Apr 17, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Dinnertime

Ta Van, Vietnam, taken on December 30, 2015

Dinnertime is the perfect moment of sharing not only food, but conversations and happiness. One of the most memorable dinners I’ve had recently (sort of) was in Ta Van village, after a group of 10 trekkers arrived at our homestay for the night. Many of us were wet and muddy from the trek in the rain and definitely very tired and looking forward to some homemade Vietnamese food. Our host certainly prepared for us what seemed like a feast, and it was almost paradise on a table! Let’s dig in!

December 04, 2014 – Turkey

Tonight was the MiMe lab Christmas dinner with the labmates 🙂 Although I rarely, if ever, order turkey, I figured I’d give it a try for the sake of Christmas spirit. My favourite part of the dish is actually the variety of sides accompanying the turkey – broccoli, Brussels sprouts, bacon-wrapped sausages, asparagus, roasted potatoes, and a strange red sauce of some sort. Very early happy holidays to everyone 😛

November 11, 2014 – Meal with rice

First self-cooked meal in Glasgow WITH RICE. Had enough of pasta and bread for now, so I decided to experiment with rice using a pot, once again. It worked out for the most part – optimization required, but that happens with every new kitchen when you’re not used to the stove settings and the utensils. Accompanying the rice, we have green beans, mushrooms, and LAMB! Pas mal, I think!
