Lunch Party Menu with Girls

Posted November 18th, 2008 in Food 4 Comments »

Last weekend I gathered up my friends to my house for lunch.  It’s just because I wanted to cook what I wanted to eat :p

People in this house (my partner’s family) does NOT eat any veges, they don’t even eat chopped spring onions in a soup noodle.  (not good for their health!)  On the other hand, I LOVE veges and I prefer it to meat.  Well, I eat meat and seafood and everything but I can’t eat just meat, have to be with some veges: otherwise I don’t feel good:p

I made 2 kinds of salad, one is Asian Salad and another is Cajun Chicken Citrus Salad.  I mixed grilled beef in the Asian Salad for my friend’s husband.  (Guys always love meat)

Also some canapes and meatballs.

<Meat Balls with Tomato Dip>



Saute chopped onion, garlic and carrots on a low heat.  Add tined chopped tomato and simmer until it becomes dip-like consistency.  Season.  Mix through chopped herbs.

<Cajun Chicken Citrus Salad>

Mix green leaves with sliced red onion, cucumber etc…  Add orange segments and sliced avocado.  Grill chicken breast with cajun spice, and mix through to the salad.  Season with orange juice, olive oil and salt & pepper.

    Yeah I hope so:)

    >How do they live(survive) without veges?!
    I know!!(>0<) Very unhealthy, aren’t they?
    Besides, they love deep-fried food and meat… Oh my gosh.

    Actually I’ve been training my partner to eat vege, and thankfully he can eat some veges now. But his sisters and father think that veges are gross :p
    They always look at me with weird eyes when I’m eating salad. Ummm..

    My partner’s body will be cleaned once he comes to Japan :eating only Japanese food hehe 🙂
