pomegranate hits the salad bowl

Malaysians are a darn lucky lot with the numerous holidays peppered all throughout the year. And the best thing about holidays is the parties! This Deepavali, we decided to get together to cook up a feast with all our Le Creuset tableware, all in different colours - orange, blue and even purple!

Like all get togethers, it is more fun when everyone works together. Take for instance, this glorious burst of colour in a salad. It's a simple one but darn tasty just tossed together - spinach leaves topped with freshly cut mangoes, avocados and the ruby red jewel-like pomegranates. The best way to extract those glistening red jewels is to cut them into half and whack the back hard with a wooden spoon. Expect a satisfying clunk, as each pomegranate hits the salad bowl.

As we all worked, we nibbled on smoked salmon on toast bread. There's all kind of dips - wasabi, chives and a capers and dill one that keeps our tummies happy as we work on lunch.

Soon lunch is ready to serve as delicious things pop out from the oven. First, there's roasted duck confit legs with mushrooms made by K, and a delicious roast thyme and garlic chicken from WP. Both in Le Creuset pots of course. I covet the light blue Le Creuset casserole!

As a former FOP (a.k.a. Fresh off the plane), I am always excited when a new & interesting word, THAT I CAN ACTUALLY USE, comes my way. Surely, I learn new words quite often, but they are not ones that I ought to use in a conversation.

The word I was excited about was pescetarian. I don’t know why I didn’t come across this word before, especially since I AM a food blogger. Anyway I heard about it for the first time, 2 weeks ago, from Alanna when she organised the potluck for all of us, Sarah, Ana, Erika, Lukas & me, to meet and mingle at her lovely place. She mentioned that word in her e-mail, and I was dumbfounded that I had not heard about it until then. How can that be?!?!  How hong thai travelcan that be?!?! By the way, you might want to check out their wonderful blogs if you have not already done so.
