Today was a lovely day off- well lovely in a foodie way, not a weather way, as it was tipping it down outside! A good excuse to stay cuddled up for the day.
For lunch we had spicy lettuce wraps from a Gordon Ramsay recipe, slightly adapted as using only pork mince and not the usual mixture of beef and pork mince.
The dipping sauce was a very hot, sour and tangy concoction which worked really well with the spicy mince and lettuce. We have had this several times before and it is always really filling, I think because it is so highly flavoured. Really lovely.
For dinner a recipe from the Bowler Meatball Book. Green Chilli Chicken Balls with a coconut chilli sauce and rice.
As always I can not take a good looking photo! And actually this was not the best meal I’ve ever made… The sauce was delicious- good Thai green Chilli paste and coconut milk, cooked really thick as more of a dressing than a sauce. But the balls were a little dry- I did make it with thigh meat hoping this would make it more tasty, but it did not seem to help. I may well have over cooked it, this is not out of the realms of possibility, so I may try it again and see if I can do a better version.
