Thai me to the moon
Let me cook among the stars
Let me see what spring onions are like
On jupiter and mars
(With apologies to Mister Sinatra)
Food bloggers are all over the place these days and I would hazard a guess that food is the most highly populated area of all blogging genres. Few make enough of an impact on me to keep me going back to their blog. One of the foodies I am in awe of is Nina Timm, whose photographs alone are enough to make me a lifetime fan.
Nina is hosting a ‘blog event’; a competition for the best Thai inspired food post.
Despite the stiff competition, I decided to enter; I adore Thai food and cook it frequently. As I so often blog prawn dishes I’ve cooked, I thought a cashew and chicken green curry would be a nice change. My husband prefers a really spicy red curry, but my pal Mel was coming over and she can’t take very hot food, so I gave him a bowl of fresh chillies to up the burn-factor.
Our home décor bears testimony to our love of all things Thai; lamps, paintings, carvings … and one of the reasons I enjoyed this challenge so much is that it allowed me the opportunity of using my collection of Thai crockery.
Mel brought along a bottle of bubbles, as she is wont to do. My husband ate and escaped to the fireside, knowing that we would drive him batty with our conversation, which carried on well into the night.
Another unforgettable evening with my dear friend, thanks Mel.
And thank you Nina, for providing the inspiration.
