Mother shared the secret to extremely tasty pie: Oyster sauce.
And we had two packets of tofu that had been sitting in the fridge doing nothing, so Brother took it, dumped soy sauce (both light and dark) and fried shallots on it, and we ate it cold. It was missing spring onions, but there weren't any in the house. But it was really lovely anyway. Cold tofu... one of our childhood faves. MMMmmmmm. Kinda like custard. But salty. Like eating cold Camembert. Sorta.
So we had two childhood favorites for dinner today... cottage pie, piping hot from the oven (beef + buttery mashed potatoes = YUM) and sparkly cold tofu on the side. Yay fusion food!
Oh oh, and the chilli plant that we bought yesterday had a few ripe ones, so we harvested them! They're tiny birds-eye chillies that pack a HUGE punch and burn your tongue out of your mouth. Yowza!
