4 Thai Recipes
Welcome to a real kickass week, friends! After a big old headache, trying to arrange different "guy with a van" types, I finally made it work: I'm now the proud owner of two, huge leather recliners and I never want to leave them. One lives in the living room and the other in the bedroom. I rearranged everything like a grandpa with "his chair" so that I can see the TV and yell at everyone from my corner in the room. Peak Hill.
Also, I want to give a little shoutout to a podcast I love, Another Round. They hosts and guests are always fun and insightful, but this week I was in stitches during the white people history segment with Matt Bellassai. Listen to the first 15 minutes:
AND my shower got fixed! It had been dripping scalding hot water (when turned off) from all of the knobs and faucets for months, and it got so loud that the dripping noises would actually wake me up at night even when the door is closed. Now my shower is better than my gym shower so I really have no reason to go to the gym.
In cooking news, all month long, my friends at Try The World have been featuring these four Thai recipes I put together for their Thailand box! I actually resolved this year to cook more Thai food. I'm not the biggest fan, so I never made it at home. It was a great experience. A few pointers after the links to the recipes...!
Pointers: you may have to go to many grocery stores for all of your ingredients. The Associated in Woodside might have green papaya, but no Thai basil. Start at the tiny Thai market and the woman there will direct you through the three other grocery stores you need to visit in order to get everything on your list. (Try The World definitely makes this easier too!) You will have to politely ask for/sneakily take a couple extra bubble tea straws from the bubble tea place; I could only find straws for purchase online. Also, no matter what you do, if you leave a half-used container of green curry in your fridge for a day, everything in your fridge will taste like green curry for a month. BE WARNED.
