I’ve missed you all! These past two weeks have been hectic, but I’m happy to say we’re finally settled down into our new place. Our last major piece of furniture is being delivered tomorrow morning (new couch!), and then it’s just a matter of going through our remaining boxes. It’s weird having more space than you know what to do with, but I am lov-ing it.
We’ve gone from one small bedroom to three, from one bathroom to two, we’ve added a driveway, garage, and basement, and we’ve got windows galore! I never realized how much I missed natural light until it dawned on me that we’d been living in a cave for the last few years.
I haven’t spoken to John about this yet, but… come visit! I can’t wait to host our friends and family now that we actually have space.
Oh, I almost forgot! We acquired a second refrigerator that lives in the basement. I’m sure this is one of those situations where we’ll never be able to live without a second fridge again. Right now, the freezer is stockpiled with our leftover wedding cake (of which there is still a lot). I plan on making a bunch of freezer-friendly meals before the baby comes to help us transition during those first few weeks, and I’m sure the additional space in the basement will be highly welcomed.
But I know why you’re all here. You don’t actually care about our new house (though you should – it’s pretty awesome). You want food. Ask and ye shall receive.
A winner. That’s how I would describe this curry.
Not only does it taste like the real deal, it’s effortless. Well, as effortless as making curry can be. I won’t pretend to know whether this is authentic or not (I’m guessing “not” given that the ingredient list is relatively short…), but I will say that John and I just moved from a very heavily influenced Thai neighborhood, and after all the delicious foods we’ve tried, I would still label this “Thai” and happily eat it daily.
…unless I have another pregnancy and experience a similar aversion to Asian foods. In which case, get this the heck away from me.
But seriously, this is fantastic. And? It’s the first meal I cooked in our new kitchen. Our kitchen that is easily 3x the size of our old kitchen. That means 3x the storage space, 3x the counter space, and 3x the amount of windows and natural light. I am one happy little cook!
The only thing making me sad right now? I finished the remaining leftovers for dinner this evening. Continue reading Thai Coconut Curry Shrimp
