Chat and Eat and Watch

Posted December 20th, 2009 in Perth WA No Comments »

On Saturday my friends came over to my house for a small gathering. (bounen-kai ?)  We brought up some foods and drinks to share.  I knew we weren’t gonna eat much, we’d rather talk what we are up to, so I just made a platter of sandwiches and baked tomato pasta.

Friends brought some drinks, cajun crusted prawn salad, and salmon carpaccio.  The dressing for the salmon carpaccio was Japanese style.  Here is the recipe 🙂

  • Slice white onion very thin, and place in a bowl of cold water.  Drain.
  • On a serving plate, arrange thin slices of salmon on a bed of onion.  Drizzle virgin olive oil and fresh lemon juice.  Drop capers, and season with salt and black pepper.
  • For a dressing (dipping sauce), mix 2 tbs of mayonnaise, 1/4 tsp wasabi paste and few drops of soy sauce.

You can adjust the amount of wasabi and soy sauce for your taste!

I prepared some desserts as well because I knew girls need something sweet after a meal. 🙂

As I thought, we were so busy talking… We talked about jobs, boyfriends, traveling, etc…   It’s so nice to have this type of gathering to catch up with friends.

After awhile we started to watch a film, “The Mist” by Stephen King.  I don’t know why, but every time we have a gathering at my house we watch some movies.  Last time we watched “Blindness“, and the time before we watched “When A Stranger Calls“.

Oh yes, on the same day my new fridge came to the house!  I really needed a fridge for myself…  I have lots of stuff for Bagelier.

I’m buying some household stuff little by little so that I don’t need to spend a lot at once when I move into a new house in the future.  I hope it’s gonna happen soon 🙂
