Vietnamese Noodle Bowl with Grilled Lemon Grass Chicken


Finally, after three quarters of  ‘catering’ food for the girls, EK actually made a real contribution this week. He grilled the chicken! And he was very proud that the chicken was grilled to perfection. Seriously, I wouldn’t have survived three quarters of mass cooking every weekend without him manning the cleaning department.
