Just prepared Thai style Pineapple Fried Rice for dinner using a recipe from "Thai Home Cooking", a cookbook I've borrowed from NLB. Had wanted to cook Tom Yam soup but the recipe was missing from the book. Someone had apparently torn out the page with the recipe. Some people are just being so inconsiderate. Actually, I would consider a theft- taking something that does not belong to u.
Anyway, back to the pinapple fried rice, Jerome was totally impressed with it. Maybe it was because I served the fried rice in the pineapple itself. It definitely looks very appetisiing & impressive :P Tastewise, I'm glad that it taste as good as it looks. Jerome said that it was better than the last pineapple fried rice that we've had from a Thai restuarant... Yummy! I couldn't agree more. I should have cooked more rice.
To complete the Thai meal, I served Thai Green Curry & made Mango Ice-Blend. Now, it's a perfect meal!
