protests, be damned!

so i realize this makes me sound like a totally superficial, western hemisphere brat but oh well. all these headlines about the protests in thailand have given me a serious craving for thai food. since i live in a teeny town and the nearest thai restaurant is a good 65 miles away, i took matters into my own hands.

my first attempt at making homemade thai food was last year and it was a DISASTER. i used a rachael ray recipe and i should've known better. i can't stand her and her moronic abbrevs {evoo, sammies, etc.}, so why should her food be any different?  this time i picked a chef whose smokin’ hot bod recipes i really love: dave lieberman.  i made his spicy coconut shrimp with mango salsa and lime jasmine rice. nom nom {bonus points if you know what that's from}.  plus i had enough leftover for two lunches. bonus!

enjoy your sexy jewish chef fix and happy weekend, chickadees!

I always crave Thai food, so good! Rachel Ray bothers me too, and I tried to make her shrimp scampi once and it was bad!

What about Rachael Ray's word "Stoup"? I can't stand that one! It's her word for something that is thicker that soup but thinner than stew. I want to like her but she makes it really hard.

The Thai food sounds yummy!
