My notes: Despite our love of Thai food here in the U.S. there is a curious lack of information about its ingredients and preparation. I think that this in part stems from our fear of the unknown. Indeed, shopping in an Asian grocery store can feel like being in a foreign country. However, if you locate a friendly grocery store and ask for some help in finding the ingredients, you’ll be well on your way.
There’s nothing like watching your child lick what’s left of a batter of brownies off a bowl. What goes through my mind while this happens? “I want to grab that thing from her and have it all to myself, no I’m not sharing either!” Snap back to reality and before you know it… any evidence that there was batter to begin with is all gone.
