Storm Cells and food

Some storm cells are moving through our district at the moment and we are getting some glorious rain.  Hope it rains all night!
Thank you all for doing the rain dance, it seems to have worked.

I am loving these at the moment.  I made the chinese cabbage salad recipe on the back of the packet and it is yum.  
It is made with chinese wom bok cabbage shredded, flaked almonds and shallots.  You pour over your dressing which is 1/4 cup caster sugar, 1/4 cup white vinegar, 2 teasp sesame oil and 1/4 cup olive oil.  They say 1/2 cup olive oil, but that is too greasy for us.  You stir this over low heat just until the sugar dissolves and let it cool before using over your salad.  Just before eating sprinkle over your fried noodles and you're good to go!

You can also do some little chocolate delights with these too.  
They are also just lovely in your stir fries for a bit of crunch, and you know what? I could just eat them as they are straight out of the packet.  (A little bit naughty...)
