I have gotten into the habit of stopping here on my way to work after they open to buy my favourite Chicken sandwiches where I ask them to put on extra cilantro.
I used to work around the corner and I used to come here a couple of times a week. She still remembers me as I am the only one who discards all the pickled vegetables and instead gets a big dose of cilantro
Sorry, no photos of the sandwiches (I ate them too fast) but I have to let you know that they were very tasty, and here she is toasting the buns . . .
We were in the middle of a heat wave and this shop does not have air conditioning
When Ed was here I found out that he really likes cashews but my supply was getting low. Since it was hot I told him that I didn't really want to turn on our oven, but I WOULD if he wanted some .
Now that it is much cooler, today I made another batch
I set our oven to 350°F and put them in for about 15 minutes. Then I took the tray out to check their progress. Nope, not ready yet. I set the timer for another 14 minutes and put them back into the 350°F heat. I like the cashews roasted a bit darker, they have more crunch this way
I removed them and put then into a metal wok, sprinkled a bit of vegetable oil so that the salt could adhere. Not too much salt but I have tried them "plain" and found that I prefer salted cashews
I waited a while to let them cool, then I put them into a large jar
I've got no will-power. I have to take a sample everytime I walk by . . .
