Got up for work this morning, dazed, in bathroom I notice it is still dark. Stagger back to bedroom, examine clock again. 3AM. *sigh deeply*

Wondering how I can get a job proofing scam emails. 'I hereby wish to crave your indulgence'. Now, personally, I'd phrase that differently.

Kaeng kua bamboo shoot curry

Thursday, March 18, 2010

Kaeng kua bamboo shoot curry. Very hot!

Very hot! Bit heavy on the bamboo. The recipe calls for a lot of chicken, I used mushroom instead, but perhaps need more or something different next time - tofu or mock meat perhaps?

Sauce is coconut based.
