I tried out a delicious recipe from Cook’s Hideout – Eggplant in Coconut Gravy. I used up the Japanese Eggplants I bought at Super H. Mine is a little more saucier than the original because I added a little more tomato puree. I increased the amounts of spices to compensate. I’ll definitely make it again. Yum!
I tried out an Asian Pesto recipe from one of my Thai cookbooks. I tossed the pesto with rice noodles but the pesto was way too sweet. Yuck! I haven’t decided if I’m going to tinker with the recipe to try and improve it or just start over with a new recipe. The pesto has a mix of Thai basil, mint and culantro in it. Rob ate it and thought it was just ok.
I’m always on the lookout for nifty fabric. This time I happened to find cool fabric in the form of a twin sheet set at Super Target (which, by the way, has good prices on Muir Glen tomatoes). The set was 75% off, marked down from $29.99 to $7.48. Yay! I like the design on the fabric. It has a bit of an ethnic flair to it. You can’t beat the price for the amount of fabric I got. Now the hard part is deciding which crafty sewing project to use it in.
Have a wonderful weekend 😀
