we made something that I’ve been meaning to try for a very long time.
Our own chocolate bowls! For a more elaborate tutorial and where I got the idea from in the first place head over to the very clever Bakerella.
These were made by children, so were not the neatest of bowls, but it did not affect the taste! One of the children, who will remain nameless, thought they would like to create a bowl larger than anyone elses and tried to cover a majority of the balloon in chocolate only to discover when it was time to pop the balloons that it all cracked into tiny pieces. The rest of us, with a bowl shape (and not greed) in mind, simply dipped the base of our balloons* in the melted chocolate as thickly as possible and placed it on some baking paper to set. We put them in the fridge, as we wanted them to set quickly, but you probably wouldn’t need to.
* We used normal balloons blown up very small, but water balloons would be best.
**instant pudding - another food from my childhood that I happened to see on the supermarket shelf and had to give it a try!
¼ cup White Vinegar
1/4 cup Castor Sugar
1 tblsp Soy Sauce
2 tsp sesame oil (Optional)
½ cup Olive Oil
Mix all the ingredients of the Dressing in a saucepan. Stir well over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Cool. Combine the Cabbage, chopped spring onions and almonds in a salad bowl. Add dressing and mix well. Just before serving add the noodles and toss thoroughly.
Addition 02/11: This recipe just got even easier! Chang’s have now put out a bottle of the dressing that goes on this salad! That just cut down the prep time by half!
This delicious recipe, from the back of the packet of Chang’s Oriental Fried Noodles, is a very well known salad recipe and can be found at many a group BBQ when one is required to bring a salad. It is so easy to make and tastes amazing. Add about 300g of shredded BBQ chicken or BBQ pork and you have a meal on it’s own.
You may have noticed that today is Wednesday and not Tuesday, the regular day for easy peasy dinner winners. It’s just getting too hard for me to do a regular post every week. So this will be the last regular easy peasy dinner winner post with linky. I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you for the fantastically easy recipes that you have passed this way over the last 6 months.
Addition – as the linky tools are no longer free all of the links are no longer accessible
