Cookie Thai-m

On Friday Meg came down to Melbs for a visit! Drinking the above cocktails was just one of the many fun things we did together.  The boys in my house reckoned we are exactly alike.  Can't say I minded at all.

Thanks Meg for a super fun weekend!

After the Great Ocean Road we went to Ross's place (hello if you're reading, thanks for being a stellar host!) for a drink or thirty.

Never have I ever seen such a lovely house!

That tandoori pizza was awesome.

On Sunday afternoon after Meg and I parted ways I went to the city with my housemates to die of heatstroke and eat a v late lunch.

I ordered eight kilos of tapas.  I liked it all but I didn't quite love it.

On Monday night we went to dinner at a Thai restaurant that is inexplicably called Cookie.  It was hella indie but really nice.

Those thingies on the left were tapioca dumplins, oh em gee they were good.  Next to them is a load of prawns.  I ate nearly all of them myself (thanks everyone!).

Some kind of beef, pad thai with chicken and prawns, some super delicious sweet potato thing.

Eggnet! This was really incredible, like an explosion of corriander and mint in my mouth.
When I did cooking in high school the kitchens always smelled of corriander because we inexplicably used it in EVERY dish.  Naturally I grew to hate it, but now I love it again.  It's probably my second favourite herb, the first being basil.
Anyway check out how they presented the bills:

Charming! I love a vintage Little Golden Book.
Remember how last week I said I might bake?
Well I totes did:

I like to bake just about anything that doesn't have fruit in it, and I love to eat same, but there is really nothing like fresh baked cookies.  I think I almost prefer baking these to eating them, and that is really saying something.  I wanted to make a microwave chocolate pudding too but we didn't have all the ingredients.  Alas.


  1. I'm llooking forward to seeing you at home xxx. That food looks so goOd and how about that house? I want to live in it.

  2. Thank YOU for a super fun weekend darling! I had the best time! Those cookies were delicious, sorry I ate them all. I can't wait to see you this weekend! xxxx
