Coin and Currency Club – Pakistan

The month’s selection for the Coin and Currency Club is the country of Pakistan. Pakistan is the 33rd-largest country by area, being the second largest in South Asia. Bounded by the Arabian Sea on the south, the Gulf of Oman on the southwest, and the Sir Creek on the southeast, it shares land borders with India to the east; Afghanistan to the west; Iran to the southwest; and China to the northeast. Its capital is Islamabad and largest city Karachi.

Alex was able to identify Central Asia and one of the “Stans” as the country of the month

Taste Test – Thai Kitchen Fried Rice

We gave this fried rice instant dish from Thai Kitchen a try during a quick hurried dinner one night. The instant rice is ready after a short microwaving and can be used as a ready made side dish. The shelf stable product although fully hydrated would be useful on a short canoe trip if the added weight is not an issue. It could be heated by immersing in a pot of boiling water.

An OK side dish if you are in a hurry but any homemade fried rice you would make would be much better. 5 out of 10.
