I've Gotten Curried Away

Before we moved to the DFW area, our, shall we say, variety of food choices were unlimited. We lived in a very central area with everything from Sushi and Greek to Indian and African food and it made is really fun going out with friends and family. Thai and Indian food, are by far one of my favorite foods. Some people are scared of it, but I really think that I could eat them (curry specifically) every day. Unfortunately for me, they're one of the scariest things to make and to be perfectly honest I've never tried. One of the reasons being is that my Indian and Pakistani friends say that it's just easier to buy that type of  food from a restaurant because it tastes better. If THEY can't make it right then how am I suppose to??? Secondly, I don't like to be a failure in the kitchen and failure just seems kinda likely to me when it comes to ingredients that I'm not use to using. Well, I'm trying something today. Just the regular ol' Thai Chicken Curry, which I actually never even get when I go out to eat Thai food, but it seemed like the easiest thing to make. Wish me luck...I'm gonna need it! Will post results *fingers crossed*!!

Here's the our menu for the week!

Monday ~ Thai Chicken Curry with Rice

Tuesday ~ Asian Pork Roast with Steamed Veggies

Hope it turned out good ... sounded yummy. Will have to send you my taco soup recipe. Kate loves it and I can make it spicer or milder depending the seasoning.
