Happy birthday Nan!

It's my Nanny's 77th birthday as of a few minutes ago - I don't know why but I'm having a little bit of a worry about this, suddenly 77 sounds elderly, 76 doesn't. Odd. She's finally going to retire in the next 3 months of so I guess that might be contributing to it too...? She's amazing, I love her dearly.
Anyhoo looking forward to seeing her of course, and my sister and her family who are coming for lunch tomorrow.

Going to give a new salad recipe a bash:

Vermicelli Noodle Salad

100 gm (1 bundle) rice vermicelli noodles
50 gm fresh bean sprouts
¼ cucumber, diced
5-6 cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons unsalted roasted peanuts
2 tablespoons coriander leaves, diced

1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
4 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 inch ginger, grated
Juice of ¼ lemon
Optional: ½ green chilli, diced

1. Soak vermicelli rice noodles in boiling water for 1 hour.
2. Drain vermicelli noodles and place in large bowl.
3. Add cucumber, tomatoes, peanuts and coriander leaves.
4. In another bowl, mix sweet chilli sauce, sugar, salt, ginger, lemon juice and chilli. Add some boiling water to create a runny sauce.
5. Pour sauce over the vermicelli noodles and mix well.
6. Add sesame seed oil, mix well and top with some coriander leaves before serving.
