A few birthdays in the family and a sister and brother in law who have just returned from Vietnam called for a feast on Saturday night fit for (Vietnamese) royalty. My sister has always been a mighty fine cook/entertainer, but she certainly stepped it up a notch yesterday.
The rain miraculously disappeared and we were able to sit in the garden as dusk fell.
First course was rice paper rolls - seen here with napkins made by my Mum (using patchwork squares from Spotlight), and place names courtesy of my little niece.
I'm going to get this recipe from my sister to share with you - you all need these meat balls in your life at your next party.
The food kept on coming...and coming. I have to say, Vietnamese cuisine is up there with my favourite food - I love the fresh, light ingredients used. After seeing my sister's holiday snaps, it's definitely a country on the 'to visit' wish list. I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
