Honeycomb and Calamansi Drink

Shrimp and Cashew Nut Salad, Thai Style

We had just returned from a family holiday in Bangkok about a fortnight ago.  Ever since then, I've been on a Thai food cooking frenzy :P  The smell of fish sauce, lime, lemon grass and other related aromatics have been wafting from the kitchen for the past many days.  The neighbours must be wondering if a Thai family has moved in!

Because she also worked full time, time was not a luxury she had in the kitchen. So mum became an expert on wokking up dishes that require minimal ingredients.   One of our all-time favourite dishes is this Pan Fried Prawns.
