get ready for a marathon post … here’s the precursor:
first off, saw that burrito max closed! is this a product of the kenmore square gentrification? RIP, burrito max. your tofu bbq burrito will be missed!
and despite the fancy-shmancy dinner at radius where each dish was labored over by top professionals, i have to say i’m proud of the thai red curry i whipped up just now (now that i have my life back i actually have time to cook — and do laundry haha). since i was dumping pictures i thought i’d take a rare pic of my own cooking. this curry was amazingly simple. you pretty much just put 1 cup of coconut milk in, some red curry paste and maybe a bit of sugar (and fish paste if you’re of the omnivorous ilk), and some veggies, and then some more coconut milk, and that’s it. my respect for thai curry makers has severely diminished. actually i shouldn’t be too cocky, b/c the other curries in this book were much more elaborate. but this is def. going into my limited arsenal of guy-who-doesn’t-really-cook-but-can-if-it-takes-less-than-10-minutes-and-there-are-less-than-five-ingredients dishes. here’s the cookbook it came from. andy and i picked it up b/c it has lots of nice pics.
