Rice is king

There has been a swing in the Jackson’s eating pattern.  We have not had a single potato (at home) since arriving in Laos about 10 days ago.  We have had a couple of western meals in restaurants and have had potato there though.

Instead rice has finally come to the fore. 

This is the most used addition to our apartment – we purchased our own rice cooker.

And to prove a conversion has happened Andrew cooked fried rice for dinner – a meatless meal!  It was delicious.

And thinking this would be up his alley this little taste treat was purchases – salted broad beans.  They are quite common here and seen in all the snack racks. They were not that exciting however. They don’t taste like broad beans at all, more like palatable salted wood-chip.
