So on my daily trip to the mega mart to buy 240 rolls of toilet paper (just kidding) I found this great red pesto cheese. Originally I was just going to slice it up with some salami and make a bit of charcuterie. However I

Vermicelli Wrapped Prawns

Vermicelli Wrapped Prawns

Jump To Recipe One of my favorite things to get when travelling South East Asia are these vermicelli wrapped prawns. Probably because they are quite annoying to make, but they are still so delicious. They are a perfect party snack and go great with a
