Thai week - Spring rolls, chocolate lava cakes, Thai Curry and lemon poppy cakes
On Monday we made Thai spring rolls with a Peanut dipping sauce
As a dessert we made little chocolate lava cakes in a coffee cup. It was so good that on Monday I made them again when we had friends in the garden. After so much chocolates I thought we'd try to change the recipe a bit and make lemon poppy steam cakes. We used home made lemon essence we made it last year and tasted beautifully lemony.
The Thai Curry we had with rice was quick and easy. Rather than using chicken breasts I used mushrooms which worked out very well.

making some sauces for the week's zoom sessions
As this week I will be attempting some Thai food, I had to make some sauces (as I don't want to buy them specially for one recipe)
Fist I made peanut butter, using one cup of salted roasted peanuts, 1 tbsp of maple syrup and some oil.
Then this sriracha sauce
As we had some sriacha sauce left over, I decided to make a tomato soup and added the left over of the sauce into the soup.
