Spicy Carrot And Basil Soup

I originally made this soup with 2 birds eye chili's! It was really hot, but goooood!  So if you love hot food put 2 chili's in the soup, if you don't like it hot make sure to remove the seeds first.  I made this soup for lunch and accompanied by a grilled cheese sandwich.

Quinoa Beef Salad

I have never cooked Quinoa before but we had a bag of it in our cupboard that a friend bought so I decided I would try to make some Quinoa Salad.  I made the salad with an assortment of food that we had in the fridge and the freezer...   It worked out wonderfully the lime and herbs give the salad a refreshing taste.

Fresh Rice Paper Beef Rolls



I love Vietnam, the food is awesome fresh healthy amazing, I have visited Vietnam 3 times and discover something new every time I visit. One the best Vietnamese dishes to make is fresh spring rolls you can make them with almost any fillings, whatever is fresh is great.  Today I used beef today, but I have made them with prawns, chicken, fish, pork or vegetarian.  In Vietnam I have had the rolls with Vietnamese Sausage and Soft shell crab.

Campfire Cooking

Resident beach-side ruminant - he looks hungry!  
What better way to escape the chaos of Hong Kong than to go camping. You only need to share the beach with a few other campers - and the occasional heard of cows! It's the perfect time of year for camping in Hong Kong as it's warm enough, but not so hot that you would get heat stroke in your tent.  It's also a great time for surfing; the waves are good and the water is still warm enough not to have to wear a wet suit. Each night we have a camp fire to cook our dinner, then we often wander along the beach and stop at other fires for a drink and a chat; you get to know the camping and surfing regulars on the beach! These are a few of the meals which I made last weekend...
