Now that was an excellent FITH. Thanks to all who came to the party. I love waking up to find it going on, like Donkey Kong. I was transported to England and Massachusetts before I had my first sip of espresso.
And this morning I awoke to find the party had continued while I was sleeping. New York and New Mexico both represented. Maybe next time you guys can turn the music down a little bit?
Just in case you think we're only about flowers and kittens and Labs these days you would be so wrong.
We're still eating.
A bowlful of quickly pickled vegetables.
Some skinless, boneless chicken thighs quickly marinated in 6 cloves of mince garlic, 4 Tbsp. grated onion, 4 Tbsp. of fish sauce, 2 Tbsp. of sugar and S&P , left to rest for at least 30 minutes then grilled stovetop.
Wrapped up in lettuce leaves, strewn with garden herbs and dripping with a Vietnamese fish sauce.
I was inspired (as always) by the Goddess of field and stream ,Marie.
I read her post, and did what she did: used what I had in the house and fudged the rest.
I don't think you can go wrong with this meal.
Or with a gratuitous kitten picture.
Good God I am now officially a crazy cat woman.
