Sunday Evening Fun

Now that Spring is here to stay (we hope!), it was time to have dinner with some friends.  Everything was made from scratch. 

Our friend Sarah made the margaritas and the photos!
Margarita (per drink)
2 ounces Tequila
1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice
1 ounce Cointreau
a splash of Grand Marnier
Put these ingredients and ice into a cocktail shaker, and shake away.
Then pour and enjoy.
Put salt around glass rim, if that's what you like.
Oh, and she also made the delicious kimchi on the left.  I made a spicier version.
K-Pop stars show how to make kimchi, here.

A chicken stir fry, served over rice with a fried egg placed on top.  Chicken stir fry ingredients:  chicken breasts, bamboo shoots, carrots, bell pepper, mushrooms, Thai basil, fresh garlic, red curry paste, fish sauce, seasoning sauce and oyster sauce. 
My husband always seems intrigued by the way I fry eggs.   But it's just the way everyone does it in Thailand.  Here's a video example.

Raw Food Salad.  Ingredients:  zucchini, cucumber, bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, carrots, dill, parsley, fresh lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Something very close to what I do at Greenlife.

Dark Chocolate Strawberries.
