Noodle Soup

People always ask me, “Why would you move here from California?”

And my response is always, for the weather.

“You’ll never stay warm with just that salad in you,” my work colleagues would tsk tsk at me during my first winter here. So I have been happily tucking into my antidote of second helpings of potato dauphinoise, followed by a dirty sticky 5 million calorie toffee pudding. 

What can I say? I am cold. 

Very Cold

Roasted Red Pork with Gravy | Thaimeupkitchen.comShowing love to all the single ladies (all the single ladies) on Valentine’s Day.

In my thirty-odd years, I have had my fair share of single Valentine’s Days. They numbered more than the lovey couple ones, even though I’m married now (whoa, married)! Of course, I appreciate the jewelry/chocolates/funny card bit, but before I met G, I was THE Single Girl.

And I loved it.

Gung Hay Fat Choy! Celebrate Chinese New Year with these babies as a delicious starter.

Potstickers are one of my favourite foods. In fact, if potstickers were their own food group, they would be the foundation of my food pyramid, the tallest bar in the graph, the largest triangle in my pie chart. Hmm pie. But let’s not get off subject here or speak of geometry. Nobody wants that.
