very very late comment here but.... emilies; my favourite thing to do with vegemite (besides spreading on toast) is as an ingredient. You won't believe the difference it makes to the depth of flavour to add a tablespoon to a beef stew or veggie soup etc...try it!
you guys rock! I knew I could count on you all!
I ended up doing the cheat frozen thing and found some dumplings, also did cold soba noodles (yeah yeah, japanese, told my kid it was cold CHINESE noodles) with a kinda soy/ginger/sesame dressing, and threw in a pack of prawn crackers for good measure
next year she's going to be Australia! (where we live btw) and dress in normal clothes and take meat pies and vegemite sandwiches! haha
I'm new to posting but have been lurking here for ages!
hoping for some help if anyone can...
my daughter just told me that it's 'multicultural day' at her school tomorrow! (thanks for the advance notice darling!)
she has to dress in a costume of another country and bring a dish of food to share - well, the costume's easy, we have a lovely cheong san (Chinese dress) that was just bought for her, but any ideas on something I can run to the shops for ingredients and easily whip up before tomorrow?
looking for - Chinese food, cold/room temp (can't heat anything at school) and might appeal to 9-10 yr olds? oh and easy.. I don't really fancy staying up all night! :)
thanks in advance!
