Let’s be real.
We don’t wake up feeling great every single day.
Today I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Well, actually that’s not true, I woke up on my side of the bed — just way too late.
I won’t bore you with the stress I felt for the following twenty-five minutes trying to make lunches, get my boys to school, etc. However, somewhere between dropping my kids off and forcing myself to go on a quick trail run, I felt slightly better.
I began to cheer up partly because I’m so very excited to share this recipe with you. Yes, you! It makes me so happy to share my culinary adventures in the kitchen — I love that you’re reading, cooking (I hope), and ideally eating my food! It truly brings me great joy.
This recipe creates an absolutely glorious ingredient: curry paste. Curry powders and pastes are a blend of several, sometimes dozens, of ingredients. This particular curry paste recipe contains many of the ingredients in a typical Thai curry paste, and I love it. It develops dishes with deep, rich, incredibly delicious flavor.
I suggest making this over the weekend . . . or today! You’ll need it on hand because soon . . . we’re going to embark on a journey into curry! Oh, I like how that sounds! Get excited because there will be French fries, minty rice dishes, and perhaps even something sweet.
And now my friends, I really feel better. Thank you!
I love, love how beautiful and aromatic these ingredients are!
