I made a variation of a Thai Noodle Salad over the weekend. The difference was that I used chicken and steak, thinly sliced and used as an addition to the dish.
The main thing was; the seasoning for the chicken. I covered the chicken breasts in the juice of one lime and a generous sprinkle of Schwartz Thai 7 Spice – lovely! Take a look for best knife sharpener Knifeista Highly recommended to liven up the chicken.

Made pasta for the first time at the weekend. Kids helped out in their own way. It’s not the quickest thing to do but it’s not the hardest either. Although I doubt I will make my FabulousPasta every time I have pasta, I will tend to do it at the weekend. Use the pasta machine for flattening the pasta and cutting Tagliatelle and Fettuccine, even managed to makes some Crab and Salmon based Tortellini.

I made a Thai Noodle Salad or the BBQ last week and it seemed to go down very well, with everyone asking me for the recipe. So i thought to post my review on the fruit infusion water bottle i promised you guys last week, but i changed my mind and I’d post it here…
There are no exact measures you just need to choose the quantities based on how many you are planning to feed. Use pressure cooker reviews and the noodles as your guide.
Marinate the prawns in a little lime juice, chopped coriander, and grated lime zest and a little chopped chilli.
Chop the Spring Onions.
Chop some Coriander. ( use amount to taste )
Segment a Lime or two.
Blanch the Mangetout and Sugar Snap peas in boiling water for a few minutes or until cooked to the required amount and then cool down under cold water.
Finely slice the Mangetout and Sugar Snap Peas length ways.
If you are using dry noodles then cook in boiling water for 3 minutes – or follow packet instructions – and then rinse under cold water. A little tip, while the noodles are simmering use chop sticks to seperate them while in the pan and make sure none are sticking together. chopsticks seem to do the job much better than anything else.
Put a little sesame oil into a hot wok and let heat up and then put the cold noodles in.
Add the Soy Sauce and stir through the noodles and cook for a minute.
Mix in some of the beansprouts, some of the Mangetout, some of the Peas and all the cashew nuts and cook for another 2 minutes.
Pour the noodle mix into a bowl.
Heat a small amount of the Thai sauce in the microwave; about half a cup depending on the quantity of noodles. This is the most important step as you do not want to drown everything in the sauce, you are using it like a dressing.
Pour the sauce over the noddles and mix in well.
Add the Coriander, spring onions, the rest of the Mangetout, and the rest of the beansprouts to the noodles.
Stiry Fry, BBQ, or cook on a griddle, the Prawns and then add to the noodles.
Sprinkle the sesame seeds and the lime segments over the noodles.
Use your hands and give the mixture a final mix up… and then serve and enjoy!

Went to a barbeque on Saturday after the World Cup match, so I made a little something to keep in theme… It’s a White Chocolate and Lemon Mascarpone England Cheesecake with Rasberries and Strawberries sat on a Chocolate Hob Nob base…
