Thai Yellow Curry & Friday Potluck

Happy Friday!

I was so relaxed that I forgot it was Thursday! How does that even happen?? I had every intent of posting last night after I made this delicious yellow curry. Guess I was too relaxed from my fabulous massage yesterday. These things happen.

Guess what! I didn't post until This Very Minute.

So today, a little late, I bring you Thai Yellow Curry & Friday Potluck.

Friday Potluck Jan 20

Happy Friday Potlucking to you!

I write you from the frigid north. You know you live in a cold place, when...

...15 degrees sounds like a great dream hope it warms up enough to snow wouldn't even mind another foot or so of snow because it's at least warm enough to go do stuff.

Crab Apple Liqueur

Several years ago, a good friend gave me a bottle of her father's crab apple liqueur for Christmas. I loved it!

When we moved into the new house, there were two trees that, in the spring flowered and smelled amazing... one was a May Day tree and the other, you guessed -- a crab apple tree. I spent all fall researching exactly what to do with the little crab apples. I had to do something! They were so beautiful!

Thai Lemongrass Chicken Curry & Friday Potluck

What a wild ride it's been!

There has been so much going on in my life the last few weeks, months, you name it! I'm not sure where the time has gone. Suddenly, it's 2012!
2012?!?!?! How did this happen?

Actually, I've got a pretty good idea where the time has gone.

my back deck

This is a year of near record snowfall in Anchorage. Before the latest round of storms, I think we stood at almost 82" of snow. Today, we got at least another 8, and it's still falling.

I'm getting really good at shoveling. I'm blessed with neighbors that help shovel the driveway, and I have been keeping up with the back deck... It's getting hard to shovel UP though!!!
Nothing like a snowy day to make you appreciate a lovely soup.

1 lb chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1-2 tbsp Thai green curry powder
2 cups chicken broth
1 can light coconut milk
4 green onions, diced
3 stalks lemongrass, tough outer leaves removed and pale stalk diced

Heat empty pan on medium heat until hot to touch. Toss chicken into the pan, and cover with curry powder. Saute until cooked all the way through. Toss in some chicken broth (I make mine using water and Better than Bouillon) to deglaze the pan. Allow to simmer for a few minutes and then add in the coconut milk, green onions and lemongrass. Cover and simmer for another 20 minutes to allow the flavors to marry.

Serve over brown rice and enjoy the yummy-ness.

And now onto the first Friday Potluck of 2012! Enjoy!

Happy New Year

The last several weeks have been so incredibly busy that I actually forgot about Friday Potluck! How is this possible!!! I finally cooked an actual meal for the first time in what seems like ages last night - Smoky Roasted Ratatouille with a side of salmon and brown rice. Delicious! EKat's Kitchen will be back with lots of new recipes and foods in 2012 - hard to believe that yes, it is 2012 already. Where does time go? And Friday Potluck will be back next week! Hope you all had an incredible holiday and are off to the start of a very Happy New Year! xoxo Erin
