I made Thai food last night- and it turned out DAMN good!
This isn’t an actual picture of mine… although I should have snapped one. I learned last night that Thai Red Curry Chicken is much like ‘chili’– it has infinite variations on a theme. Its sort of a melange that you just concoct– you don’t use a recipe much, other than for the basic foundation. Its fun and creative, and that’s why Thai food is like the new Black (for me).
I have a few set dishes that I can whip up from memory at a moment’s notice (chili being one of them). This will now be added to the arsenal. I started with a recipe search on google for Thai red curry dishes, and then I picked and chose features from different ones that I liked.
For instance, I added onion and bamboo shoots to mine- in addition to a red bell pepper. I also added ginger (which only some recipes called for). The whole thing was like a chemistry experiment, and it turned out well. Ask Jim, he ate two bowls of it!
(and there were NO leftovers)
I served up my Thai food in my new “Buddha Bowls”:
Evidently these fucking things were featured on Oprah or something. I don’t know. But my father discovered them in a little artistic store in the East Village of Des Moines, and thought I would like them.
And I do.
Mine are a dark greenish-grey color, so much better than that bright green. They could be a tad bigger, but they worked very well for the jasmine rice and Thai curry last night.
Check one thing off my new year’s resolution list, betches.
