Thai Red Curry

1 can coconut milk
1/2 tbsp red curry paste
1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp lime juice
1/3 cup thai basil
1 tbsp fish sauce
some ginger and garlic
chicken, cut into cubes

frozen veggies

1. Cook rice in rice cooker
2. Cut chicken and brown in large pan with olive oil, ginger and garlic.
3. Once chicken is cooked through, add curry paste
4. Add coconut milk, basil, fish sauce, sugar, and lime juice. Stir and let simmer for 20 min
5. Add veggies and simmer for another 10 min.

This ended up tasting pretty good! Fresh veggies usually taste better, but I needed to use some of the frozen veggies we have laying around!

The beginning of something!

I needed a place to keep track of the yummy food that I have been cooking and since I really enjoy using food blogs as a resource for gathering ideas I thought I would use this as a pseudo-recipe box.
I tend to cook things that sound good to me at the moment, and therefore I am sure the randomness will come across in my food choices!
We'll see how this goes!
