This is another one of those “how could I not have blogged about this before” type recipes. I’ve been making it for years, and if you’re a fan of southeast Asian flavors, you’re going to love it, too.
I almost feel guilty that I’ve never shared this recipe here before. Like I’ve been holding out on you or something, and it’s been giving me a bad case of food blogger guilt for the past two days. This is one of the best appetizer recipes in my entertaining arsenal (that sounds weird, like my arsenal is entertaining) — I meant to say, it’s one of the best recipes in my arsenal of entertaining favorites.
Gosh, I hate being sidelined. This morning, after I got the kiddos off to school, fired 50 tennis balls to the DamDog, and cleaned up the breakfast aftermath, I grabbed a cup of coffee, fired up the laptop, and as usual, cruised the current sale ad for dinner inspiration. I do so wish I had it in me to hobble to the store then play in the kitchen all day, but alas, it’s not to be. Gotta chill. Literally. The foot is elevated and resting comfortably on a ziplock bag full o’ ice.
