We’ve had a stressful few weeks around here. And in times of stress, we tend to order in Thai food. But all that ordering started to look a bit silly when I had a jar of red curry paste in my fridge. So off to create my own curry I went! I have to say […]
So we all have colds in Casa del Kitchen Operas right now… so it was time for spicy soup. Our usual cold remedy of choice is either a big bowl of Tom Yum with Brown Rice Vermicelli or Miso & Coconut Soup with Soba Noodles. However, we had a craving around these parts for Thai […]
