Katie, Des and I get together every few months. We make dinner, drink wine, catch up, and usually post a few funny only to us statuses. They’re some of my favorite nights. This month was my night to host. Hosting means you put together a menu including an appetizer, entrée, sides and dessert. You get the entrée ready before anyone arrives (in theory), then you drink wine and cook, and finally drink more wine. Good times are had by all. I’d been wanting The Land of Plenty cookbook for a while, so this was my excuse to buy it. I immediately felt in over my head.

After my dinner at To Chau, I thought I’d like to try to make spring rolls and drunken noodles (in an attempt to use up some of the red Thai dragon peppers I’m growing). I wandered into Lucky Market and hit the jackpot. Who knew such places exist in Wichita? Well, I knew there were Asian markets, I just had no idea they were so big! (That’s what she said.) Fair disclaimer: Most packages are prominently in languages I don’t speak/read, but if you take time to look there’s also English.
