Job Corps. Wife learned to cook from me. This leads many people to think that, should they need advice in the kitchen, I am the one to call. I am not.
Perhaps it's a poor idea, when trying to establish a cooking blog, to talk about one's inadequacies in the kitchen. However, it's the truth; I am very bad at the technical aspects of cooking. I double check "The Joy of Cooking" to get the proper cooking time for baked potatoes. I prefer it when Wife makes the rice. Her skills lie in, well, skill. When she found a roasted chicken recipe she liked she memorized it, and apart from minute changes in seasoning, she makes the same bird each time. Mashed potatoes, gravy, and a small rotating selection of veg follow as if created on an assembly line. This analogy may make the food sound uninteresting, but it's not. Everything is tender, flavorful, and perfect.
Long story short, Boy loved it. I loved it. It's probably not for everyone, but here is what I did in case it sounds good to you:
|What you do with the other packet is up to you.|
3 tsp. fish sauce
1 tsp. soy sauce
|The proper amount of char.|
|With the chilli paste.|
