Wednesday Special 06

It has been a terrific week with so many public holidays here in Bangkok. Despite the political turmoil, we still could find peace and happiness by getting away to the countryside. Managed to travel with T and his friends to the floating market and a beautiful clay workshop in Chachoengsao. Just in those moments, we forgot about all the chaos and enjoyed the trip to the fullest.

Meanwhile, the April's DMBLGIT host - the beautiful and talented Julia of Melanger Baking had sent me the award for winning the contest. So excited! Thanks to Julia, the judges Dominique of De vous à moi, El of Fresh, Giao of Kiss My Spatula and Mowie of Mowielicious. And Andrew of Spittoon!

It is another Wednesday Special. I would like to share a simple dish that mostly served on my dining table. T and I loved this easy-to-cook rice accompaniment and we hope you will too. And feel free to substitute any ingredient if you have your prefererred vegetable or meat in mind!

  1. Congratulations on your win and well, it's a fantastic photo so very deserved! I keep forgetting that you are in Bangkok but it must be hard there at times right now. Hope things get settled soon! In the meantime I love this dish

  2. Congratulations, your photo is really beautiful! It was a real pleasure (and a hard work too)to be one of the judges this year: we had a lot of good photos this month! I'm very happy for you...

  3. Kris, Congrats are in order!
    Such a feast for the eyes, and the palate!

  4. un très beau mélange de couleurs et de saveurs, j'aime beaucoup
    bonne journée

  5. Wow! this looks so good! Congratulations and little R&R does help=;) I noticed there was no liquid added to the dish, so this is sort of a stir fry?. I haven't tried gingko nuts, i think i must try them soon.

    BTW, i was wondering if you have a recipe for a Thai salad, it had green papaya, mango and i think apples? I actually had this salad during our visit to Bangkok years and years ago=;). It was served along a very crispy fish(that was delicious as well). I just thought about that salad now that the mangoes are in season..Asian mangoes that is!

  6. This is a good-looking blog indeed! And that dish is very good-looking to! I've never had gingko nuts.... but I'm going to Japan soon, so maybe I'll have a chance to taste some!
