Thai Red Curry Recipe and Birthday Boy Connor

Today is Recipe day. I thought I would share with you a family go to, and it's a popular with all, except our vegetarian. It is such a simple one to make, and it's one of the first things the twins learnt to cook for food technology.

Here is the beauty of this one.

You can interchange whatever vegies you have, so utilise what you have left in the fridge, and use the produce you are growing in your garden.

Thai Red Curry
Chicken breast chopped
Thai red curry paste
Tin can of coconut milk or cream
Book choy
Sweet potato

Fry the chicken breast in some oil, either coconut or olive oil. I add the curry paste now.
Add the onion and stir for a few minutes.
Add the rest of the vegies and stir for a little. Pop the lid on and steam the vegies for a few minutes.
Add the coconut milk, pop the lid on, turn down low and cook until the vegies are to your liking.

We either have this with rice, I sometimes spiralised zucchini and fry them up with it, or, in this case, I didn't put the sweet potato into the curry. I sliced it and popped it into the microwave for 5 minutes with a splash of olive oil, and salt and pepper.

You may notice I don't have amounts. The beauty of this one is that you add what you have. You know how much meat you will need. And just use the vegies you have. I usually bulk this up with vegies, and I usually pop two tins of coconut cream or milk into it. It goes kind f like a soup, and it's one of our family's favourite dinners, yet it's so simple.

On another note. Today this gorgeous boy turns 18. Where has the time gone?
I still have the gown I had to buy for hospital. You see, I went in early because I was having trouble with my liver levels and other vitals were not behaving. I was in hospital for a couple of weeks before I had Connor. I was a pin cushion, as the specialists even didn't know what was going on.
I found out after Connor was born early, that I had a very nasty toxaemia called HELLP Syndrome. It made me very sick and is no picnic for the baby either. Usual treatment is instant delivery of the baby, but they didn't know what it was. It's well known in the hospitals now. I even had all these specialists coming to smell my breath on a regular basis. They also were doing blood tests every half an hour. I still have scars from the needles.

I digress. I am blessed to have this gorgeous human in my life. Such a placid nature, a sweet soul, a friend, and inspiration.

Happy 18th birthday Connor.

I love you so much.
