Re: Tried these:
Ahhh the christmas-cookies.com one sounds like it’d be awesome, but it won’t load up for me??
How about 2 min noodles with bak choy/choy sum/lettuce and char siu! heehee….it’s one of the few things i can do!
oh…and it should be no trouble at all to get guys to help you with work…in general, older men LOVE chirpy pretty young things….and people always like it if they are being asked to do YOU a favour!!!!! …
…maybe the women are jealous!!!
try some bribes..like chocolate!!!
You put lettuce in cooked noodles??? Sounds bizzare 😛 The char siu does sound good though, but I don’t think they sell it at Woolworths, do they? I just went grocery shopping and bought a big bag of Maggi, hehe. I love cracking an egg in there so you get really eggy noodles.. mmm.
*lol* on the women being jealous! Doubt it, ‘cos they earn about 34284x more than I do 😛 I managed to convince 3 to do it today, it took so much butt-kissing and grovelling. I like the bribery idea.. for my real experiment, i’m definitely going to offer chocs and stuff during the break, what a cool idea, hehe.
For your reference, a lot of Chinese / Hongkongers DO put lettuce in cooked noodles. Many people like that, indeed. To us, whether u put choi sum or lettuce doesn’t really make too big a difference, for they are all considered vegetables to us.
But then, I do know that ‘westerners’ prefer to eat fresh lettuce instead of heated or cooked ones..so I don’t know!
Actually.. now that I think about it, when I go out and get noodles, they *do* have lettuce, but it’s usually shredded up right? I was picturing those large lettuce leaves (a la salad style) in noodles and going “whaaaat?”
Hrm.. now I want to try cooked lettuce and char sui maggi noodles! How do I make it though? How do I cook the lettuce before putting it with the noodles, and where would I buy & cook char sui? It sounds really yummy..
Since I have never been to Australia, I can’t really tell you where you can get char sui.
But when I was still in Manchester, I used to get char sui from Chinatown. Or, if you go to Chinatown by any chance, why not get a bottle of ‘Char Sui Souce’, ‘X.O. Souce’ or ‘Lobster Souce’.
Ever heard of those ‘Lee Kum Kee’ souces before? Perhaps this site can help you a bit…
I’m a bit far from Chinatown.. doh 🙁 But I’ll try and find some other substitute.. As for asian sauces, hopefully there’s a chinese supermarket near me! They do sell some asian sauces at the supermarkets but not sure if they’re authentic 😛
I made this pie last week…Chocolate Banana Cream Pie. It turned out fabulous! It’s no bake either, just mix everything together and let it chill in the fridge. Makes for a refreshing dessert! 🙂
OMG!! that looks fantastic.. I gotta make it this weekend :)~
