Grand Final day. Take 2. Our graciously hospitable friends were hosting us yet again, and I thought I should bring some salads so it doesn’t fall upon our hosts to provide all the food. I wanted at least one that had a fresh taste and would stand up well to the heaviness of the meats; I decided on the mint and cabbage salad that was in the Red Spice Road cookbook (they recommended it as an accompaniment to this lovely lamb dish. For the second salad I chose to go with something that’s a regular standby, something that everyone would be comfortable with; good ol’ potato salad.
From Tim Ferriss, author of the 4 Hour Workweek. I should note here that I have yet to get the blowing thing to work, but the addition of baking soda does help.
If anyone does get the blowing thing working, please comment and let me know!

I know this is a big call to make, but this was seriously the best roast lamb I have ever tasted... And I know that Mr. Z and Miss A agrees too :)
This is a Japanese dish that works really well as a quick meal or for a packed lunch. Essentially you’ve got a thin, sort of crêpe like egg cover over the ketchup flavoured fried rice. Because of the ketchup factor, I think kids would enjoy it too, despite the veggies you might want to sneak in there (I certainly love this when I was a kid!)
