Outback Lamb san choy bau
A deliciously quick and fun meal for the whole family.
Getting the kids involved in making their own food is kind of fun. Probably fun in a similar vein to running a marathon - you spend 42km wondering exactly why it was you started this bizarre form of punishment and its not until its over that you realise its way more fun when its finished. Admittedly not so fantastically fun that I like to do it all the time, but it is a great holiday activity and a pretty cool way to trick them into an awareness of what might actually constitute healthy food. This recipe fall firmly in the category of "they love to make it" - we are working on the eating it bit, but hey, 2 out of 4 ain't bad right???
