I am still sampling the recipes from The Gourmet Cookbook, and today's random recipe turned out to be Thai-Style Tomato and Shrimp Salad. Salad always sounds more like a snack to me but I guess the addition of prawns, in this case, would qualify it as a light meal.
The prep work took me 45 mins but it salad components are chilling out in the fridge waiting to be tossed together. This is what I would call make-ahead!
I am still two minds about getting the cookbook. On one hand, I have bookmarked so many recipes that I would like to try, but on the other, my bookshelves are filling up fast. Yes, there is always the library, but I doubt that I would be able to get a copy of it again anytime soon since the library only has 3 copies in circulation.
Excuse me, while I go and agonise over this important matter.
