Naturally... when we are awake at that godly hour, our tummy too will demand some attention.
Due to time zone, we get to watch the matches either at midnight, 3am or 6am, and soon it'll be at 4am...  when everyone else (not a footbal fan of course ;p) is in bed dreaming away...

...and these Thai Lemongrass little bites are excellent for wee hours football matches!
Prepare them ahead of time...
you will definitely get a good bite for a good fight (on the football field.. I mean :)

  1. I'm not a football fan... Lot better for sleeping.. Lol. Although it's here at normal hours so that helps... But these bites will go well at any party!

  2. Delicious! I am a big fan of lemongrass.



  3. The wings must be flavourful and full of aroma of the easy to prepare and hassle free too. Im not much into the world cup but do catch up on their scores.

  4. Yeah, we are World Cup fans. And these chicken bites are perfect to go with it!
